The Best way to reach here is by Delhi’s heart line ‘DELHI METRO’. Just get a metro from where you are and you have to reach Pragati Maidan metro station to IITF. While you are going to exit from metro station there are several volunteers is always here to guide you.

IITF gate no.10 is the entry gate of fair. Although sometimes you have face rush on Metro. Well, if you want to avoid huge crowds, then I prefer you to reach early in the morning when Trade Fair would open for people. There are also many other ways to reach here but I prefer Delhi Metro because it is the most convenient way.
