Default The 2016 Auto Expo Meetup Thread

Hi guys,

The Auto Expo is scheduled from 5 to 9 February. Tickets booking will soon start. Venue is - India expo mart, greater noida.

Why not have a meetup with all BHPians coming to the event while attending the event also?

We can plan out a date like 6&7 feb is weekend. After finalizing the date, we all can book our respective tickets for same day.

How amazing it would be to have a meetup and attend autoexpo as well along with like-minded BHpians.

What say?

PS - Posted earlier in Noida meetup thread but creating separate thread so that all BHPians from whatever location planning to come may join in.

I'm up for that.
Though, auto expo on a weekend? Not a good idea.

Weekend will have maximum participation from BHPians. Getting a leave from office on friday will not be everyone's cup of tea

Hello bluevolt !! Excellent initiative

I shall be either flying down or flying low (drive down) from Kolkata to report at Delhi on the 4th of February 2016 to attend the Auto Expo.

Majorly travelling for business. I shall be attending the Ancillary (Components) Show which will be held in Pragati Maidan on the 5th (Friday) and 7th (Sunday) of February 2016. Plan to attend the Main Auto Expo in Noida on Saturday, the 6th of February 2016.

Let's catch up for sure !!

That's why I created a new thread. It will be so great to have BHPians who all are coming from all over the country to catchup. Looking forward for the meet eagerly

PS - Let's add a poll on finalizing the dates for the meetup - 5/6/7/8 Feb. I guess 6th Feb(Saturday) will be mostly suitable. 5th & 8th being working days will not let many BHPians attend. 7th is Sunday - venue will be overly crowded. 6th of Feb (Saturday) seems to be ok.

Adding a poll anyways.

3rd February is the media day, while 4th Feb is media + dealers + VIP guests.

The suggested dates in this thread are correct.

Excellent thought. I'm not really sure I'll be here in India that time. If yes, will surely be driving down from Chandigarh for the expo and even better to meet fellow BHPians over there.
Although from past experience, weekend will surely not be a nice time to visit. The crowd is absolutely mammoth and the joy of checking out these new machines turns sour pretty quickly when one is being physically pushed around. Just my two cents.

I am in for the meet on 5/6/7 Feb.

8th Feb is not possible, too far a drive from Gurgaon to Noida after work on a Monday.

Great idea.
I voted for 6th. Will plan my leave accordingly.
Can we all also have some souvenirs like caps on payment for members to be worn that day.

Hey guys,
This thread sounds interesting as even I'm planning of visiting the Auto Expo. Will be planning up my trip from down south soon and am planning of reaching Delhi by 4th. Will be checking out the places to visit in Delhi on 5th and will be visiting the Expo on 6th. If all goes well we'll definitely catch up on 6th

Truly, it will be one heck of a meetup!

PS - By when should we book tickets? In January? Will the tickets sale online remain open by mid-january? Just in case they stop sale due to tickets being sold out or anything like that.

By the way things are going, 6th Feb looks to be the sure shot date for the meetup.

Here is all the info we need about the Expo. The article says
"Free home delivery is offered on bookings of 3 to 10 tickets made before December 31, 2015. Otherwise, home delivery charges of Rs 75 per booking will be levied. Home delivery will not available for tickets booked online after January 25, 2016. Delivery starts from January 15, 2016, or the tickets can be collected from counters located at parking lots near the venue."
