Addressing the gathering, Deep Kapuria, Past President, ACMA, said that the auto components industry is recognized as a leading quality-oriented industry and that over the years, the value-add in components has risen. On display at the Show will be over 500+ new technologies and over 5000 products. Describing the components sector as a “sunrise” sector, he said the sector has tremendous potential.
Describing it as a ‘unique and special show’, Chandrajit Banerjee, CII's Director General, said that this is the first time that the show has been split into two- components and motor show – as the growth in the magnitude of the Show warranted it.
While the Components Show will take place from 6-9 February in Pragati Maidan, New Delhi, the Motor Show will take place from 7-11 February at Greater Noida, Delhi-NCR. The expected footfalls in the Motor Show is about 1 lakh per day, and about 10,000 per day in the components show, which is primarily a B2B show.
The Show, he elaborated, is an excellent opportunity for business visitors to grow their business. Answering questions on whether going forward the Show will be held in two venues, Mr Kapuria, Mr Kirloskar and Mr Banerjee said that the idea was to have a large Show in one venue and that it was only space constraints that necessitated this move this time.
