Held at the RAI Centre Amsterdam, METSTRADE is the world’s largest trade exhibition of marine equipment, materials and systems. Since launching in 1988 the international B2B exhibition for the marine leisure industry has served as a platform for innovation, market developments and networking.

In addition to the overall marine industry, METS caters for three specialist sectors, namely Superyachts, Marinas and Yards and Construction materials.

The globally renowned DAME Design Awards at METSTRADE has opened for entries with new reimagined categories that reflect the rapidly changing nature of marine technology and the industry’s future customers.The DAME is a truly unique competition that highlights the merits of excellent design in all its many facets. Everything is assessed, from functionality, and innovation, through to integration, practicality of use, price to performance ratio and presentation. Entrants must also explain how environmental impact reduction has been considered across the whole product design.

DAME entries in 2023 will be judged against eight completely new categories, redesigned in response to the evolving world around us. They reflect how end users are likely to interact with marine equipment in the future. They also accommodate major shifts of industry focus, such as moves towards interoperability, automation and alternative energy and propulsion. 

  • Personal Equipment
  • Comfort & Entertainment Afloat
  • Navigation & Communication
  • Electronic & Electrical systems
  • Propulsion & Dynamics
  • Deck Equipment
  • Security & Safety Aboard
  • Shoreside Equipment & Materials

The Jury will additionally name a product from among the field of DAME nominations as an Environmental Design Award winner if it finds an exemplar product that is well designed and has clear and obvious merit.
