A meeting of telematics experts: Soloplan Telematics Day

On the 24.10.2013, the first Soloplan Telematics Day opened its doors in Katowice.

Organised by Soloplan Polska Sp. z o.o. Sp.k., the first in-house exhibition of telematics was held in Katowice on the 24th of October 2013. The sustainable theme of this event is to hold an information event, in the form of an in-house exhibition in Poland, where attendees get a better overview of the telematics offering in combination with the logistics software from Soloplan.

The Soloplan Telematics Day was supported by the press through a media sponsorship with Truck & Business.

Six exhibitors, including Transics, presented their products in the field of logistics software and telematics to over 60 attendees in Katowice. Not only the exhibitors and their products, but also expert lectures and discussions contributed to a successful event.

Hosting such an exhibition is pioneering work of Soloplan Polska Sp. z o.o. Sp.k., as the number of comparable offerings inside Poland is relatively small. Hence the considerable enthusiasm from the participants who, without exception, had only positives to report from the Soloplan Telematics Day. „We would like to thank you very much for inviting us to yesterday’s meeting and your hospitality”, says Ms Edelmüller-Generaux, CEO of BATIM and common customer Transics and Soloplan.

As a result of the very positive feedback from the first event and also requests from exhibitors who were not present this time, the Soloplan Telematics Day will take place again in October 2014.
