Ear­lier the event used to take place at Pra­gati Maidan (Delhi). The de­ci­sion has been taken due to the on­go­ing con­struc­tion work at Pra­gati Maidan be­ing held in full swing. AEPC, the or­gan­is­ers of the show, have claimed that there will be no trou­ble due to change in venue. “Expo Mart is a world-class venue and all kinds of ameni­ties are al­ready avail­able there. Noida is also a world-class city and we are of­fer­ing ho­tel stay in Noida, pick and drop to the buy­ers and buy­ing houses (apart from Delhi-NCR), so there will be no in­con­ve­nience to any­one,” in­formed Lalit Thukral, Chair­man, Ex­hi­bi­tion Ad­vi­sory Com­mit­tee (EAC), AEPC. He fur­ther added that UP will be a part­ner state for the event as the State Govern­ment is pro­mot­ing ap­parel man­u­fac­tur­ing in Noida.
