Trade Fair is organised in Delhi every year during the month of November. It is almost that time of the year, people have marked their calendar for this mega event. After the completion of IITF 2017, it was expected that Trade Fair 2018 venue will be some place in Noida. However, it is a good news for the people of Delhi that it will be organised in Pragati Maidan. After the official announcement by the organising authorities, Pragati Maidan is confirmed as IITF venue.
The Trade fair will be quite smaller than every year, considering the construction happening at the venue. Only 20% of area will be available and hence there will be 800 participants instead of 5000 – 6500 participants. Per day footfall limit would be 25000, to ensure easy management.
The focus country and partner countries would be our neighbours, Nepal and Afghanistan respectively. Pakistan would not be participating, continuing with its feat. The Trade Fair 2018 tickets will be available online and offline. You can buy tickets from 66 metro stations, ticket counter and some online website as well. The tickets are very well in demand, hence booking them on time is very important.
This year, the theme of the fair is Enterprises from Rural India. Some days are reserved for
Business visitors and for rest of days, it is open for general public. Ticket for both categories are different and their price also differs by a good margin. This arrangement is kept in place to ensure that business does not ge hindered by the general public. The place is quite crowded during non business visitor hours, not an ideal scenario for big business deals.
