We are proud to announce that Stratis ICE has been nominated by the jury for the DAME Awards 2013. ICE is one of just two New Zealand products that made it through the selection process to be nominated: 52 finalists were selected from an initial 115 applicants across seven categories. The final judging will now see the jury select a maximum of seven category winners and one overall winner, with overall winners announced on the first morning of METS (Nov 19th).
The nomination is a great indication that we aren't the only ones who think ICE is a game changer. Doyle Stratis will be exhibiting in the Superyacht Pavilion at METS on Stand 10.715 so make sure you come and see us there to learn more about ICE and all our product range.
Chairman of the DAME Awards Jury, Bill Dixon, said the Jury was pleased both with the quality of many of the entries this year and also the effort made by companies to present their products in a clear and concise way.
“The number of nominations this year is the highest for some time,” Dixon reports. “This reflects the overall quality of the entry, which is undoubtedly improved on previous years.
“There were some standout categories with evidence of innovation. For example in marine electronics we saw some notable moves forward while the deck equipment, sails and rigging category generated a third of all nominations and brought a lot of very different products from several manufacturers to our attention. In fact we’ve had significant entries to consider in each category, so the final decisions will be very hard.”
