With the growing riding communities in the country, Honda Philippines Inc. found the best way to provide a venue where riders and enthusiasts experience the joy of riding, and that was to hold a Riders Convention for them. The Honda Riders Convention – Luzon Leg was held at the Tagaytay International Convention Center and was attended by 3,000 Honda riders and motorcycle enthusiasts in more than 50 clubs for a day of fun-filled activities that fuels camaraderie and support.
The Honda Riders Convention is one of the many activities that Honda develops to show their appreciation to its loyal riders. “We consider our riders as our main source of inspiration when designing and innovating new features for our motorcycles. That is why we’d like to give back to these communities by inviting them to a fun-filled event that combines camaraderie, support, passion, and commitment,” says their Asst. Vice President for Sales & Marketing & Supply Chain Management, Mr. Jomel Jerezo.
One of the main highlights of the event was the showcasing of Honda’s Automatic motorcycle models and Neo Sports Big Bikes, models that suit the commuting needs of students, young professionals, and serious sports riders.
Moreover, riders also had the opportunity to participate in various activities geared towards their interests as motorcycle enthusiasts, such as the test ride activity, the Riders Skills Challenge and Motor Show. To add excitement, HPI aims to honor the riders’ special skills and talents through the “Riders Got Talent” competition and the “Miss Honda Riders Con 2019” segment.
There are also new additions to this year’s convention, including a Club Meet-up, Social Media Photo Contest, YFF Rider Image Contest. Brotherhood Wall, Trade Partners Selling, Relaxation with Pampering Stations, Teambuilding sessions, Safety Riding Seminar in HSDC booths, and Farthest & Biggest Delegation.
To cap off the day, various clubs were recognized for their various achievements with the awarding ceremony. Finally, they were also serenaded by the OPM band Hale to culminate the event.
With the goal to reach more Filipinos throughout the year, Honda will also hold a leg of the Riders Convention in Visayas and Mindanao in the upcoming months.
According to the company, unique attitude and style, is what Honda provides for its riders to fit their lifestyle and their own unique personality.
