About Viva Technology

VivaTech is the largest European event dedicated to startups and technology. The fifth edition took place from June 16 to 19, 2021, in Paris, at the Expo Porte de Versailles, and online. It was an augmented event experience that you could enjoy wherever you were.

From keynote speakers and exhibits to Labs 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 124,000 visitors attended the 2019 edition, and this year builds on that success as startups, business leaders, investors, academics, students and media from around the world descend on Paris and connect online for four adrenaline-filled days. The first three days were dedicated to professionals while on the fourth day, VivaTech opened its doors to the general public.

VivaTech breaks down the traditional barriers between grassroots innovators and global leaders. For the fifth year, our Labs connect startups and established companies for thematic and high-energy open innovation. VivaTech is also a unique opportunity to discover the future by experiencing new products and demonstrations such as autonomous vehicles, connected factories and shopping experiences.

Innovators will meet others with complementary or contrasting ideas across industries. Great things happen when you meet the right people, and it’s no exaggeration to say that the future will emerge from this melting pot of colliding ideas.
