Either buy tickets or if you have a Business Visitor Admission Email / Pass then that is sufficient to go all day long

BUT I am told that there is too much of a crowd even during business hours.

Let's see - I am crossing my fingers for Saturday Morning as I assume it is going to be one crowded day.

Also I leave Agra @ 6 in the morning and reach Fardidabad around 9:00 - 9:30. So willl reach Pragat Maidan around 10:30 in the morning. Shashank.A & Kpzen should also be there with me. Anyone else wnats to join please co ordinate via PM or here.

NO Family meet this one

I am yet to speak to the Venue Guy - LBM and can only cofirm this once I speak to him.

I really want to make it to this one for which i've also PM'ed Mr Kochar. I'll be calling him to check on the whereabouts about the group during the time that i'll be in the expo or after it for the MEAT if i don't make it to the Expo.

I also liked the idea of all of us turning on the headlights of our cars to lighten the spirit of the MEAT. Cheers!!

The FOG situation is really bad here around Delhi. I had to leave today morning for delhi and I am informed that the highway is messed up big time.

Now I plan to leave early morning tommorrow so I can visit the expo around 10 - 11. BUT if fog is high I wil have to give it a miss. In that case if a meet is happening then we will definetely meet each other wherever it is happening !!

So many confusions this time First the Venue, then the confirmations, then this FOG issue.

I have spoke to quite a few people since morning regarding the meet tommorrow.

Not too many people interested due to fog issues.

Also no Venue is there.

So if one happens then it will be purely last minute else we will have one in a few days - maybe next weekend !

Please feel free to organise a meet tommorrow if anyone wants to. I am in Delhi tommorrow and will be free so if one is happening then I am probably going to show up

There is the fog that can delay arrival in Delhi. The temp today is perhaps the lowest of the season. However, what can raise temperature and cause even more delays is the traffic situation around Pragati Maidan. As usual and nothing new. In fact even worse because of CP mess and the many attractions at the Expo itself.

Fog here is totally bad right now. So looks very bleak for me to leave Agra early tommorrow morning. It's probably going to be 10 - 11 now and will get in Delhi around 3 - 4. I think I will have to give the Expo a miss this year !!

Very sad to hear that you would not be able to make to the expo this year. I'm off to the expo soon after this post. I might meet samtheleo there and maybe a couple of more BHPians . I know that going on Metro makes lot of sense as it's just 5 mins walk from my home but being a car lover i just cannot help driving to pragati maidan and paying a heavy parking fee of Rs 75

@ Wandernomad- The meet got cancelled.

I just got back from the Expo. Met samtheleo and sam kapasi at the expo. I'm planning to start a thread with all the pics and description.
