From the first floor of the Eiffel Tower, VivaTech officially launched the roadmap for this year’s edition which will take place in Paris from the 14th to 17th of June 2023, at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles. While they’ll be in the same location as years previous, VivaTech will be occupying 20% more exhibition space, including a Future of Sport dedicated space in a new hall.
This new area, dedicated to the Future of Sport, will be focused on SportTech and Business, one of the new major themes VivaTech is heading this year. With the Rugby World Cup happening in September 2023 and the Olympics in the summer of 2024, Paris is becoming an epicenter for the sports world – and VivaTech is creating a stage for actors, institutions, and businesses in sports to gather together.
Also for the first time in the startup and tech event’s history, a FemTech village will address numerous topics, such as women's well-being, menstrual health, reproduction and contraception, pregnancy and breastfeeding, mental health, etc. Likewise, a challenge for innovative femtech startups will also be organized with FemTech France. A selection of startups will be offered a boot camp to help the development of their business.
“This market is already setup and mature in United States with Unicorns and Investments Funds. The FemTech industry is actually developing a lot in Europe with Clue in Germany, Elvie in UK, or Ava in Switzerland”. - Delphine Moulu, Co-Funder of FemTech France
But how can we talk about tech, without mentioning the developments happening in AI these last few months? VivaTech will be putting AI in the spotlight for 4 days to discuss the numerous questions and positions AI brings about socially and in the tech ecosystem. Conferences bringing together leaders and specialists from all over the world will speak on VivaTech stages about ethics, regulation, business opportunities, and the environmental impact of AI.
“The contribution of the tech industry to societal issues is crucial, even more so in these turbulent times. New technologies and the exceptional development of artificial intelligence pose new challenges.” - Maurice Levy, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Publicis Groupe & Pierre Louette, CEO of Les Echos-Le Parisien, co-organizers of the event
Of course, more topics such as Cybersecurity, ClimateTech, FoodTech, Scaling Up, Deep Tech, WEB3 or the Creator’s Economy will also be discussed on the VivaTech stages and Halls for 4 days in June.
