namR at Viva Technology 2019

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 namR 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 namR, 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”.
