Throughout our publications, we've explored the expansion of the telematics industry and the great potential for this technology in Latin America thanks to the use of IoT tools, GPS tracking, and even Artificial Intelligence. It makes sense that opportunities like these have encouraged countless companies to expand into the region and market their services. So, if you're new to this geographic region, one way to build connections is through networking! Many events and exhibitions are organized each year to bring the main players in the Latin American telematics industry together.
In this post, we will explore the most important events and exhibitions for vendors and consumers of telematics solutions to meet, strengthen business relationships, and take advantage of the enormous value that telematics can bring to their companies.
Telematics industry growth in LATAM
The LATAM region has real-world challenges that provide great opportunities to adopt telematics technology. Issues such as high fuel prices, fuel theft, and supply chain interruptions due to security obstacles open doors for telematics industry players to showcase how they can confront these challenges at exhibitions and events around the region.
For years, the economic environments in the United States and Europe have led to the telematics industry focusing and pioneering technology in these regions. Fortunately, due to lowered costs and increased recognition of marketplace needs, telematics is becoming a much more visible trend here in LATAM, too. In 2023, there will be an ever-increasing number of events that bring together suppliers of telematics solutions, GPS service providers, M2M hardware, and software integrators all under one roof.
To make them easier for you to find, we've organized these events chronologically and by country, so you can find out which ones make the most sense for you to attend.
Exhibitions on security and safety in LATAM
Security and safety are undoubtedly a priority for most industries and companies in Latin America. This is reflected in the large number of events focused on security solutions. The growing presence of GPS tracking solutions, telematics, and the platforms that manage these assets is evident by their focused inclusion in security events.
Visitors to these expositions, trade shows, and others events in Latin America can expect to be exposed to the latest technology in telematics and GPS tracking. This tech includes energy-efficient tracking solutions, wireless Bluetooth sensors, CAN bus data reading, and Big Data analytics, all of which help to create dependable anti-theft systems, vehicle recovery mechanisms, and fuel fraud prevention initiatives that aid in security.
