There's sure to be something for everyone—from customized off-roaders to restored classics and JDM vehicles, as well as automotive products and accessories.
Tradeshow International Inc. president Sophie delos Santos says that this year's show will serves as the go-to venue for the latest in car personalization and consumer trends. "The Philippine automotive aftermarket industry players must take advantage of this once-a-year spectacle if they want to be in tune with what’s in demand by car and sport truck enthusiasts, and see these actual products on the vehicles from the most popular to the more expensive bespoke ones."
Delos Santos added that the event is aimed at empowering the "new breed" of enthusiasts, who are more aware than ever thanks to the rise of technology and social media. "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."
