Oye, FreeDaBad ke Keshavan Paramu Zen! We'll have to wait for more people to post up here with their arrival and departure itenary, then it'll be easier to find a convenient date. What say?

BTW, those who're planning to come to delhi, please get your bookings as early as possible to avoid exorbitant rates.

One suggestion to all those who are flying to Delhi.
Try to get day time (afternoon) flights if possible else there's an every chance of your flight getting delayed due to the foggy conditons expected in Jan.

Ahhh...finally get back to the forum after two days of constant travelling!! Welcome to this side of the country boys, will make sure that you all have a gala time!

Now once we have confirmed numbers around the 1st week of Jan, will post the final plan of what we intend to do on the 11th evening. Meanwhile, apart from the Farmhouse BBQ (fantastic idea btw) anyone have any other suggestions??

It might be a family meet Zak, behave yourself. Unless, you want me to send pics of you in Mumbai to your Pop!

I'm in. Arriving in Delhi on the 13th and leaving on the 16th. Can any of the Delhi Bhpians suggest a good-yet-cheap hotel nearby Pragati Maidan?

P.S.....Anyone from Pune going?

The farmhouse BBQ is perfect.We will have many Bhp-ians and the best place would be the farmhouse.

After this lot gets there, I'm sure the expo will be more of a sideshow.

Ok, just checked the show timings and here's an important point to remember: DO NOT even think of visiting the show on the 12th & 13th, why you may ask? Well that's because that's the weekend and on these days the show is open to the public all day, so the amount of crowd present there is going to be absolutely ridiculous & it's going to be an harrowing experience going by what has been happening for the past few years.

So, please keep your plans for the 11th only so that you can visit the show during the period for Business visitors & view it in relative peace with not too much of crowds.

You can see the show schedule here: 2008 Automotive Show India :: Automotive Equipments India :: Automotive Suppliers Expo in India :: Automotive Parts Suppliers in India :: International Automotive Exhibition
