Pilipinas SHELL solidifies its support to the local biking community through the Shell Bike Fair 2018 and its eventful culmination held at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) in Pasay City last Saturday, September 22.

The event that started in Baguio City in July, brought together riders, bike enthusiasts and some of the well-recognized bike clubs and associations from all over the country to celebrate and promote road safety, responsible biking as well as motor tourism.

Bearing the tag line of ” Together We Ride Stronger”, Shell Bike Fair is one of the most awaited biking event here in the Philippines. The local biking community has grown exponentially as more and more riders consider two-wheeled vehicles as a more practical and convenient mode of transportation. Based on the latest statistics from LTO, the number of registered motor vehicles in the Philippines has grown to 10.5 million as of 2017.

“This day is really to express how grateful we are for the support that we received from the Filipino biking community,” said Shell V-Power Brand Manager, Mark Malabanan during the media conference.

“As our theme says, together we ride stronger. We are honored to be chosen as their partner on the road, being there with them through the years. And, as we have for more than a hundred years, Pilipinas Shell continues to strive to make life’s journeys better for all motorists.”

Joining Mark Malabanan to answer questions from the media before the festivities were: Pilipinas Shell Head of Marketing Anthony Simon Wee and Shell Advance Brand Manager Lorrie Ramirez.

The Shell Bike Fair 2018 culminating event featured the special appearances of celebrity guests Daiana Menezes, Yam Concepcion and Phoebe Walker as well as performances from Rico Blanco, Rocksteddy and other local acts.
