Still, it is almost a year away but the officials have announced the schedule of 2016 Indian Auto Expo. The 13th Delhi Auto Expo would be held between February 5-9, 2016, at India Expo Mart in Greater Noida. The 2014 edition of the Expo - India's biggest automotive show - saw an unprecedented growth in the number of visitors and registered record footfall.
Quite identical to 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. Although last year, the organisers were a bit sceptical about shifting the venue from the traditional Pragati Maidan to India Expo Mart in Greater Noida as it was too far away from the city and they feared it would have a lesser footfall, but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise. However, the Auto Components Expo, which was held at Pragati Maidan didn't draw much visitors and it turned out to be quite dull. And, hence, this year component manufacturers might not be too happy with the decision of retaining the same venue of Pragati Maidan.
As always, the 2016 Indian Auto Expo would have numerous unveilings, showcases and launches. The 12th edition saw a couple of world premieres taking place and with 13th edition, we can expect even more glamour. Some of the most anticipated launches to take place at the 2016 Expo are Jaguar XE, Volkswagen Passat, Skoda Superb, Maruti YBA compact SUV, Tata Nexon etc. to name a few.
