Auto Expo 2014 commences on February 6

New Delhi, Feb 2 (): The 12th edition of the Indian automobile division’s grand expo will open for industry on February 6 and will open for public a day later on February 7 and will be held until February 11. This time the show is being held in Greater Noida and not at Pragati Maidan.

Several new launches are happening this week at the show. Companies will launch 20 new vehicles at the event and display more than 50 automobiles for the first time ever in India. This number is almost twice as much as the 2012 edition.

This year Auto Expo has moved to a new place to make things smoother for the automobile lovers. Unlike the 2012 Auto Expo, 2014 Expo will be divided into two sections — Components exhibition and the Motor Show. The Motor Show will be held between February 7 and 11 at the India Expo Mart in Greater Noida while the Components show will be conducted between February 6 and 9 at Pragati Maidan.

It looks many companies have made arrangements to attend the editions of the Delhi-based show with only a few manufacturers staying away. But there is more to this biennial event than just the wide collection of cars, motorcycles and new technologies.

Auto Expo organisers have brought out an app which is presented on iOS, Android and Blackberry. This application will provide updated information about the Motor Show to the visitors in just a finger tip.

This free app helps to list out the names of the exhibitors and the site map to locate an exhibitor. In addition to these facilities, the app also gives you directions about parking, shuttle service and the all-important tickets. Visitors can also book their tickets through this app. Having the easy-to-navigate interface and innovative functions, the application is very user-friendly.
