Exhibitors have one more week to submit their most innovative designs for the METS Trade Design Awards.

The deadline is Sept. 20, and METS Trade Show organizer RAI Amsterdam is calling on exhibitors to enter the design competition for new marine equipment and accessories.

The DAME Awards will be judged by an independent international jury of experts. The winners will be announced during the METS Trade breakfast briefing on the opening day of the Nov. 15-17 show at the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre.

The awards are arranged every year as part of METS, an international business-to-business exhibition for the leisure marine industry.

Entrants’ fees go to charity. This year they will go to the African Medical and Research Foundation project “A healthy future for girls in Kilindi.”

This project is set up to improve the health of girls and young women by introducing an alternative rite of passage for female genital mutilation in a remote area in Tanzania, as well as increasing access to safe drinking water, good sanitation and hygiene.
