Deadline looms for DAME Award entries

RAI Amsterdam, organizers of the DAME Design Award, are reminding exhibitors to enter the competition before next week’s September 18, 2018 deadline.

In its 28 year, the DAME Design Award will be presented as part of the traditional breakfast briefing that opens the Metstrade international marine equipment show on Tuesday, November 13. The keynote speaker will be Hervé Gastinel, chief executive officer of Groupe Benteau and guests can see the products that drew the interest of the DAME judge’s panel of naval architects, boat, interior and industrial designers and consumer experts.

Entries for the DAME Award can be made via this link.

Last year’s DAME Award winner was Scanstrut for its RS Venture Connect Conversion Kit.
