‘Renew your way to Build a Multi-Million Dollar Business’

This is a Numero Uno exhibition, not just because of its global scale, but also because it is always at the vanguard of the latest in Architecture-Construction-Engineering-Design. SUMIT M. GANDHI, CMD, ABEC EXHIBITIONS & CONFERENCES PVT. LTD, who is the organizers of ACETECH, writes an exclusive, about how his trade show has evolved to Global Standards and how Tall Buildings will dominate the 21st Millennium skyline!


ABEC Exhibitions & Conferences Pvt. Ltd, over the years has been conceptualising, over 70 shows, across 10 verticals, in over 19 major cities across India, are known to be the frontrunners in the Indian trade exhibition and conference market, impelling businesses for well over two decades. ABEC Asian Business Exhibitions & Conferences Pvt Ltd. flagship exhibition, ACETECH– is Asia’s largest and world’s third largest Exhibition that showcases 22 plus segments under Architecture, Construction, Engineering, infrastructure, and Design.
“I firmly believe that ACETECH has evolved into a celebration of trends, technology, and innovation under one productive roof. We cover everything, from sourcing building materials supplies to the latest trends in the architectural, home décor, and interior design segments. If you're looking at expanding your social quotient and network circuit with like-minded and exceedingly accomplished go-getters, ACETECH is the Mecca of it all.”


Incepted in the year 2006, ET ACETECH has been conceptualised and executed by ABEC Exhibitions & Conferences Pvt. Ltd to bring eminent architects, designers, developers, engineers, contracting companies, material suppliers and technology providers under one roof for displaying and sourcing products expediently. The concept has evolved exponentially over time and has transformed into a premier platform for hosting and promoting innovations in the industry and creating better business networking opportunities among decision makers of procurement companies and suppliers today.
What started as an exhibition concept executed in Mumbai for the very first time, has now expanded its presence across major cities pan India like Delhi, Bengaluru, and Hyderabad. An indisputable leader in the Indian trade fair domain, ACETECH is also rightly deemed as the largest exhibition in Asia and the third largest in the world.
The show format enables exhibitors from around the world to showcase their potential by providing detailed demonstrations of latest products and services within industry-segmented pavilions. The Allied Events and Conferences formulated by our team, aims to bring the industry leaders and government bodies together to network, exchange ideas and invest in a progressive nation-building activity.
This year, ET ACETECH 2017, has raised the bar. The show will be a perfect platform for the finest worldwide brands to meet eminent architects, real estate developers, equity investors in infrastructure, builders, engineers, designers, constructors, and hoteliers, from across the globe. Buyers, suppliers, delegates and decision-makers will assemble at the show and share, witness and pick from a wide variety of options available for their respective businesses. Each year we unveil a brand new proposition, a beneficial initiative, an unforeseen opportunity or a sub-platform to enhance productivity to its maximum. We stage 10 Allied Events across 4 cities on a large-scale, which will house not only the participating brands and professionals but also eminent speakers and delegates to grace the event. The allied events will include ACETECH Design Wall, ACETECH Connect, ACETECH Alpha Awards, Greenbuild, Grand Stand Awards, Ace Interface, The Design Mock up Studio- ACE Lounge, Walk the Talk with your Mentor, World of Fenestration, and ADAPT. To give you an insight, let me elaborate on a few.


To provide our tradeshow a truly holistic approach, we leave no stone unturned. I am certain we have the ability to fascinate, motivate and encourage industry personnel enough to push them beyond their limits and consequently push the industry forward. It may have started as just a platform but few of us have realised that it is, in fact, forming the backbone of the highly acclaimed Building Industry.
Over the years, revered government authorities have extended their support to the exhibition. Last year, Nitin Gadkari, Hon'bleUnion Minister for Road Transport, Highways, and Shipping, inaugurated the Delhi 2015 edition while Devendra Fadnavis, Chief Minister, Maharashtra, inaugurated the Mumbai 2014 edition, and Venkaiah Naidu, Union Minister of Urban Development, inaugurated the Delhi 2014 edition, and Prakash Jawadekar, Minister of Environment & Forests and Climate Change, was part of the Global Green Summit 2014 in Delhi. The presence of such eminent personalities is further validation that the work we do continues to directly contribute to the growth of our country.
With steady growth, comes progress. The future of architectural advancement relies heavily on tall and sustainable buildings.  
 The incredible development and expansion of tall buildings around the world through the past decades shows the significant role of this type of building in the past, current, and future urbanism, particularly in dense cities.
Based on their past and current trends in architectural features and structural design, the future of skyscrapers is proving, maybe! Even the sky is not the limit.
‘Powerful insights, Global innovations– The Economic Times ACETECH’



Design Wall is an innovation-centric allied event where latest technologies and trends in the construction, architecture and design industry are by judged by over 450 eminent names from the architecture, design and construction fraternity. The winners decided are then displayed on the splendid digital wall created at the venue during the ACETECH show days.
Connect, on the other hand, is an incubator of business partnerships. This unique platform is a buyers and vendors meeting point and organizes direct meetings between purchase managers/senior personnel of leading Architects, Design Firms, and Realtors, with the brands exhibiting at ACETECH.
Greenbuild is the world's largest conference and expo dedicated to green building. Since 2002, it has been held annually in the United States. During the past two years, it has expanded its reach to include other nations as well. The objective of launching Greenbuild in India is to resolve the challenges revolving around topics like resources, materials, sustainability, optimisation, and building technology.
Alpha Awards is a high-profile awards night and corporate networking event that curates an event where the leaders of the construction, architecture, and design industry, gather to celebrate excellence in their field. Earlier known as the ACETECH Felicitation and Gala Networking Night, the event was conceptualised in the year 2008 to be an elite black-tie affair that felicitates pioneers and trailblazers in the industry.
Grand Stand Awards is specially created to appreciate and honor the efforts of exhibitors and participants who have put in their best to make their stand spaces look fantastic and grand. The stand, which displays originality of design, innovation, visual impact, effective use of materials and the outstanding use of space, color, texture, lighting, and graphics in booths, will have an upper hand over the others. Acknowledging the efforts invested in coming up with stellar stands and brilliantly designed booths, the Grand Stand Awards, have arranged for an accomplished panel of over 500 architects and interior designers that will judge and reward the best stalls at the show.
ACE Interface aims to add more value and drive better practices within the business; in order to impress new prospects, associate with new clients, generate new partnerships and elevate the industry to greater heights. By providing participants an opportunity to make new, prosperous business connections with top brands, and go beyond the traditional exchange of experience.
World of Fenestration is a niche conclave designed to unite the architects, fabricators, developers, policy makers, façade consultants, engineers, procurement managers, and stakeholders from the Indian industry and beyond to drive discussions on how aesthetics and design trends can be harmonised with energy-efficient building technologies. Perhaps one of our more interactive initiatives, Walk the Talk with Your Mentor, is a means to empower architecture and design students to meet stalwarts of Architecture and Design in India. It not only encompasses discussion forums and sessions with Mentors but workshops to empower design and architecture education in India.
ADAPT is the foremost student pan-India Design and Architecture competition that provides a platform to students to showcase their projects and presentation to a jury consisting of Architects from the industry. The competition is an endeavor by ACETECH for building an evocative platform to empower deserving students to work with qualitative mentors.
