Hosted by Asian Business Publications Ltd (ABPL), the event is now into its 12th year and promises to be bigger and better than ever before as 2012 marks the 40th anniversary of the publishing group’s iconic newspapers, Asian Voice and Gujarat Samachar. The ceremony will welcome a who’s who of high profile dignitaries, cross party politicians, celebrities and high achievers from the Asian community.

An independent panel of judges is given total freedom to select a shortlist and then the winner in each category. Not only subscribers and readers of Asian Voice and Gujarat Samachar but also the wider community is invited to nominate across the various categories. Each year, Asian Achievers Awards receive a record number of nominations and the calibre of candidates continues to go from strength to strength.
