About ABEC

We specialize in conceptualizing over 70 shows across 10 verticals, in over 19 major cities across India and are the forerunners in the Indian trade exhibition and conference market, impelling businesses for well over two decades. We achieved this by creating a platform like no other, where your company can connect with the local and global enterprises of every stature, leading to better business prospects for both parties. After successfully handling multiple verticals and hosting "ACETECH" - Asia’s largest and world’s 3rd largest Infrastructure & Architecture show, ABEC is working relentlessly towards creating novel exhibition formats that can attribute to innovative trade solutions and global business networks. Established in 1993 as Asian Business Exhibitions & Conferences, we envisioned a future where world-class trade shows and content led conferences would unleash a new world of possibilities for both top-class global brands, as well as buyers and sellers of every magnitude. Today, with obstinate commitment to excellence and innovation, we have become the Largest Private Sector Organizer of International Shows with almost 10% share of the Indian Exhibition Market.

With corporate offices in Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore, and support staff in several other cities, ABEC churns out trade shows of massive proportions, nationally. Managed by a dynamic group of experts who not only specialize in organizing top-notch trade shows, but also have sturdy associations with eminent trade organizations, government bodies and renowned industry professionals, every ABEC trade-show over shadows the last.

Our formats boast extensive publicity, complete with celebrity endorsements, extensive media associations, in depth seminars, exclusive in-show initiatives, and informative workshops - at ABEC we don't leave a stone unturned to ensure our events are memorable and offer our clients utmost commercial escalation. With newer show formats being successfully accomplished across 19 cities in India, ABEC is now eyeing newer, broader horizons. We’ve not come this far too only come this far.


Our vision is to remain market leaders in Indian sub-continent for trade fairs and continue to hold pole position by developing and innovating client centric, ROI-based marketing and sales platforms. We want to strengthen our position as leading trade fair organisers, achieve sustainable growth in revenues and improve profits of existing trade fairs.


Our mission is to provide end-to-end marketing solutions to corporates by creating vibrant market places through trade fairs, road shows, networking events and conferences. We aspire to adapt and evolve with client requirements, adequately integrate social media into our platforms and create virtual market places to further increase the reach for our stakeholders and partners.
