Vivatech, a major technology company, is meeting in Paris from 22-25 May

Eighth Annual Edition VivaTechthe largest European event dedicated to startups and technology, will take place from May 22 to 25 Paris at the Expo Porte de Versailles exhibition center. VivaTech, an authentic meeting place for business and innovation, once again confirms itself as a major event in the industry’s international calendar. With its growing global importance and special focus on key issues such as artificial intelligence, sustainable technologies and mobility, the event is establishing itself as a major reference point for interpreting new trends and assessing the associated economic and social implications.

With 350 companies and organizations taking part, spanning 25 industries including automotive, healthcare and retail, we are also launching a new program designed to help business leaders drive growth and innovation.

As part of its growing commitment to responsible technology, VivaTech is dedicating 10% of its exhibition space to this area, including the Impact Bridge, a new space supported by Edf that brings together startups, innovations and non-profit associations with responsible technology. Artificial intelligence is revolutionizing all industries and moving from an innovative technology to an indispensable tool – 88% of entrepreneurs surveyed planned to invest in artificial intelligence in 2024. Artificial intelligence will therefore be the focus of attention in Paris, with 37% of partners presenting their AI-based solutions and every innovation presented applicable to all 25 economic sectors represented during the show, reflecting the broad spectrum of AI applications. In addition, there will be speakers such as Arthur Menschco-founder and president of Mistral Ai, Dario Amodeico-founder and CEO of Anthropic e Snow Revanurfounder and president of Encode Justice, who will participate in discussions on societal issues related to artificial intelligence, ensuring a full understanding and in-depth consideration of the impact and potential of the new technology.

«Like every year, VivaTech will present news related to technologies, startups and, of course, artificial intelligence, which is at the heart of almost every company strategy. Discussions at Viva Tech with leading experts will highlight the full potential of AI, its positive advances and innovative solutions in areas such as healthcare, cyber security, climate, industry, education and so on. It will be these discussions and many others that will guide the decisions of entrepreneurs in the next 12 months”, explained Viva Tech co-organizers Maurice Levy Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Publicis Groupe e Pierre Louette CEO of Les Echos – Le Parisien Group.

Sustainable technology, a topic of great importance and public interest, is also a key topic for business leaders. According to a survey by Viva Tech, 93% of participants in Europe and the United States believe that technology is an essential ally in solving the challenges of the future. Investment in the sector is actually growing and is expected to double by 2027 to support innovation in the face of climate change. Witness the success of sustainable technology startups that have managed to raise a record $51 billion by 2023. Among the solutions that will be presented at Viva Tech this year:

  • Agrist (Japan) promotes agricultural innovation with artificial intelligence robots that facilitate harvesting and enable real-time analysis of soil data to improve crop management;
  • Value Park (France) was created to develop technologies for the production of renewable cold using marine resources;
  • Bioteos (France) is a solution for improving air quality using microscopic algae. This technology makes it possible to treat not only air pollutants, but also viruses and bacteria.

Among this year’s speakers, Alloysius Attah CEO of Farmerline, Rachel Delacourco-founder, CEO and president of Sweep, Craig Douglas general partner of the World Fund e Christophe Gras general partner of Planet A Ventures.


The mobility sector demonstrates the best that can be achieved when technologies such as AI meet such an important issue as sustainability in a business context. This year, the sector will have a central role at Viva Tech, mainly thanks to the first collaboration with Tesla, whose entire ecosystem will be presented in a dedicated area that highlights its mission to accelerate the global transition to sustainable energy. In this context, Viva Tech will host Software Républicque and their CEO in conversation at Stage One. Finally, further announcements, exclusivities and innovations are planned, especially from Peugeot/Stellantis, which wants to become the European leader in electric cars by 2025 and will present novelties and exclusivities such as the concept car «Inception» and the revolutionary technology «Hypersquare»; but also from Fly-Box, a startup specialized in ecological cargo transport, from Airbus with its innovative solutions for air mobility and from ADP Group, with Volo copter and their vision of the airport of the future.

François Bitouzet, CEO of Viva Tech: «Viva Technology is an essential meeting place for business and technology, where the best startups and leading companies from around the world are presented. Innovation is booming, fueled by artificial intelligence, positive challenges and entrepreneurs ready to take advantage of all these crucial opportunities.
