Telematics Update’s Telematics for Fleet Management Conference hits 93% Capacity, Limited Passes Remain

Although the use of telematics technology in the fleet segment is established, telematics companies are still chasing mass adoption. Although in its 10th year, the strong delegation of 160+ senior executives confirmed to attend the annual Telematics for Fleet Management Conference reflects that further penetration is still a challenge the industry is facing. The conference will provide a current market update to identify niche areas where breakthrough technology can be developed. It will also explore how to devise new solutions to rival those currently seen as industry leaders– all in the name of achieving mass uptake. 

Mike Sena, President of Michael L. Sena Consulting AB, is chairman for the conference and has stressed how important he thinks this conference is for fleet telematics providers in achieving their business goals. “At the event, top speakers from TNT Express, SCANIA and Iron Mountain will ensure you’re equipped with the right expertise to devise and implement updated and new services. Plus, this year’s delegate list demonstrates an array of expertise and brand new companies from outside the traditional fleet telematics sphere, so it really is primed for you to build those golden partnerships that will take your fleet telematics efforts to the next level”.

The delegation already includes Daimler Fleetboard, Deutsche Telekom, Fleetmatics, Shell, TomTom, Zurich, Intel and Iron Mountain. A sample of the conference attendees can be found on the website (, demonstrating how companies that traditionally have not been involved in the fleet space could be planning to enter the market providing a whole new realm of opportunity for partnerships, as well as the opportunity to connect with more established fleet players. As attested by Sena “If your company is looking to grow in this space over the next 12 months, I really can’t recommend a better place to be than Amsterdam in March.”

With limited passes remaining, Telematics Update has announced that those wishing to attend must register as soon as possible in order to secure a place. Registration for one of the final passes can be made via the website:
