Why did Sherpany attend Viva Technology event in Paris?

The French tech event of the year.

Countless events have emerged in recent years tackling ardent topics related to technology innovation. Among them, we can count Viva Technology, the biggest gathering of startups and companies to celebrate innovation. At its 4th edition, this year's conference brings together business representatives at Porte de Versailles in Paris, between the 16th and 18th of May, 2019.

Viva Technology enables tech passionates to catch up with the most important trends in technology such as blockchain technology, AI (artificial intelligence), data mining and more, and innovations while attending some outstanding talks from some of the greatest business people and speakers: Jean-Laurent Bonnafé (BNP Paribas), Bernard Arnault (LVMH), Sébastien Missoffe (Google), Jean-Paul Agon (L’Oréal), Stéphane Richard (Orange), Ginni Rometty (IBM), Jimmy Wales (Wikipedia), Mickey Mikitani (Rakuten), Börje Ekholm (Ericsson), Jack Ma (Alibaba) and many more.

Sherpany's top reasons for participating.

Keen on finding out the latest tech innovations and getting in touch with thought leaders in the tech industry, we were represented by our meeting expert in France, Benjamin Roger. Read on to learn more about the event and his experience there as a participant.

Here are Sherpany's top reasons to attend.

  • 100.000 participants from 125 countries. The number of people interested in Viva Technology has doubled since its first edition in 2016 when the event counted about 45.000 attendees. At Sherpany, we're excited to be among them starting with the event's 4th edition.
  • Google, Microsoft, IBM, Huawei, Alibaba. These top tech companies and more join the conversation about artificial intelligence, virtual reality, 5G technology, and other hot topics. It's always a pleasure to learn from the best and stay on top of current tech trends.
  • 450 speakers from the world's top C-suite and politicians. Present at the event are executives like Jean-Laurent Bonnafé (BNP Paribas), Sébastien Missoffe (Google), Ginni Rometty (IBM), Jack Ma (Alibaba), and politicians such as Emmanuel Macron (President of France) and Justin Trudeau (Prime Minister of Canada). We could not miss such great speeches.
  • 180 sessions within 9 tracks offer. The tracks focus on topics like the Startup Life, Women in Tech, CMO Forum, AfricaTech, to name a few, and are discussed in the 180 sessions held during the 3 days' conference.
  • 9.000 startups and 1.9000 investors attending. The event not only gathers big names in terms of speakers it also unites a variety of professionals from the startup scene, anxious to find out all about the latest innovations in technology. As Benjamin explains:

"Viva Technology has clearly established itself as the "must go" event for innovation, not only for entrepreneurs but also for business leaders and politicians. Sherpany's presence here is both a privilege and proof of that. While innovation was clearly the subject matter of this event, Jack MA from Alibaba reminded us that the focus should always be on the client and his needs."
