Viva Technology, also known as VivaTech, returns to Paris from 15 to 18 June. An event not to be missed for fans of new technologies, especially since this year the show reopens its doors to the general public.
It’s a comeback that brings hope to the tech world, which is picking up again after two years of the pandemic, with several projects slowing down. The Viva Technology show will be held for the 6th time, with three days open to professionals from June 15 to 17, with a day dedicated to the general public scheduled for Saturday, June 18 in Hall 1 at the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles. But the event is also available for free on the digital platform hosted by VivaTech on the web.
spacious living room of 45,000 m2
After two years in a pandemic, this 2022 edition intends to reunite with the original concept of this major technical meeting. “We can offer a 45,000 m2 scaleless show to showcase the value of new technologies for our future ten, twenty, thirty years from now,” Julie Ranty, CEO, CNEWS announcement. Manager of Viva Technology.
If the digital-focused version was created last year and is being kept for this 6th edition, the organizers wanted to highlight the return of a very real meeting to welcome visitors. “Content and conferences will be available to everyone in a digital version, but we found that it could not convey as much power and emotion,” she analyzes. The heart of the event today remains face to face. There is no substitute for physical encounters, whether it be doing business or encountering individuals or entities. The beauty of events lies in the creation of chance encounters. Despite all the digital tools that have been developed. At the same time, 100% of the exhibitors will be physically present in pavilion 1.”
