  • Having worked with the AE Ventures team in a number of initiatives over the last 7 years, I have watched, first hand the “get it done” attitude and high level of professionalism that this team approaches any challenge. They are a creative group with great interpersonal skills and are very capable of bringing disparate teams together to achieve timely and very positive results. Whether it is a new vision or continuing to improve on projects already underway, the AE team has the bandwidth and creativity to build a new platform or expand an existing one.

  • John Galante combines a profound understanding of markets and unusual insight into what moves them. I look to John as a reference point driving innovation. John and his team at AE Ventures create value with an “out of the box” perspective that helps push my own vision outside the box to see the potential I too often overlook. AE Ventures creates synergies that deliver value and collaborations that deliver growth – building partnerships and networks that strengthen the industry.

  • It has been a pleasure working with John Galante and his excellent team for close to 10 years now. John took the lead, both emotionally and financially, to create the premium exhibition and education show, ESX, for the electronic security industry. Each year this new show has increased in scope and attendance reaching the primary decision makers in our industry. John is very creative, knows the industry extremely well and listens as well as effectively communicates his thoughts. I can without hesitation recommend John and his team.

  • “Having been involved on the Advisory Committees for several of AE Ventures’ events, I can attest to the hard work and effort that the staff put into every function. CE Pro Summit is my favorite and the most beneficial event each year. John Galante is an innovator who has assembled a top notch staff led by Nancy Franco. Their team facilitates the best conferences in our industry each and every year.”

    Michael Pope, President, Audio Video Interiors
