The Indian Auto Expo, that happens every 2 years, always becomes bigger than the previous editions and has grown so much that the current venue at Pragati Maidan can be best described as inadequate. What makes it even worse is the mis-organization that prevails. Back at the 2012 Indian Auto Expo, anyone even remotely related with a high ranking government official or politician was found hijacking the press days and the condition was so bad that we got the Media Passes only on the last Media Day of the event.
Now, in what can be easily termed as great development, it has emerged that the next edition of Indian Auto Expo, scheduled to be held in 2014, would take place at India Expo Mart Center, Greater Noida. This announcement comes straight from the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) and the Indian Auto Expo 2014 will be held from 6th Feb to 12th Feb, 2014.
The new location boasts of 8 exhibition halls, a VIP lounge, a board room, a media room, a meeting room, a business center, an internet café, central Wi-Fi system, buyers lodge, 100% power backup, and travel desks.
The India Expo Mart Center also has a car parking large enough to hold as many as 4,000 cars.
