In this year JPA invited attendees from maintenance companies for the press-in machine and trading companies in addition to the regular JPA members. Therefore we could have a good opportunity to announce IPA activities for wider field people.

Some of attendees said, "We are very impressed to the expansion of the press-in method in the world." and "I would like to keep getting the latest information." The lecture successfully ended.
