ACE Fair boasts of categories spanning across broadcasting, audio visuals, animation, games, character and merchandise, edutainment and licensing, VR and AR, and much more with majority of companies having a stall out there.

An estimated 9,000 visitors, many of them in family units, attended ACE Festival to experience the market and the diverse events prepared by the festival organiser, the ACE Fair Secretariat. 70 amateur creators participated in the amateur market and 70 companies set up their booth at the event. The ACE Fair also saw a book festival with all the necessary informations available about the areas, the fair was covering. On the whole, it was an enriching B2B experience for all the visitors and participants.
