Trans Sport Show, the country's longest-running car show, is now on its 22nd year. And for the 2013 staging of the show, its organizer has decided to dedicate it to the generations of motoring enthusiasts who have passed through the show's doors through the years.
"We have met a lot of fathers and sons, whole families, in fact, through the years, who had a steady diet of the Trans Sport Show," said Tradeshow International president Sophie de los Santos. "It was the inspiration for the show's new slogan. When we started seeing dads with their L-type Lancers, passionately staring at restored examples with their sons who now drive the latest-generation cars, we knew that this was what really represented the show."
"Driving Generations" is the show's slogan for 2013, and it supposedly embodies the brand's market position. Besides being a show for car enthusiasts--or a gathering of the best and most creative minds in automotive sound, body, tuning, and paint engineering--the Trans Sport Show "creates endearing memories for those who have visited and participated in the event." It also remains to be the only automotive exhibition that caters to a most diverse car-loving audience, "an institution and a powerful brand as far as car competitions, auto restoration, aftermarket products, and car-club networking are concerned."
This year's Trans Sport Show will coincide with the 2nd Philippine Nostalgic Motor Show. Event highlights during the show's four-day run will include the Phoneix Trans Sport Show Cup competition; the 50th Anniversary of the Porsche 911 with an evolution display by Porsche Club Philippines; the 60th Anniversary of the Chevrolet Corvette with an evolution display by the Manila Sports Car Club; the Search for the 2013 Ms. Trans Sport Show; the Ms. Petrol Competition and Fashion Show; and daily raffles.
The 22nd Trans Sport Show will be held at the SMX Convention Center from May 30 to June 2, with ticket prices at P100 for adults, P80 for senior citizens, and P50 for children aged three to 12.
