GREATER NOIDA: The curtains came down on the 12th edition of India’s flagship automobile show, Auto Expo, here today with the industry hoping that positivity around the spectacle will spark a revival in demand after a prolonged slump in sales.
The week-long show witnessed 70 unveilings, of which 26 were global models. A total of 5.61 lakh people visited the show, with 90,000 attending on the last day.
The previous edition of the expo held at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi in 2012, attracted 7 lakh people.
