Kickstarting car shows once again

Car aficionados can once again rejoice as the Philippines’ top custom and classic car shows return this year. Staged as a three-in-one show, the Trans Sport Show, the Manila Auto Salon, and the Sport Truck Show will be combined to become one major event, showcasing the best wheels the country has to offer. The event will be held from today until November 14 at the SMX Convention Center at the SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City. The show is open from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. daily. Ticket prices are P200 for adults with unlimited entry.

Organized by Tradeshow International Inc., this three-in-one show is the first public automotive event to be held more than a year after the quarantine measures were put in place. Rest assured that the organizers have set strict health and safety measures.

Visitors can purchase prepaid and dated tickets with contact tracing information. There will also be wider visitor aisles to comply with current IATF regulations on social distancing. The number of people allowed inside the venue will be controlled as well. As with the new normal, face mask and face shields will be required for all visitors.

Those interested in dropping by must bring their vaccination card as part of the requirements. They must prepare to fill up a contact tracing form upon entry into the SMX Convention Center. Face masks and face shields must be worn at all times. Minors must be accompanied by adults.

Despite these restrictions, the organizers aim to bring the same enjoyable car show experience to both those new to the event and long-time faithful visitors. For more information, visit their site at
