Organizers of the Delhi Auto Expo may move the next edition of the event to Greater Noida
The move comes after industry stalwarts such as Ratan Tata and Anand Mahindra criticized the Auto Expo organizers for poor management of the event earlier this year. The venue of the event was overcrowded on the first two days, which were r...eserved for the media and special invitees.
“They (industry bodies) plan to revamp the show completely. An event committee has been formed at Siam to look into the matter,” said another official. “This is definitely in the wake of a demand for better management from the industry as we fork out big money each year just to participate in the event.”
Domestic auto companies unveiled 24 cars and foreign firms eight in the latest edition of the Auto Expo. In addition to this, eight two-wheelers were unveiled by home-grown firms. About 1,500 exhibitors from 24 nations, including the US, China, Thailand and Turkey, participated in the event.
The Delhi edition, considered one of the largest auto expos in the world, is spread across 115,000 sq. m of exhibition space.
