Also popularly known as Numaish, it consists of thousands of stalls spread across 23 acres for 46 days inviting merchants and dealers from all over the world. An average of 1 lakh visitors visiting the Numaish per day is its official kind of event. It started off with 100 stalls and now extends to thousands of stalls ranging from food, clothes, jewellery, carpets, showrooms, brassware, ceramics, entertainment, and games to some amazing rides.
Free Wi-Fi is offered for 45 minutes to everyone to make things easier. The dealers from all around the world including Kashmir, Afghanistan, Turkey, Bengal, and North India set their stalls at Numaish and their products/clothing are not only a shopping retreat but also a visual treat for the visitors.

The Numaish is organised keeping in mind the safety of the visitors, therefore there are hundreds of security guards, and frame metal detectors installed at all the 3 entry gates.
It has three different gates for entry. Such as:
