Every year, Columbian Autocar Corporation (CAC), the exclusive distributor of Kia Motors vehicles in the Philippines, seeks vehicle owners nationwide who have manifested their trust of the brand by owning several Kia vehicles, by being a staple in dealership events, or by participating in Kia car clubs.
The chosen Kia Advocates were then treated to a 5-day, all-expenses paid trip to Seoul, South Korea, headquarters of the Korean automotive giant.
This year, Perfecto Corpus, Jr., Roland Joey De Lara, and Jeremy Lapus were recognized as Kia Advocates. Together with one companion each, these Filipino Kia vehicle owners will go on an exclusive, VIP tour of Kia’s Hwaseong Plant and other manufacturing facilities, as well as cultural and historical tours of the city.
Among the three, they own a combined eight units of different Kia models, with some dating back to as far as a 2005.
CAC treated this year’s Kia Advocates to a special send-off dinner at the Marriott Hotel in Resorts World Manila before leaving for their South Korean sojourn.
They were joined by CAC president Ginia R. Domingo, CAC After-Sales Director Apollo R. Rosal and other executives from the After-Sales division.
