VivaTech is Europe’s biggest startup and tech event. The fifth edition will take place on June 16 – 19, 2021, in Paris at Expo Porte de Versailles, and online. It will be an augmented event experience you can enjoy wherever you are.


The biggest startup & tech event in Europe

From top speakers and exhibitions 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-fuelled days. The first three days are dedicated to professionals while on the fourth day, VivaTech opens its doors to the general public.


Innovation catalyst

VivaTech breaks down the traditional barriers between grassroots innovators and global leaders. For the fifth year, our Labs match startups with established companies 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.

Innovators 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.

Each of these stages or channels will offer several thematic ‘shows’ for you to watch every day, presented by our team of professional hosts and bringing together the most prominent tech leaders, entrepreneurs and thinkers to get you inspired and better understand what tomorrow will be made of.
