#4 Gain A Competitive Edge

VivaTech isn't all about individual growth—it's a strategic investment in your company's competitive advantage. By sending your team, you're granting them access to a wealth of market intelligence and innovative ideas that can propel your business forward. Stay ahead of industry trends, analyze competitor strategies, and gain a deeper understanding of market dynamics through the diverse range of exhibitors and thought leaders present.

“There are more and more competitors that do what we do. So being at VivaTech is important to show to others that we are present in the ecosystem and to show what we’re able to do and obviously to search for leads for potential customers.” - Nicolas Guinot, Head of Sales at Billiv.

#5 Bring the Team Together

While VivaTech offers plenty of opportunities for individuals to network and learn, it’s even better to do it with your whole team! With a variety of sessions and exhibitors, each team member can discover the parts of the event that speak to them the most. Then gather at the end of the day for a networking dinner to share your findings.

What’s more, groups get a special discount – up to 20% off. We promise it will be better than last year’s team-building scavenger hunt (although you could always try one in VivaTech 🤔).

See you from 22-25 May 2024!

Seize the opportunity to supercharge your team's growth. By securing passes during the Early Bird phase, you can unlock an additional discount on pass prices from now until April 4th.
