Cool. But what kind of participation are we talking here. Will it be full scale or a very toned down version?

@mile: It wont be a bigg participation like "The Auto Expo", but will have some stunt activities and torture track for suv.

Guys just came back from Hyderabad and started my pc while sipping water.
I wish I could spend some more time at Hyderabad.
The venue was nice and had some huge halls.
I saw some nice and some w&w rides in Hyderabad, but, because I was moving in a cab (a MERU cab Logan) and the rides I spotted were moving too and mostly on the other side of the road, I couldn't click pics :-(
I saw a Red indigo with a transparent spoiler
a yellow zen with negative offset alloys (very wide tires)
a white maruti 800 (old model may be 95-96) with negative offset alloys (very wide tires)
a zen with 14" tires
a black accent with 15" white rims
maroon civic with BBS rims at the airport
A brand new white polo
modded sonata
and a drag of innova and bmw x3, lol the innova was left farr behind.
will try to post pics late in the night, or tomorrow from office.
cya.

psst: 1 thing I couldn't understood why all the auto rickshaws had a sticker "4 in all" (may be they can accommodate 4 people?)

That's the Hyderabadi way to remind the auto driver that auto rickshaw is meant for only 3 passengers.
4 in all = 3 passengers + driver.

Awaiting more details on the auto show.
It will be in the Hitex or HICC? The last show was in HICC and even though it's huge, it got really crowded on the last day and the organizers had to give away key chains and pens to people to the crowd so that they leave the venue soon.

@pulsar: this one will be held in Hitex Exhibition center, Izzat Nagar. Here we have enough space to accommodate the auto enthusiasts. Hope to see you there.

Last year we had the Ist International Auto Expo in Hitex in Hyderabad,which was very well organised.Deccan Heritage Automobile Association (DHAA) was responsible for displaying some great Vintage cars and motorcycles.
Im in touch with the organisers for this year event too.
@nick..is this a different show? I remember last year too,there were FADA participating in the expo.How are you associated with the event?

@pulsar & hill: Well for the background, as we all know that "Auto Expo" which is organized once in every 2 years in New Delhi is a very bigg show and had taken India to a different level of Auto Shows..

Still various automobile manufacturers had conveyed to SIAM that one "Auto Expo" in two years is not enough for the industry in today’s context, since it has grown significantly in the last 25 years when the Auto Expo was conceptualize for Delhi. Also, at the same time there is a proliferation of private auto shows in various cities were members directly or through dealers are participating.

Keeping these developments in mind, it was decided that there is a need for SIAM to reach out to cities other than Delhi to organize low cost shows for the local markets. The idea is to showcase the existing products of the entire industry under the association banner – reaching out to customers together.

As a first step a Bus and Special Vehicle Show was organized in Bangalore in 2009, which was highly successful from the point of view of attendance of visitors and their profile as well as appreciation of members because of the kind of exposure that they got from the participation.
We are now planning to get FADA and ACMA also together to support this event.

As far my relation is concerned with this event, I work with SIAM as an Asst. Manager in New Delhi.

You can buy the tickets at the venue. I did that last year. Also, I have seen people carrying a few passes as well. If you get them dont have to buy ticket at the venue.
