The Philippine automotive aftermarket industry will once again be in the limelight as two of the most awaited motoring events take center stage this November 30 to December 3, 2017 at the SMX Convention Center by Mall of Asia. The 11th Manila Auto Salon together with the 23rd Sport Truck Show will showcase over 200 show-prepped vehicles for display and competition. Conceptualized and organized by the leading motoring events production company TRADESHOW INTERNATIONAL, INC., this event is by far the most comprehensive motor show for customized vehicles, performance cars, sport utility vehicles, 4x4s, off-roaders with a retail section for products and services. Both events will occupy all four trade halls of the convention center so expect to be walking through 9,000 square meters of “show vehicles” and automotive product “shopping treats.

“Motor shows produced by Tradeshow International, Inc. or TSI are not only entertaining and experiential but also serve as the best venue for the latest in vehicle customization and automotive consumer trends.

“The Manila Auto Salon and Sport Truck Show remain to be strong influencers to the new breed of automotive consumers who are more empowered because of social media and technology. These shows serve as an interactive platform for these browsers who take to the internet first to research for what’s in the market but still need to be surprised with what is not available online— and that is looking to see what the automotive aftermarket leaders will launch at the show.” adds delos Santos.
