Location: Paredes, Portugal
Venue: Art on Chairs Exhibition
Date: 15th of November 2012
The 6th edition of the DME Award was celebrated in 2012 in the rustic city of Paredes, Portugal. Paredes is a lovely, quaint city located in northern Portugal, an area rooted in entrepreneurial tradition. The DME Award Ceremony presented itself as the closing act of the international “Art on Chairs” festival held in Paredes. Art on Chairs was an international exhibition with the purpose of creating the largest world event of chairs associated with art and design.
On the 15th of November, the DME Award placed a spotlight on submissions that displayed leadership in innovation and excellence in Design Management. Throughout the day of the DME Award Ceremony a series of events took place, including a morning visit to several exhibitions within the “Art on Chairs” project. The afternoon was filled with a DME Award Conference showcasing exemplary cases of Design Management in businesses. This provided ample opportunity to exchange the latest developments in Design Management and network with European entrepreneurs. This all eventually culminated to the DME Award Ceremony, unveiling the winners amongst a strong selection of submissions from companies such as Mars, Beiersdorf, Schneider Electric and Kale.
