From 24 May 2018 to 26 May 2018 - The international tech event gives you a front row seat to the digital transformation
Numbers don’t lie: 45,000 visitors in 2016, followed by 50,000 in 2017, and 80,000 expected this year. As it steadily gains in number, it’s obvious that Viva Technology has become one of the most important international tech fairs.
From Thursday, May 24 through Saturday, May 26, 2018 the Group is thrilled to welcome visitors to our Open Innovation Lab, a 550-m2 environmentally responsible space dedicated to the theme of “Positive Banking.” The BNP Paribas Lab will be divided into five major areas dedicated to presenting our latest innovative projects and initiatives, hosting talks on the Group’s key themes, and promoting our startup ecosystem.
This year, a total of 103 countries will be represented, including familiar tech nations like the United States, Israel, China, the United Kingdom and South Korea, with a special focus on Africa, the new emerging land of innovative technology.
For the first time in 2018, new sectors will be represented by major names in the automotive, insurance, consumer electronics, cybersecurity and sports-tech industries. That means even more collaboration opportunities for startups!
Always more innovative
The event will also present notable and unique innovations, as well as even more immersive experiences. Throughout the three days, visitors can interact with robots and drones, test out virtual reality and augmented reality, and more.
