The Auto Expo-The Motor Show 2016 is going to get bigger and better this time. The India Expo Mart Ltd (IEML), Greater Noida, has been given a complete makeover with two large halls, allowing more breathing space to visitors and exhibitors along with flexibility for display. The total permanent expo area has gone up by 4,840 square metre.

The organisers are leaving no stone unturned to attract maximum visitors and exhibitors from around the world.

The 13th edition of the auto expo is scheduled from February 5-9, 2016, at the India Expo Mart & Centre, Greater Noida. Auto Expo-The Component Show would continue at Pragati Maidan from February 4 to 7, 2016.

The construction of two halls, with carpet area of 25,000 square metres and 12,240 square metres, respectively, has been completed.

Previously, the venue only had eight permanent halls measuring 27,648 square metres and the remaining display was curated in temporary hangers measuring 32,400 square metres.

The newly constructed halls are fully air-conditioned and have concrete flooring with trenches for utilities. Unlike the old halls, which have 5.3 metres clear height, the new halls have a minimum of 10 metres height and 13 metres in the centre of the halls. One of the halls has a side height of 15 metres and 18 metres in the centre.

The venue will have two pre-designated parking lots, P1 and P2, with a capacity of over 10,000 cars and bikes. The parking area would also have ticket counters. The venue would also provide wheelchair facility for the disabled.

The CISF, private security guards and local police will be posted at the halls. There will be round-the-clock CCTV surveillance with more than 180 cameras.

The local police will have PCR vans stationed in and around the venue to ensure smooth flow of traffic.

Other necessary security measures such as under-body vehicle scanners and sniffer dogs will also be present at the venue.
