The India Expo Mart Limited
(IEML) has been given a massive makeover prior to the forthcoming Auto Expo -
The Motor Show 2016. Two additional large halls have been created in the venue
with carpet areas of 25000 sqms and 12240 sqms respectively. The venue
previously had only eight permanent halls measuring 27,648 sqms. The remaining participants had to be
accommodated in temporary hangers measuring 32,400 sqms.
IEML has now constructed Hall
9-12 and 14-15 as permanent halls complete with air conditioning and adequate
power supply cabling. Apart from the
concrete flooring with trenches for utilities, the new halls have brick walls
up to six meters high where insulated PUFF sheets have been used which will
help in maintaining the temperature of the halls irrespective of the season.
Unlike the old halls which have 5.3 meters clear height, the new halls have a
minimum of 10 meter side height and 13 meters for the centre of the halls. In fact the Hall 12 has a side height of 15
meters and 18 meters height at the centres.
This gives a clear height below the AC ducts of 9.5 metres in Halls
9,10,11,14 & 15 and Hall 12 will have a clear height after the AC duct
around 14.5 meters, thus allowing a lot of breathing space for the visitors and
exhibitors alike. This makes the new halls international class and also gives a
lot of flexibility for display. As a
result of these new constructions, the total permanent expo area has gone up by
The newly constructed halls
have provisions for 25 MW of captive power supply, if required. All the halls
in the venue are now connected with uninterrupted power supplied through
gensets. The venue is also slated to have 2 pre-designated parking lots, P1 and
P2, with capacity of over 10,000 cars/bikes. The parking area would also have
the ticket counters. The venue would
allow cost free entry and wheel chair facility for differently-abled people.

records in 2014. This time it is expected to be even bigger and better with
The venue would witness high
level security. Multiple levels of security would be provided in the form of
CISF, private security guards and local police. 24/7 CCTV surveillance would be
provided within and around the venue with more than 180 cameras. The local
police would have PCRs stationed in and around the venue to ensure smooth flow
of events. Other necessary security equipment like under body vehicle scanners
and sniffer dogs would also strengthen the security at the venue. The venue is
also well-equipped to tackle all kinds of fire hazards.
