ENGIE at Viva Technology 2017

The international laboratory for digital technologies and innovation that is Viva Technology opens its doors in Paris for the second consecutive year from June 15 to 17. Once again, the Group is showcasing some 30 startups in its "Energy revolution Lab", and is reaching out to innovative thinkers to help it build the world of tomorrow. ...

To coincide with ENGIE Innovation Week, the Group will be there at the second Viva Technology show in Paris, with an "Energy Revolution Lab" space showcasing startups engaged in the energy and digital revolution.

Last year, 45,000 visitors, 5,000 startups and 300 conferences marked the first Paris-based event dedicated to innovation: the three-day Viva Technology show. Building on this success, a second event is now scheduled for this summer at the Versailles Exhibition Center to overlap with ENGIE Innovation Week, which this year runs from June 12 to 16.

50,000 visitors are expected to attend this year's event, which is structured around the technologies that will shape tomorrow's world, such as virtual reality and artificial intelligence, in a context where the constant focus is on bringing startups face-to-face with leading corporates. To encourage more public involvement, there will also be drone wars and robot demonstrations to maintain consistency with the style of last year's event.
