Less Space in 2019 Trade Fair
The 2019 trade fair will be organized at Pragati Maidan in 20% of the space as compared to last years. Very few square meters of space would be available for Vyapar Mela due to the ongoing construction work. A world-class Integrated exhibition cum convention center (IECC) is being built inside the Pragati Maidan campus. This building will be completed in two years in a budget of 2600 crore. It would be pretty good for the visitors and the organizers. The currently crowded venue will be having a lot of space and many new Pandals would be made here.
Due to construction, less number of exhibitors will participate in this event. Crowd control would be the main task for ITPO management. In 2016, around 15 lacs of people attended this 14-day event. In 2019 ITPO would try the reduce the visitors number up to 5 lac. This time the main focus is on the sale of online tickets through bookmyshow and no ticket sale on Pragati Maidan ticket counters. It is done to ensure that the venue do not have too much crowd. It helps in managing the crowd and keeping it safe. Earlier, the crowd was concentrated on the ticket counter and hence it used to be too crowded at the venue with many queues being created.

One temporary police station will be made inside the complex and 400 volunteers of civil defense are in the security of visitors along with security personals.
