Viva Tech Paris 2024

Since its inception in 2016, Viva Technology, more commonly known as VivaTech, has become an essential gathering in the world of technological innovation and start-ups. Held annually at the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles, this internationally renowned event is the result of a close collaboration between Les Échos and Publicis. In 2024, VivaTech once again emerges as the meeting point for creative minds and innovators from around the globe.

A Global Hub for Innovation

VivaTech is more than just a trade show; it is a true agora where major corporations, promising start-ups, savvy investors, and curious minds converge, all driven by the same passion for innovation. With an annual attendance of 124,000 visitors and 300,000 online visits from 146 different nationalities, VivaTech demonstrates its ability to transcend geographical and cultural boundaries to foster exchanges and collaborations.

Each edition of VivaTech is an opportunity to discover the latest technological advancements, debate societal issues related to innovation, and find solutions to tomorrow’s challenges. Inspiring conferences, demonstrations of revolutionary products, fruitful B2B meetings – everything is done to stimulate creativity and encourage entrepreneurship.

In this dynamic and stimulating context, the International Fashion Academy (IFA Paris) stands out as a major player in innovation in the fashion industry.
