After the difficulte year we have all had, we are very pleased to welcome you to this fifth edition of Viva Technology, taking place from June 16th to June 19th both in-person, at Porte de Versailles in Paris, and online worldwide. We would like to extend ou warmest thanks to our partners for their unflagging support, and for assembling with us a first-of-its-kind program of renowned speakers, major initiatives and groundbreaking innovations. 

After the cancellation of last year's edition, we have been working hard to reinvent VivaTech. We wanted to make this edition a strong marker of the economic recovery at the European level. As we will see at VivaTech - the first hybrid event of this magnitude in the last 18 months - the role of innovation and tech is more decisive than ever in the rebuilding of our economies and in laying the groundwork for a more sustainable society.

VivaTech is recognized throughout the world as a powerful catalyst for business transformation, startup growth and innovation for the common good, for a more responsible and inclusive societu. This year's event reinforces our primary ambition and allows us to contribute to the economic recovery by creating synergies and collaborations and by promoting the digital transformation of companies. 

While becoming a truly hybrid event, VivaTech has managed to renew itself by staying true to its fundamentals : 

  • Inspiration: More than 1,000 sessions designed by our teams and partners, adapting the codes of broadcast television and social media with the help of four reinvented TV studios
  • Discovery: More than 500 tech innovations from around the world displayed in showrooms on our digital platform, 100 of them modelled in 3D and augmented reality
  • Business: More than 1,400 exhibitors, nearly 60% of whom will be present at Porte de Versailles in Paris, in a 25,000 m² space

A new digital experience

This year, VivaTech is developing an engaging and original digital world, which combines a new concept for sessions inspired by the conventions of television and social media: VivaTech is launching its own continuous news channel, VivaTech News, available 24 hours a day, 100% free of charge from the digital platform, but also from VivaTech's website, social networks, etc. Broadcasting live in-studio, in duplex from our conference rooms, and with live reporting from the Porte de Versailles venue with our special correspondents, VivaTech news will be able to stand by and give priority to certain key live moments during the 3 B2B days of Viva Technology. 

VivaTech brings together decision-makers, CMOs and CDOs from all over the world to exchange together and develop business relationships beyond borders. The event will feature a special networking platform driven by data-matching and spontaneous exchanges (creation of online networking rooms as well as text and video chat modules) and an immersive exhibition of the latest innovations (online showrooms displaying more than 500 innovations modeled in 3D / AR). 

This year, the VivaTech digital platform offers personalized support, including themed tours. By logging in, visitors can choose their itinerary online or in-person, as well as the day and time of their visit. They are offered a selection of 30 highlights according to their preferred themes and interests (exhibitors, innovations and conferences of the day). A serendipity feature completes the experience, allowing visitors to be surprised by content
they did not expect to find online.
