The anniversary party, hosted by multimedia motoring journalist and host, James Deakin, and Tawag ng Tanghalan hurado and comedienne, K Brosas, was attended by more than 500 guests, including KMPC employees and management, along with esteemed guests from Kawasaki Heavy Industries of Japan. Also present were representatives from SIIX and the JVR Group of Companies, who have helped establish KMPC to be the successful organization it is today.
