Manila gears up for the 27th TransSportShow happening this weekend

May 14, 2018

It all began in 1992 when TradeShow International staged a car show that catered to the Philippine automotive industry. For a few years, this was the norm—exhibiting the newest rides that the then-new automotive industry had to offer.

From there, however, TransSportShow has evolved into one of, if not THE car enthusiasts’ event of the year. It is a venue where car nuts come to see the latest in automotive restoration and customization. Moreover, it is where anyone who has a passion for anything automotive can express their creative side.

This year is no exception as the 27th TransSportShow once again opens its doors from May 17-20, 2018 at the SMX Convention Center by Mall of Asia in Pasay City. Over 100 cars, trucks, SUVs, and other project vehicles will be on display for everyone to admire. It will showcase the talent and skill of the best of the best in the Philippine aftermarket and restoration scene.

This year’s distinguished exhibitors include a slew of tuners, car shops, independent yet passionate individuals, and the like who simply love anything on two and four wheels. Of course, they will all be vying for various titles, including the coveted TransSportShow Cup Competition.

The 27th TransSportShow is presented by TradeShow International in cooperation with Shell Helix Ultra and GMA Network.  While you can get your tickets at the gate, you can avoid the long lines by scoring those passes via SM TicketNet. Either way, this weekend promises to turn up the heat even more at the SMX Convention Center.
