It's a good initiative. Hope the offroaders give it due support and turn out in good numbers like they do for India Bike Week.

Default 2016 India 4x4 Week to kick start from 22 July in Goa

The 2016 India 4x4 week will be organized from 22nd July to 24th July 2016 in Dona Paula, Goa. This will be the inaugural edition of the 4x4 convention, which is being organized by Delhi-based Cougar Motorsport Pvt. Ltd.

The first edition of the India 4x4 week will house displays from manufacturers like Land Rover and Isuzu. Several off-road equipment suppliers will also be showcasing their equipment and accessories.

A proving ground area has been laid out at the venue, where visitors can get an idea of the potential of off-road vehicles like the Land Rover Discover Sport and Isuzu vehicles like the 4x4 Single Cab Pickup Truck and the D-Max V-Cross.

The visitors will also be given an opportunity to test their own vehicles' off-road abilities. For this, the organizers have made three different tracks with varying levels of off-road difficulty: SUV, moderate and extreme off-road.

Knowledge sharing, training and certifications sessions will also be held for registered participants, where off-roading experts like Sumeer Tandon, Arkaprava Datta, Tejas Kothari (BHPian Tejas@perioimpl) and David Metcalfe will be shedding light upon topics like Suspension & Articulation, Differential Lockers, Offroad Driving Tips, Hi-Lift Jacks, Winching and other interesting and challenging aspects of 4X4 and off-roading.

12 rare 4WD vehicles from around the country will also be exhibited at the venue. These include classic Range Rovers, a 1948 Dodge Power Wagon, a FJ40 Land Cruiser, Land Rover series vehicles such as the Land Rover Series 2A, Defender and 110.

Interestingly, 12 Prologue Special Stages of the Force Gurkha RFC India 2016 will also take place at the India 4x4 Week. Force Gurkha RFC is the Indian edition of the famous Rainforest Challenge of Malaysia. The Rainforest Challenge is counted among the ten toughest motor races in the world.

Further details about the event can be found at the official website.
