Interior and Exterior Expo – Coverage

We decided to cover the expo on a Saturday evening. This way we could beat the Sunday crowd and also have the day for ourselves. The exhibition or expo was held at Rani Meyyammai Hall, Chennai. Getting there was not an issue and there was plenty of car park available as well.

The best part to start the show was that the entry was free! This was the third show in less than 2 months at Chennai , but the first one where the entrance was free. We were glad that people were not asked to pay to attend a show which is full of advertisements, brochures and flyers. Somehow I relate this to Indians (some) using a set top box or a DTH service, paying for it and ending up watching ads!

 Moving on, the entrance was a breeze and the quality of stalls located near the entrance was pretty good. We just walked through trying to see if some stall is different from the ones which we saw in the previous two shows. Unfortunately this was not the case. Most of the categories were repeated from the previous shows.

As we walked by, we noticed that the quality of stalls were just coming down. Perhaps this was an indicator of the reason so as to why there was no entrance fee in the first place.

We ran into some Non profit organizations like Green Peace and Cancer Institute. These were a nice thing to note and see (although not relevant to the show).

The last leg of the show was completely irrelevant. There were stalls showing all kinds of stuff like clothes, wrist watches , Corporate club memberships and what not.

This last journey really hastened our exit from the show. We also had to walk through a myriad of maze, going up and down. Perhaps in this aspect, Chennai trade centre is very well organized.

We will post some pictures from this show in the next post.

have a great Sunday!
