Telematics Mexico 2022 took place a day preceding Expo Seguridad Mexico, Latin America’s largest exhibition of security technologies. We hosted the partner conference after a three-year pause caused by the pandemic.
After such a long break and dramatic events that affected and keep on affecting the world these days, the Wialon team was especially happy to meet partners from the region in person again.
Over the conference, the Wialon experts dived deep into the main events that have taken place in the community’s life in recent years and showed their effect on the further development of the platform. Partners, in turn, spoke about their companies and how Wialon helped them solve various customer problems and expand their businesses.
Denis Grebennikov, Head of Business Development Center, Wialon, delivered an opening speech. He welcomed 175 conference participants and shared the most vivid events that the company faced during the last three years. He dwelled on Wialon’s decision to move its headquarters to Vilnius, Lithuania, to ensure the stable work of the team and the platform.
He also admitted that Mexico is an essential market for Wialon, and the plans for the platform development are closely associated with the home country of the conference. By the way, 55% of North America's 460,000 vehicles have been connected in Mexico.
Head of Business Development Center,
“Despite everything that has happened during the last few years, our partners around the world and here in Mexico did not give up and adapted to the drastically changing circumstances. They not only survived but also achieved significant growth. I’m happy that this region has shown incredible accomplishments. I want to take the opportunity to thank you for your support and contribution. Without you, these results would not be possible.”
Aliaksandr Kuushynau, Head of Wialon, also had his word at Telematics Mexico. He spoke with gratitude to the Wialon partners. In these challenging times, they supported the company not only with kind words but also with hard work connecting more and more vehicles to the platform.
