More than 120,000 people are expected to troop to the World Trade Center in Pasay City for the Philippine Autocon, the very first automotive exhibit and the biggest car sale in the country.

Slated from July 25 to 28, 2019, the Philippine Autocon is a spectacle organized by that not only car enthusiasts will enjoy, but the entire family too. The event brings a considerable smorgasbord of sights and experiences through a multi-day car and accessories exhibit—complemented by other exciting happenings such as a car auction, entertainment booths, and more.

Launched just last year, is the country’s first online platform to help improve the car ownership experience. Like the app itself, the event presents curated content of only the best and most reputable products, services, and suppliers in one destination.

One of the main highlights of the event is a 40-car show featuring pimped up vehicles by Bumper2Bumper, that will bring in all sorts of decked out vehicles, from sleek sports cars to giant monster trucks. Another thing to look forward to is the huge car sale led by Carmudi and Automart, where 200 cars will be ready to be driven by new owners, and on top of that, 20 cars will also be up for auction, courtesy of HMR.

Another highly anticipated segment of the conference is the show-off of the 10 best Japanese cars from the 60s up to the 90s. Staged in partnership with Visor, these cars are the finalists from the preliminary round in which from hundreds that have entered and nominated their vehicles, only ten were selected to be displayed at the Autocon. To be judged by a 3-man panel, the owner with the most number of online likes and on-site votes, will take home P100,000 in cash, a trophy, and the bragging rights.

“What makes our event unique is that it presents both B2B and B2C opportunities for business owners, marketing and operations executives, enthusiasts, and the general public to learn best practices about, take stock of, discuss, and grow our automotive industry and its attached businesses,” says Anton Ojeda, founder and CEO of

Along with car displays and a car auction are after-market selling booths and exhibits on maintenance and mechanical repair; body repair, paints, and wraps; wheels and tires; and other services and products will be at the venue. Amazing deals and discounts are also up for grabs from brands like Tow & Stow Industries and Line-X.

There will also be a die-cast car display from Ban Kee Trading, a firing range from Airsoft Manila, a 200-m Japan Cup type of track with a racing distance of 200m from The BrickYard, a virtual reality game booth by Tek-Info, a car simulator from Atoy Customs, and other exciting activities for all ages. “We believe that everyone in the family will find something interesting at The Philippine Autocon 2019,” stressed the head. In addition, attendees of the event can have free access to the high-speed Internet provided by PLDT. Petron is also the official fuel partner of the Philippine Autocon Show-off.

The Philippine Autocon will also be a foodie destination. Several food trucks from the Philippine Mobile Food Truck Association are set to satisfy cravings of event-goers as Ser Chef, Soul Food, Mio Gelato, Hungry Chef, Schmidts Hotdogs, Great Burger, Bag Wings, and Q Grill are all expected to deliver the goods.
