13th Manila Auto Salon and 25th Sport Truck Show Opens Tomorrow at SMX Mall of Asia


Two of the most awaited motoring events opens their doors tomorrow: the 13th Manila Auto Salon and 25th Sport Truck Show at the SMX Convention Center by Mall of Asia.

Conceptualized and organized by Tradeshow International, Inc., the 4-day show (November 14 to 17, 2019) is by far the most comprehensive motor show for customized vehicles, performance cars, sport utility vehicles, 4x4s, and 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.

Back-to-back with these two automotive shows, the Tacs Expo (Tactical, Survival and Arms) Expo of Armscor Global Defense, Inc. will also be held. The Tacs Expo will have its usual LTOPF Caravan: a one-stop-shop for firearms ownership licensing and renewal.

“For the first time, three exciting events with complementing target markets are happening all at the same time–the biggest automotive aftermarket show (Manila Auto Salon), the biggest off-road show (Sport Truck Show), and the newest arms and survival show (Tactical, Survival and Arms Expo) all in one venue. So many activities await the car, gun, and survival enthusiasts at the shows–truly a worthwhile trip for everyone,”  says Sophie delos Santos, President of Tradeshow International, Inc.

The major highlight of the motoring event is the competition for 6 Best of Show titles: Custom Car, Tuner Car, and Extreme Custom Car for Manila Auto Salon; and Sport Truck, Sport Utility Vehicle,  and Extreme Sport Truck for the Sport Truck Show.

Current title holders of these Best of Show awards are:
