Car Awards Group, Inc. (CAGI) Holds First 2017 General Assembly; Lays Out Road Map

The country's top motorcycle motorcycle media guys all in one room.  Yep, that's possible. 

Car Awards Group, Inc. (CAGI), a non-profit, non-stock thirteen-year organization held its first-ever general assembly for its current and aspiring members at Seared, a newly-opened steakhouse restaurant at Ortigas Home Depot in Pasig City. 

The event, with about thirty attendees, served to fire up the institution's road map this year. 

"For 2017, aside from the usual launch, test fest and awards night, we also plan to further raise more public awareness of the group's unique and stringent award-giving process," said newly-elected CAGI president Ronald de los Reyes during their short presentation.

"We want everyone to further realize how esteemed the awards are. The group is also looking forward to reaching and expanding to a much bigger market, "he added. 

According to CAGI, the planned activities for this year's season are: talks in various dealerships, public demonstration tests, fellowship nights and a number of displays in prominent car shows, such as: the Manila International Auto Show, Manila Auto Salon and the Transport Show. 

The affair also served as the venue to start the ball rolling for the much-anticipated quest for the Motorcycle of the Year, which is now on its third year of planning and development. The said endeavor is set to test the mettle of CAGI, which for years has already established a strong reputation as a reputable and credible award-giving body. 

"We believe that it's about time that we also give due recognition to our fellow two-wheeled contemporaries on the road," de los Reyes averred. 

The newly-elected officers were also introduced during the meeting. They are: president- Ronald de los Reyes (Auto Review, Business Mirror and Carmudi Magazine), vice president- Joel Quinto (, corporate secretary- Andy Rodriguez (2ner Magazine), treasurer- Novelyn Quiamco (2ner Magazine) and technical director- Niky Tamayo (Topgear Magazine).
