The best time to visit the show is before lunch as thats the business hour and the crowds havn't riolled in . After lunch its time to pack and exit as soon as you can as then the hundreds and thousands of people with stupid questions start to enter . Half an hour after that -- the entire place is a mess .

So before lunch guys .... after lunch should be beer session !!

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
One thing I would like to add here is that there are buiness hrs but it is of no use. There is a registration desk at the entry of Pragti Madan in which one has to give his/her visiting card and they will print a pass with your name on it. So technically the entry to Auto Expo is 100 % free and every day is open to public and that to free.

So I would suggest to all car lovers to visit the Expo in the early hrs only. Like 10am to 2 pm. If you did not covered he whole show visit next day again.

Guys, let me remind you once again, if you're coming from out of town, please get your accomodation done asap. In Delhi nowadays the hotels are really running full & also the rates are very high. If you leave it till the last moment you'll be paying through your nose.

No, no such arrangement on the 10th unless you have Press passes. Better you start on the 11th unless you want to waste a day.

Here's a bit of new information. I will be present, at the show, as part of the show. The twins will be with me. Not the swift demo cars. The twins .

While there will be no JBL stall and no JBL party, JBL will be part of a leading car manufacturers stall and announcing an important collaboration. The rest of the information is classified for now.

But look for me and the girls. I will be present on all days. I hope to see you there.

If I may add, it's from the 9th Jan to the 17th. 9 days.

Sam, you are gonna be pretty hard to miss in your orange shorts and twins on your arm.

I can see this now... Rags giving instructions how to get there to his friends "...turn right and drive about 100 yards, you will see a tall, long haired man in orange shorts with a girl on each arm - no you are not seeing double - but when you see this man you know you have reached".
