Being a Chartered Accountant, his brilliant mind made ACETECH what it is today, the biggest show in the Asian sub-continent and the 3rd Largest in the world.
Perfection and greatness do not need an introduction. Same can be said for Mr. Gandhi and ABEC. Driven by his relentless pursue for success and industry dominance, ABEC is a brand matched by none when it comes to exhibitions. With total dominance in the market of 48 countries for over a decade and a half, ABEC is the success story that companies aspire to be.
ACETECH is that show where 800,000+ people visit each year to experience excellence and finesse in Architecture, Interior and Design arenas. Trusts of over 5000 brands, which is growing consistently every year, ACETECH is the one stop show where 22 different segments are seamlessly exhibited. Transforming from their formative years of commissioning small events in the Oil & Gas sector to finding the niche, figuring out the ‘What, Why and Where’ and evaluating strengths and weaknesses of their competition, ABEC today organizes more than 20 exhibitions in a year.
What makes ACETECH unique is the way the entire show provides a platform, for the masters of the industry as well as the aspiring new brands. Each brand gets the exposure to the sharpest minds in the industry, legends like Dr. Niranjan Hiranandani (Hiranandani Group), Ashish Raheja (Raheja Universal), Najeeb Khan (KGD Architecture), Anuj Puri (ANAROCK Property Consultants), Sandeep Runwal (Runwal Group), Boman Irani (Rustomjee Group), Jimmy Mistry (Della Group), Kamal Malik (Malik Architecture) Hafeez Contractor, Vikas Oberoi ( Oberoi Realty) and many more, have always given rave reviews of ACETECH and applauded Mr. Gandhi and team ABEC for the level of dedication and commitment to make every ACETECH show a resounding success.
ACETECH also inspires brands to showcase themselves better each year by holding allied events such as ACE Connect, Design Conclave, Design wall, Grand Stand Awards, Light Design Automation Summit (LDA) etc. It gives the exhibitors and the esteemed visiting members of the industry a chance to widen the network and interact in a productive manner.
These one of the kind allied events are the brainchild of team ABEC, who have envisioned a world beyond just normal exhibiting but to create an atmosphere where each of the participating brand get a unique experience where their brand gets a new face value with the right audience and at the same time are rewarded for their collective approach.
To reach the top summit is one thing but to be on the top is the real success. The team has time and again proved it by making ABEC the top company and ACETECH the top show and keep it that way for years and will continue to do so for decades. Looking back at an incredible legacy rooted in the family-run business values, ABEC began its journey in 1996 and down the years has positioned itself at the forefront of the Indian event industry spearheaded by Team ABEC with the extraordinary support of Mr. Sumit Gandhi.
The well-crafted experience of ACETECH is led by a focused team comprising over 300+ staff members across Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and Hyderabad along with the highly driven and entrepreneurial founder, which reflected in ABEC getting the title of ‘The Leading Show: Building Materials & Construction’ at the Exhibition Excellence Awards 2020. ‘We are now seen as the single-window exhibition property that can help a brand establish itself in this market. Ours is the only platform in which a brand interested in the Indian market can get reactions to their product offerings first-hand from the kind of audience they are targeting. ACETECH is perfectly poised to act as a catalyst to the government’s vision and initiative of Smart Cities and Make in India, by bringing businesses together and providing a platform for international brands to test the waters in the Indian market.” says Mr. Gandhi.
The brilliance of Team ABEC and their vision made ACE REFLECT, a show that is based in 16+ tier two cities across India. ACE REFLECT not only gives the established brands to reach out to their regional audiences but also creates an opportunity for the smaller regional brands to stand shoulder to shoulder with the titans of the industry and create a whole new network for their brand.
The team’s vision for the near future is a continued investment to further establish ABEC as the unrivalled exhibition company in various diverse segments and provide exhibitors an opportunity to engage with the trade community in a completely new dimension. The overarching aim is to scale up and add more employees while developing a talent pool within the company, which can enable a systematic change that crosses boundaries, benefits the exhibition industry in general, while also allowing ABEC to grab a bigger market share. The team now wants the brand to be global with a bigger outreach into international market and making ACETECH the biggest and most successful global entity which will lay the foundation to make the company a Global Leader in true sense.
