The Telematics India and South Asia Conference will bring together local and international players such as Volvo, Maruti and Deloitte to discuss how to penetrate this emerging market and capitalize on the potential growth. 100+ attendees executive have already confirmed their place and limited seats remain, at this crucial moment in the Indian telematics landscape.
