Auto Expo 2023 History
The Auto Expo was first held in 1986 at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi, after being conceived in 1985. The nine-day show was a game-changer and a platform for technological transfers. The purpose of the event was to demonstrate how the Indian automotive sector was absorbing new technology and fostering local R&D to adopt these technologies to the harsh Indian environment.
The event became stronger over time, and by 2006, it had begun to witness new debuts, concept vehicles, trade talks, and a large international presence. It received accreditation from the Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d’Automobiles (OICA) in 2008, confirming its status as one of the world’s most prestigious car shows. The Auto Expo is now widely anticipated by both trade and fans for the opportunities it provides.
