India International Trade Fair 2013 (IITF) is all set to begin next month in Delhi from 14th November and will be held till the 27th of November at Pragati Maidan. Theme for this year’s trade fair is inclusive growth and partner country is Japan.
This time around, the first 5 days of IITF (14 to 18 November) will be exclusively reserved for business visitors (from 9:30am to 6:30pm) and general visitors will only be allowed to visit IITF from 19th to 27th November (from 9:30am to 7:00pm).
While business passes are priced at Rs. 400 for single entry and Rs. 1500 for multiple entries between 14 to 19 November, you can register for free at IITF website and avoid paying that amount.
For general visitors, weekday tickets are priced at Rs. 50 for adults and Rs. 30 for children below 12 years. Weekend and holiday tickets are priced at Rs. 80 for adults and Rs. 50 for children below 12 years.
Entry is free for senior citizens and physically differently-abled persons, though senior citizens will have to produce age proof and those traveling with senior citizen or physically differently-abled persons will have to buy ticket at normal rates.
Tickets counters for IITF will be at Gate no. 1 and 2 and will be open from 9:30am to 5:00pm, although Delhi Metro as well Mother Dairy Booths will likely sell IITF tickets as well, like earlier years.
Parking at Bhairaon Road is priced at Rs. 50 for two wheelers, Rs. 125 for cars and Rs. 350 for heavy vehicles.
I would likely be visiting IITF this year as well, since it is a great place to not only see products from various parts of the country and the world, but also to taste the different cuisines available at state pavilions. And of course, for a photography enthusiast like me, it is a perfect place for photography as well.
