VivaTech is the world’s rendezvous for startups and leaders to celebrate innovation. It takes place at Porte de Versailles, Paris on 24–26 May 2018.
From top speakers and exhibitions to open innovation and live experiences, VivaTech is a celebration of today’s innovations and tomorrow’s possibilities for everyone who believes in the power of technology to transform business and society.
More than 68,000 visitors attended the 2017 edition, and this year builds on that success as startups, business leaders, investors, academics, students, and media from around the world descend on Paris for three packed days. The first two days are dedicated to professionals when the third day opens its door to the general public.
VivaTech breaks down the traditional barriers between grassroots innovators and global leaders. For the third year running, our Labs concept puts startups and established companies in the same room for themed, high-energy open innovation. VivaTech is also a unique opportunity to preview the future by experiencing new products and demos such as autonomous vehicles, connected factories and shopping experiences.
Stakeholders of innovation will bump into others with complementary or contrasting ideas in every business sector. Great things happen when you meet the right people, and it’s no exaggeration to say the future will emerge from this melting pot of colliding ideas.
