TransSportShow Ends today at the SMX Convention Center
The car show that spans generations of car enthusiasts is back on May 23-26 at the SMX Convention Center by Mall of Asia. The annual TransSportShow is being presented this year by Phoenix Pulse Technology for Enhanced Power and Acceleration, and is anticipated to be another grand exhibition of restored and customized show cars by the leading automotive shops in the country.
TransSportShow is now on its 28th year and remains to be the longest running car show in the country today, making it an iconic brand in the Philippine automotive industry. The show is organized by Tradeshow International, Inc. (TSI), one of the oldest exhibition management and events companies here which also organizes the Manila Auto Salon and the Sport Truck Show.
“TransSportShow has lasted this long mainly because we value the goals and objectives of the key players in the project,” Sophie delos Santos says. She stresses the importance of ensuring that exhibitors and sponsors meet their objectives in joining the show, providing them with the target market – quality against quantity. Equally important is to ensure that the show is worth the visitors’ time and money, and that the suppliers provide the professional service needed to run the show. Last but not the least, Tradeshow International, Inc. as the organizer, must strike a balance between the event’s continued financial viability and its passion to stage a real car enthusiasts’ show every year. “We have not missed a year despite the several economic crises that the country has suffered. TransSportShow has endured,” she added.
There are three good reasons why real car enthusiasts should not miss the 28th TransSportShow. 1) The show never fails to amaze visitors with a line up of over 100 project vehicles competing for the much coveted TransSportShow Cup Best of Show Award. The show floor literally turns into a beauty pageant of vehicles, 95 percent of which will be displayed for the first time. Last year’s Best of Show winner for the Contemporary class was Import Hook-Up’s 2017 Mclaren 570S (featured in the poster). The Best of Show winner for the Nostalgic class was a 1998 Toyota Corolla by Vonetix Radical Creations. Alex Car Restoration bagged the Reserve Best of Show Nostalgic award for its Shelby Cobra. 2) The show is also a trade and retail exhibition of what’s new and popular in the automotive aftermarket industry. There will be rows and rows of booths to buy accessories from, for one’s car, as well as affiliated products and services for the owner/driver. 3) The show will have special promotional events to ensure a fun-filled and exciting car show experience for everyone. These are product launches, raffles, demonstrations, competitions .
The 28th TransSportShow opens at 10 am and ends at 9 pm today.
