TransSportShow Opens May 23rd at SMX

The car show that spans generations of car enthusiasts is back on May 23-26, 2019 at the SMX Convention Center near the SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City. The 2019 TransSportShow is being presented by Phoenix Pulse Technology and is anticipated to be another grand exhibition of restored and customized show cars by the leading automotive shops in the country.

2017 McLaren 570S was the 2018 Best of Show winner

Now on its 28th year, the TransSportShow remains to be the longest running car show in the country today. It is organized by Tradeshow International, Inc. (TSI), 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”, says TSI president Sophie delos Santos. “We have not missed a year despite the several economic crises that the country has suffered. TransSportShow has endured the test of time.”

Shelby Cobra captured the 2018 Reserve Best of Show Nostalgic Award

TSI cited three reasons why as real car enthusiast should not miss the 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% 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, which was featured in the 2019 TransSportShow 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 vehicle as well as affiliated products and services for the owner/driver/enthusiast.

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 . There will be the much awaited Miss TransSportShow contest featuring 12 pre-selected finalists who will be gracing the ribbon-cutting ceremony on opening day on May 23, 2019 at 10:30 AM.
