The dates for the 13th Delhi Auto Expo have been announced. The event will be held from February 5-9, 2016, at India Expo Mart in Greater Noida.
The shift of venue last year, from Pragati Maidan to Greater Noida was a great success. Although there were fears that the venue's distance from the main city would act as a deterrent to visitors, the Expo saw a record number of footfalls in 2014. With positive sentiment on the rise in the auto industry, we can expect next year's Expo takes things to a new level. Like always, there will be new car launches; Jaguar has announced that its new XE sedan will debut in India at the Auto Expo 2016.
Interestingly, like in 2014, the Auto Components Expo – one of the biggest exhibitions of automotive components, technology and services – will take place during the same period, from February 4-7, at Pragati Maidan. However, this move may not go down too well with component manufacturers as last year, some felt the Auto Components Expo (being held at a separate venue) was sidelined.
