While the Philippines isn’t wanting for great car shows, flying out to an international one should be on every car lover’s bucket list. If you’re up for an automotive adventure in 2017, get your planner out and book a flight for these prime events:

North American International Auto Show. 2017 kicks off with one of the United States’ most premiere car shows, the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). Hosted in Detroit, the US’s top manufacturers bring out their best and brightest plans for the coming year. Catch the NAIAS from January 8 to 22, 2017.

Geneva International Motor Show. A couple of months later, Switzerland will be hosting its own international car show. The Geneva International Motor Show (GIMS) is where many European manufacturers premiere their latest creations, giving you a glimpse at the future of automotive style and engineering. GIMS 2017 will held from March 9 to 19 at Palexpo, Geneva.

Auto Shanghai. Only a fool would miss the biannual Auto Shanghai Show this coming April 21 to 28, 2017. With China being one of the automotive industry’s most dynamic markets, you can bet that manufacturers from all over the region (and beyond) will be strutting their best stuff to ensure they capture your attention – and your imagination.

Goodwood Festival of Speed. When it comes to glamour, few car shows can match the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Held in West Sussex, England, the festival features some of the rarest and most beautiful cars on display, with more than a few eye-catching vintage models on exhibit. With a name like “Festival of Speed”, you can expect a lot of action – there’ll be races and other side events for you to enjoy. Check it out from June 29 to July 2, 2017.
