The 12th Manila Auto Salon & 24th Sport Truck Show opens Nov 29

The Philippine automotive aftermarket industry will take center stage as two of the most awaited motoring events will be held this November 29 to December 2, 2018 at the SMX Convention Center by Mall of Asia. The 12th Manila Auto Salon will be held back-to-back with the 24th Sport Truck Show and is being presented by DELIUM Tires Philippines. There will be over 200 show stopping vehicles for display and competition. Conceptualized and organized by the leading motoring events production company TRADESHOW INTERNATIONAL, INC., this event is by far the most comprehensive motor show for customized vehicles, performance cars, sport utility vehicles, 4x4s, off-roaders with a retail section for products and services. Both events will occupy all four trade halls of the convention center so expect to be walking through 9,000 square meters of “show vehicles” and automotive product treats perfect for Christmas shopping for the car lovers.

“MAS and STS have now become iconic brands in the automotive industry specifically in the automotive aftermarket and off-road fields. This is that time of the year when car show enthusiasts brave our “traffic-congested” roads just to see the project vehicles prepared by automotive influencers and will be exhibited for four days at the SMX Convention Center. I hope to use these shows as major tools in supporting advocacies related to restoration excellence, responsible modifications among others.” Says Sophie delos Santos, President of Tradeshow International, Inc.
