Auto Expo, the largest automotive show in Asia, came into being in 1985 and made its debut in 1986. The motor show marked upon the beginning of a whole new platform for the Indian automotive industry to witness the developments going on in the business and showcase its capability to the entire world. The first ever Auto Expo was held from 3-11 January, 1986, at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi, by the Society of Indian Automobile Manufactures (SIAM) and the Automotive Component Manufacturers Association of India (ACMA) and the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).
Auto Expo in India was initiated with an aim to propagate domestic automotive brands globally and take the industry to the next level. The first show was a huge success and then started the journey of Auto Expo, India. The next motor show was organized in the year 1993 since the Indian automotive industry at that time was not that extensive to need a convention with a high frequency. This time, however, a total of 7 countries participated, marking the successful outset of Auto Expo.
Since 1998, Auto Expo has been held biennially. Every two years, the capital beams in the automotive world since all the major Indian as well as global auto makers gather at this huge event to showcase their best. This show also gives them a great platform to launch their new vehicles and exhibit motor parts.
The event gives an intense boost to the economy of India, which is already on its way to become the third-largest auto market in the world. The Auto Expo, Delhi focusses on how to make the everyday commuting of laymen easy and pocket friendly.
During the time Auto Expo is going on or is about to begin, the Internet and paper media are flooded with Auto Expo news, previous Auto Expo photos and information on cars to be launched at Auto Expo to feed the auto-savvy people. The overwhelming response and the ever increasing crowd at the Auto Expo made the organizers to divide the show into two parts in 2014 to be held at separate venues: Auto Expo – The Motor Show and Auto Expo – The Component Show.
Since its inception, the Auto Expo has grown at a high pace in the direction of growth. The important ministers, foreign delegations and celebrities who visit the event increase the value and demand of this show even more. As we move further, the organizers of this show hope to touch all heights and establish our country as the representative of the global automotive industry.
