The next edition of India’s flagship biennial automobile show, Auto Expo, will be held from February 6-12, 2014 at Greater Noida, moving away from the traditional venue of Pragati Maidan.

The Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) today said the change in timing and venue was mainly to avoid clash with the Detroit Auto Show and unavailability of Pragati Maidan.

Traditionally, the auto expo starts in the first week of January.

“In the next Auto Expo, which will be held from February 6-12, we will be showing only vehicles and accessories at the India Expo Centre and Mart at Greater Noida,” SIAM Director General Vishnu Mathur told reporters here.

When asked what necessitated the change, he said, “Lot of global CEOs who wanted to be here have said to us that they could not because of their engagement with the Detroit Auto Show. So we decided to shift our Auto Expo to February”.

For the components, the exhibition will be held in a separate venue and is being still worked out, he added.

On moving out from Pragati Maidan, Mathur said, “In February 2014, it is not available and hence we had to move to Greater Noida”.

SIAM Deputy Director General Sugato Sen said the Auto Expo 2014 will be much bigger in terms of exhibition space.

“We will have 50,000 square metres of occupied space by exhibitors as compared to less than 40,000 square metre that we had this year’s Auto Expo,” Sen said.

In order to have a trial run ahead of the 2014 expo, SIAM will be organising a bus and utility vehicles show from February 15-18, 2013 he added.

Mathur said moving the Auto Expo to a farther place from the main city will not be an issue as “we are hoping that only the serious visitors will now come”.

At the end of Auto Expo 2012, the organisers — SIAM, Automotive Component Manufacturers Association (ACMA) and Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) — had said they were mulling to move the next edition of the biennial trade show out of Pragati Maidan to a more spacious ‘world-class’ location so that it can become the largest in the world.

Amid criticism over mismanagement and crowd control in this year’s edition, entry of visitors was restricted due to security and infrastructure issues and a total of 7,00,000 people had visited the expo during the week-long trade show.

  • Note the name of cities of other F1 races...they are ACTUALS. F1 track to world is knows to be in delhi Auto expo mart will be called Delhi auto expo mart......as always.... it doesnt put Gnoida on any map....it puts delhi... Commercial markets in Gnoida have not even gained 5% extra sales due to F1... Lack of enthusiansm by gnoida authority, exceptionally poor marketing by authority, major law and order problems, pathetic public transportation (incl. Lack of wireless taxi services), very very ordinary gentry, lack of class are main reasons why inspite of having world class events....people have Zero interest in this city

  • 2014? Wasn't it going to be in 2013? Maybe I heard wrong or it is the trial run as mentioned.

    I feel GN will apparently start seeing more young folks (such as myself) as areas such as Noida and Gurgaon are becoming more and more out of reach. Things would apparently become better. Where would I be buying a house if I started my job this year? Doubt it would be Gurgaon or Noida. I would probably be heading to GN despite its current shape, there is nothing else I could afford.

  • Yes finally Greater Noida becomes Delhi.
    All the infra we have in GN is for benefit of Delhi only so GN be called Delhi.

    Dear
    What current shape are you referring to? GN is a well planned,beautiful area with wide roads and infra in place even before people started moving in.
    So don't buy under any majboori of money. I think buying here makes better sense than going to sector 103,... of Gurgaon if you are not working in GGN or Manesar.

  • I guess you got it all wrong...........this means the impression is Noida and G noida are more integrated with Delhi infra wise and these are considered satellite extension of Delhi rather than Gurgaon which is like a separate city from delhi..........this will definitely be helpful for Noida/gnoida
