The country's longest running automotive show is back on its 22th year and will once again feature unique and innovative show cars at the SMX Convention Center in the SM Mall of Asia grounds, Pasay City. The 2013 Trans Sport Show (TSS) will be running from May 30 up until June 2, 2013.
“The uniqueness of the Trans Sport Show lies in its deep connections with the exhibitors, the visitors and the competitors,” observes Andy Dysangco, a well-known car enthusiast and vintage car collector. “Other shows are for brands and cars people already see in the dealer showrooms. At the Trans Sport Show what the visitor sees are cars borne out of creativity, care and attention to detail.”
For over two decades, the Trans Sport Show has served as an avenue for the automotive industry by creating niches to which the mainstream car-makers can pick up new ideas. It also served as a powerful brand in the realm of competitions, auto restoration, aftermarket products, and car club networking.
“It always starts with an inspiration,” Mr. Dysangco, who is also a frequent judge at the event’s international-standard vehicle competitions. “The originality and creativity of others drives those who witness it to follow suit and create and modify on their own.”
For the 22nd running of the show, Phoenix Petroleum continues its partnership as the main sponsor, and will feature the 2nd Philippine Nostalgic Motor Show—a perfect segue to the launch of 'Driving Generations,' Trans Sports Show’s newest slogan.
“Driving Generations is perfect platform for the enthusiast to understand why the car crazy Filipinos love their cars, no matter what age or genre they come from,” explains Tradeshow International President, Sophie de los Santos.
