DAME Design Award 2019 nominees announced

Fifty-nine products (https://www.metstrade.com/innovation/dame-nominees), from a total field of 118 entries, have been nominated for a coveted DAME award and will be available to view at METSTRADE. The final selection of nominations represents a wide-ranging field of products, from new materials and items of personal boating equipment, to complex electronics and large items of machinery. Themes within the products nominated included increased use of environmentally friendly materials and greater adaption of technology to improve accessibility to boating.

The winners will be announced on 19th November, the opening day of METSTRADE.

Birgit Schnaase, the DAME Jury Chair, has 24 years of experience as an engineer and interior designer working on notable yacht, aircraft and house interior design projects. She says: “The Jury discussed at our nomination meeting just how influential design is in the world around us. It is critical that marine companies focus on design, in all of its aspects, to ensure that consumer expectations are met when they go boating. We also need smart design to address important issues like production efficiency, environmental impact improvement and greater integration. The DAME Awards has long recognised this and its role in identifying stand-out examples of good practice has never been more valuable.”

The DAME Design Award celebrates everything that is important about marine equipment design, from aesthetics to functionality, integration to packaging and price efficiency to lifecycle management. It offers opportunities for all METSTRADE Show exhibitors from around the world to submit their latest products.
