Auto Expo 2012 may have a second venue within the capital region because the entire space at Pragati Maidan has been sold and there is a long queue of prospective participants outside. "We are contemplating a second location to accommodate the entire auto industry in an integrated manner," said Vishnu Mathur who heads the country's auto industry body. The Indian Auto Expo has become a priority destination for most automakers over the years when the country emerged the second fastest-growing car market and a global leader in truck and bus sales. But space is scarce.

The entire exhibition space at Pragati Maidan, which hosted all the 10 previous motor shows here, was sold in less than a week. And many multinationals are yet to ensure their participation in the world's largest motor show in attracting visitors. The venue has 55,000 square metre space, which is just about half of total demand, according to Mathur, director general of the Society of Indian Automobile Industry. The society jointly organises the show with industry body CII and auto component body ACMA. A person close to the organisers said Expo Mart at Noida could be the second venue that will accommodate component makers and ancillaries units. Space crunch had forced some big companies including Ford India to miss the previous auto show in 2010. There were several disruptions including cancellation of promotional events. The problem will be worse next year if Pragati Maidan remains the only venue, because there are more participants and there may be more visitors than last year's two million. There will also be 35 vehicle launches, 10 more than last time. Source: Economic Times

Better they keep the venue somewhere outside the city where there is less chaos and also keep the expo open for more days.

well its good they are changing venue because now anybody comes at expo even if they dont know about cars or have any interest in them!! but going to two venues will become difficult for serious visitors..
