When it comes to cars, there are two things that people often look for, form and function. But more than just the practicality aspect, it is also important to gain a sense of pleasure and enjoyment from vehicles. Recognizing the key motivations that compel individuals to purchase an automotive vehicle, this year’s Cebu Auto Show (CAS) is gearing up to showcase a presentation that will allow everyone to “Experience the Fun and Function” of a truly topnotch car show.
Last year, CAS managed to attract over 13,000 visitors as it impressively gathered 56 companies and showcased 38 car displays and 11 motorcycle displays. Following this favorable turnout, this year’s CAS, which is now running on its 12th year, is committed to provide Visayan automotive enthusiasts with a comprehensive showcase of the latest innovations from the market along with a series of fun and exciting event highlights.
Aside from giving attendees a chance to bond over their mutual passion for cars, motorcycles, and everything else in between, CAS 2019 is also seen to boost the growth of the Visayan automotive industry. Recently, Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines President Rommel Gutierrez reported that the industry is projecting a 10% growth in volume of sales and the Visayan region is poised to play a crucial role in the attainment of this goal.
In response to this challenge, CAS Co-organizer Dennis Tan enthused, “As we make car ownership easier, affordable, and reasonable at this year’s CAS, we are positive that this will translate to more business opportunities for the sale and service of cars and accessories in the region.” Indeed, the upcoming CAS is expected to drive up much activity for the region’s automotive industry as well as the enthusiasm of car fans and prospective buyers.
