Due to the upcoming international trade exhibition scheduled at the Expo Centre in Greater Noida, schools in Noida will experience a temporary closure on September 21st and September 22nd after 2pm. Circulars have been issued by the schools to notify parents of this closure. Some schools have indicated their intention to conduct online classes during this period and will administer exams in a virtual format. The Uttar Pradesh government has undertaken significant measures to ensure the success of the trade fair.
It's important to note that the five-day trade show includes the weekend of September 23rd and 24th, which means that schools will technically remain closed for three weekdays: September 21st, 22nd, and 25th. The international trade exhibition at the India Expo Centre and Mart in Greater Noida will be inaugurated by President Droupadi Murmu. Seventeen government departments are expected to set up stalls at the event.
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has expressed that the international trade show will serve as a platform to introduce the world to the rich crafts, cuisine, and culture of Uttar Pradesh. According to the official website of the event, more than 500,000 visitors, including international attendees, are anticipated to attend the trade exhibition.
"It will showcase ODOP (One District One Product), GI-Tag products, and a whole lot of other products that are created and manufactured across Uttar Pradesh and that have immense potential to be marketed globally," the text on the website said.
The exhibition is set to encompass an expansive area of over 50,000 square meters. As per the event's official website, the trade exhibition will have business hours from 11 am to 3 pm, and the public hours will be from 3 pm to 8 pm.
