Last Call For METS Design Award Entries


Companies interested in submitting new products for consideration in the annual Design Award METS (DAME) program have until end-of-day Tuesday to submit their application.

Described as the world's most prestigious design competition for new marine equipment and accessories, the annual METS DAME Award program puts innovative new products into the spotlight at the show, helping to generate significant product awareness and international media interest.

Exhibitors at the 2013 METS are invited to complete the online application by September 17, 2013. Click here to download a PDF application. The entry fee is € 150 per product, with all proceeds donated to boating-related charities. For 2013, DAME Award entries will be donated to two groups – Sailability, an organization dedicated to making boating accessible to people with disabilities, and Freedom Waters, an organization that aims to provide boating opportunities for people with disabilities, life threatening illnesses, youth at risk, and others with special needs.

The 26th METS will be held from November 19 to 21 2013 at the Amsterdam RAI Convention Centre, the Netherlands.
