What is Vivatech?
Created in 2016, Vivatech has been designed as the first European gathering of startups in Europe. It is hosted by the Exhibiton Center of Paris-Porte-de-Versailles.
The events works in its unique way for designating who is to come and where startup will be exhibiting: big international companies invite the startup in their business sector, around them; the ambition is to promote synergies between startups and business leaders.
There are more than 750 exhibitors, attracting around 45,000 visitors.
And they all have to find an accommodation. They are looking for short-term rentals of apartments, studios, and villas.
How does the event work?
Exhibitors are split into 17 “thematic labs”: Mobilité Urbaine, Luxe, Hospitalité, Transports, Technologies Automobiles, Sport, Jeux & Divertissement, Energie, Médias, Transformation Urbaine, Distribution, e-Santé, Expérience Client, Services Financiers, Assurance, Télécoms, Gov Tech, Tech 4 Good.
