Back to the Viva Technology Salon 2019

From may 16th to 18th 2019, our team was introducing our last innovations among the other 1300 start-ups.

An unavoidable annual meeting of start-ups and major companies of tech, the Viva Technology salon, co-organised by Publicis Group and the Group Les Echos took place this spring at the Parc des expositions de Versailles.

From may 16th to 18th 2019, our team was presenting the last innovations nam.R in our stall, among the other 1300 start-ups.

As every year, Viva Technology arranged three days long hundred of conferences about tech artificial intelligence, unique immersive experiences, practical workshop, demonstrations and a giant hackathon that last 36 hours. In 2018, the event gathered close to 100 500 visitors less than the 124 000 of this year.

After our participation at the summit gathering the leaders of the major companies, start-ups, associations and actors of the world digital ecosystem at The Élysée around the President of the Republic, Emmanuel Macron, we came upon the other digital actors that, as nam.R, devoted themselves to the ecological transition by developing the social and environmental impact of their activity.

As a symbol of progress towards ecological transition, an entire aisle was dedicated this year to the tech for good: the “Better Life Avenue”.

Tech For Better Conference

By the way Tech for good was one of the four topics discussed by Viva Technology along with Africa Tech, the pavillon that, for the second consecutive year, was bringing into light the dynamic ecosystem of african start-ups, Women in Tech, whose goal is to open the profession to women and to introduce women that participate to the modernisation of this sector as well as United Tech of Europe, the pavillon dedicated to european start-ups.

Drones, humanoide robots, driverless car racing, artificial intelligence achievements, the event was the opportunity to identify the future “Licornes” (start-ups with a valuation of 1 billion or more) which are 300 in this world, most of them located in the United States of America (165) and in China (90).
