A talented design student at the University of Lincoln has been invited to exhibit his work at an international conference in the Netherlands.


Michael Salvati (21), a third-year Design for Exhibitions and Museums student, has scooped first prize in the TiLE (Trends, Technology, Theming and
Design in Leisure Environments) 2006 Young Designer Award competition.


His submission was a design brief for an exhibition raising awareness of the importance of water in everyday life for the 2008 Expo in Zaragoza in Spain.


As part of his prize Michael is going to TiLE 2006 conference at the Maastricht Exhibition & Congress Centre from Tuesday 20th Thursday 22nd June.


The internationally renowned event is an exhibition, conference and networking opportunity for operators of attractions, venues and facilities that are used by the people in their leisure time such as theme parks or museums.


Winning the TiLE Young Designer Award offers an unparalleled chance to meet the leading design and multimedia companies who can provide an opportunity for future employment.


Its the sixth time a student at the University of Lincoln has won the competition. Last years winner Fiona Pook now works for HKD, an exhibition design company in London.


Course leader Pam Locker said its a tribute to the high calibre of students who choose to study at the university.


Im absolutely delighted to see another University of Lincoln student achieving international recognition for the high standard of their work. Michael is one of our top students and has already secured a full-time job after he graduates in September. He has a very promising future ahead of him.
