During weekdays, the first half was reserved for business visitors and the second half for the general public. However, there were no business hours over the weekend.

This was the first time that tickets for Auto Expo were available online. Online portal was the official partner for SIAM as the online store to book tickets. These tickets were priced between Rs 200 and Rs 500. Tickets for Business visitors cost Rs. 500 while for the general public, it cost Rs. 300.


Reaching Auto Expo Mart, Greater Noida was easier for those who commuted with their own vehicles. For those that commuted via Metro, it was not difficult either. You could take an auto that charged Rs.200 (That is Noida; No negotiation – what so ever), or board the public transport. The traffic was easy and free in the morning compared to that in the afternoon.

The space available for Auto Expo this time was larger and huge compared to the space crunch in Pragati Maidan.

  1. Bhavna – It’s always good to come back here on your Blog. I was not able to go for Auto-Expo this year and you have captured it very well through your photographs, along with nice description.

    I heard that booking tickets through BookMyShow was not a good idea, as the queue to collect tickets at the venue was longer than the normal queue to buy entry-ticket. Not sure if you experienced the same.


    1. VJ, I took the business hours tickets, and was early to the venue.. I didn’t faced such an issue!!
      Yes, I agree- they should have given the facility to Print At Home, just like the service they now have for movies tickets!!


  2. This was a “Tour-de-Auto” Expo for me, However coming from a feminine gender so much about Automobiles, is blissful site to see..

    All I see what you missed is: that there were no SUPER-CARS this time, Porsche, Lamborghini, Aston-Martin, or for that matter Koenigseggs, All you one could see was a Souped-up GTR at Nissan’s Booth


  3. Take a bow to your words of appreciation.. !! Indeed they were souped-up from Nissan, yet to the layman – they were some super cars.. !! Hence the use! Appreciate your feedback , Nitin 🙂
    Thanks for the read !!
