At the core of Wialon lies a dynamic community, a partner network that spans the world. Together with our partners, we host the Wialon IoT zones at countless expos, meet at our own global partner conference, Telematics, and engage in various industry events.

Now, we are embarking on something completely different. On August 21–27, the Wialon team and 15 of our partners are climbing to the peak of Mount Rinjani in Indonesia. This expedition not only promises a breathtaking adventure but also embodies the spirit of the Wialon community — mutual support, growth, and success.

Read on to explore the exciting path that awaits our participants.

The idea behind the Wialon Challenge

The Wialon community is the largest gathering of telematics and IoT experts, uniting over 2,400 partner companies, 700 hardware manufacturers, and hundreds of developers of Wialon-based solutions from 150 countries. For us, the community is invaluable, and we strongly believe that partnerships thrive not solely through industry ties, but also through shared experiences and achievements. This is precisely why we've chosen to host this unique event.

“We're bringing together 15 visionary partners who consistently show outstanding performance
in the annual Wialon Top Partners ranking. They're not only important allies of Wialon, but also influential thought leaders of the telematics and IoT community. As we gather for this pivotal Wialon partner event in Indonesia, we anticipate it will mark a significant milestone in our mutual journey and strengthen the bonds even more.”‎

Meet the adventurers

15 Wialon partners from 12 different countries have traveled 121,162 kilometers — equivalent to three full lengths of the equator — to reach Indonesia and climb to the top of the Rinjani volcano. From hiking experts to newcomers seeking an adrenaline rush, the Wialon Challenge 2023 team is diverse indeed.
