Getting the Party Started Right – 2009 IAA Kia Media Lounge September 16th, 2009

Europe’s influential motoring media were treated to a sneak preview of the all-new Kia Venga at a special invite-only bash held in the design presentation room of Kia Motors Europe on the eve of the official world premiere of Kia’s latest model for the European market. Around 200 members of the media enjoyed a bevy of cocktail concoctions, a hip DJ spinning pulsating house music, graffiti painting by the Seoul Mates crew of street artists and the full unveiling of the Kia Venga by Chief Design Officer Peter Schreyer.

For a taste of the good time had by all in attendance, check out the photos and video of the event below.

    It looks like Seoul Mates did a great job with those Souls! A recap of their tour around Europe in two Kia Souls can be found on their blog:
