Design Conclave, an integral part of ACETECH, aimed to celebrate and showcase revolutionary products and technologies that are reshaping the realms of architecture, design, and their practical applications. This year, Design Conclave 2023 also introduced “One-on-One” interactive meetings, creating an environment conducive to meaningful discussions and collaborations. With over 250 top architects, designers and industry titans gracing the event, this Conclave offered unprecedented networking opportunities for all participants. The event has always garnered substantial industry support, and serves as a crucial launchpad for promising brands. Over the years, renowned architects like Naushir Devitre, Rajiv Parekh, Reza Kabul, Kanhai Gandhi, Yatin Patel, Alan Abraham and others have been associated with the Design Conclave, underlining its significance in the industry.
The ACE ALPHA Awards; which recognises and honours the best players within the industry, was comprised of an extensive panel discussion followed by a felicitation process. The event was graced by Chief Guest, Mr. Prasad Lad, Member of Maharashtra Legislative Council, and featured prominent speakers including Ashish Raheja, Raheja Universal Ltd., Ashish R.

Subsequently, the Design Conclave involves a meticulous judging process by the eminent jury that eventually leads to one on one business meetings, with the respective candidates. ACETECH shortlisted top brands from the entries received, who were then granted a platform to present their innovative services, products, and technologies. Each shortlisted brand had the opportunity to showcase their innovations on a dedicated 1×1 meter space and make a compelling three-minute presentation to the jury, which was followed by a thorough Q&A session. The winners were selected after an extensive evaluation process, and had the privilege of having their products showcased on the magnificent video wall throughout the ACETECH show.
Sumit Gandhi, Founder and Promoter of ABEC Exhibitions & Conferences Pvt.
