This show is going to be cancelled as they have received just 2 confirmations from Auto dealers to put up in their stalls.
Also Heritage Motorclub doesnt have any local presence in hyderabad and they dont have any recourse to Vintage cars and motorcycles.Unless they have tied up withany local clubs.
Its a no show as far as I know.
The mother of the Auto Expo will happen at the 2nd Hyderabad Internation Auto Show in HICC from July 22-25 2010.Watch out for this.

Really? What a shame indeed. An event being organized by CII, and no takers.. Reflects poorly on the efforts that would have gone in selling the event!!

Commercial success but a technical failure ... with Suryakiran falling over a residential property and demise of 2 pilots.

we have seen few so called Auto shows in Bangalore which had nothing to offer. other than Delhi Auto Expo we have nothing interesting even in Metro cities. I find small shows organized by college students are better than this.

Default Invites available

It will be quite unfortunate if it is a no-show as per Hillram's information. They have got the CM to inaugurate the expo, so quite surprised that they are not more organised.

Separately, I have received 5 invites to the Auto ShowSouth - valid for 13, 14, 15 and 16 May between 12 to 8:30pm. I also have an invite to the inaugural ceremony on May 14 at 10:30 pm. Anyone interested, ping me and you can collect them from me at Begumpet.

Cheers,
Spyder

Yeah but sounds lame -- looks like there might be a few stalls only with stuff like Etios which was already covered in the Delhi expo.

Oh yeah there already exists a thread, but look below/above. Spyder has commented on both the threads and I did not know on which I posted or was tracking.
