Mobility innovation for humanity’s common good
The Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines, Inc. (CAMPI) has announced the return of the Philippine International Motor Show (PIMS), a highly-anticipated biennial event that brings the country’s biggest auto manufacturers and distributors together to showcase their latest vehicles and cutting-edge technologies, happening this September 15-18. Now in its 8th edition, PIMS 2022 focuses on introducing innovations that will provide safer, more efficient and sustainable mobility to the people with the theme “Mobility + Humanity: Innovating for the Common Good’’.
This year’s motor show returns after a four-year hiatus where the motoring industry players have been constantly adjusting and adapting to the needs of consumers relative to the impacts of the pandemic. Throughout the years, CAMPI has remained steadfast in its commitment to push the automotive industry forward by working with the government and the private sector alike in creating policies, programs, and other activities that not only maximize the industry’s role in the country’s economic growth and development, but also provide mobility solutions that cater to the ever-changing needs of Filipinos.
“Despite the challenges, we are positive that the industry is on its way to revival and recovery as evidenced by the double-digit growth in the past month with an 18.4% increase in vehicle sales year-to-date. Currently, we are almost at 57% of our annual industry target,” said Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines Inc. (CAMPI) President Atty. Rommel Gutierrez.
In line with our road to recovery, we are happy to bring back the much-awaited Philippine International Motor Show, gathering the industry’s biggest car manufacturers to showcase how the latest vehicles and mobility innovations can drive us towards a better and more sustainable future,”added Atty. Gutierrez.
As such, PIMS brings together 13 of the top automotive brands including long-term partners BMW, Foton, Honda, Isuzu, Kia, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Suzuki, and Toyota, as well as new members Chery, Geely, and Hyundai in unveiling their latest and most recent innovations that will drive the future of mobility.
This year, Bank of the Philippines Islands (BPI) will be the exclusive auto financing partner and diamond sponsor of the motor show. Serving as the official mobility partner, Foton will be providing 3 Modernized Jeepneys as shuttle service during the 4-day event. From 10AM to 7PM, the shuttles will ferry guests free of charge between two pickup points, World Trade Center and SMX Convention Center.
Like previous editions of PIMS, the motor show will feature exclusive car launches and car displays in the brand booths and daily presentations of the country’s leading auto manufacturers. In addition, spectators and guests of the motor show can look forward to test driving some of the latest vehicles in the market from participating brands.
There’s a place for aftermarket retail booths where special parts and service appointments will be offered, and several car clubs will hold car meets during the duration of the motor show. Spectators can also participate in a wide variety of family activities prepared to make the 8th edition of PIMS an enjoyable experience for everyone.
