Pre-Auto Show Press Reception. KIA Motors set up car and bar at 4:30 in the afternoon for a large (and thirsty) press contingent (300+) fresh from the Javits Center, a half block away, guiding the guests up the block with pavement signage and hostesses posted along the route holding up large inflated numbers counting down from 5 to 1 at the SIR Stage37 entrance. Inside, tinsel wigged waitresses served hors d’ouevres by Olivier Cheng. GO!/C2/AVISTA produced. Lighting by Pulse. Sound by SIR. DJs Andrew & Andrew presided.
