@iceman : probably means things are so perfect that they don't need a Help Desk

Condor and myself were thinking about whether to go and check this out, but decided to wait for opinions here. Looks like we saved ourselves the time and hassle.

I for sure am not wasting my time on this one. Thanks for the opinion guys.

EDIT: My brother happened to call me now and said that this show is a waste of time and money. Will post a few pics of the flop show once he is home.

An absolutely horrendous show! A waste of time and money. As my better half put it, standing on M G Road in the evening will give you a better chance of spotting exotics.

Only the Yamaha stand had anything remotely exotic on it (a few superbike types) and a point to be noted was this was the only crowded stall.

There were a few car interior companies also present, with pretty garish creations.

The cars present there were a few Swifts, a few lancers, a S-Class, an A Star, SX4, Fabia, Laura, Altis, VW Caravelle etc. The only car present in the show and not available in India was a 90s Miata.

Default Small Report

Today I visited this place with my family and my friend Sanjay. In the parking lot at least 500 cars and equal number of bikes, so visitors are
around 2000 in number at a time.

Decent planning is done, its similar to IT.com exhibition, I don't know If it can be called International show but its more or less same as Vaahan Yaatra

Entry fees 50/- and lucky coupon drop (expect call from Club Mahindra or Country Club asking you are selected and come for session where they will offer membership etc.. ) but still we filled the coupon and dropped in the box thinking may be we might get some thing better this time as lucky winner.

Now interesting part: First stall next to Help Desk/Registration desk is Yamahaa carry bag distribution stall which has brouchers etc.. nice carry BAG. We thought thats entrance and stood in queue but realized from other side people take that yamahaa carry bag and come out. So we also followed the same. Poor Yamahaa guys might have run out of carry bags within no time.

Then started real show of automobiles and other stuffs.

I have loaded few pictures:

Over all this is good show to know about different stuffs related to automobile. My daughter enjoyed more than us. While coming back we visited Halli Mane, Malleshwaram to have ice cream/dosa etc..

There are lot more stuffs than pictures I have loaded, its worth for 50/- we pay I feel and good time pass for 2 hours.

Regards,

Ravi.

I honestly believe the best exhibit at the show was this.RVCE's race car powered by a cbr 600cc engine.They have taken it to many famous tracks around the world.It really is one awesome machine.

Exactly my view.
It took me just 45 minutes to roam around. I could not see even a single ICE install on display . Really disappointed.
