A growing partnership: 3 years, more than 250 000 attendees

In previous editions of Viva Technology attendees and exhibitors told us they expect improved networking and a better UX. We listened. We agreed. We worked hard to upgrade our users' experience.

So we upgraded the matchmaking algorithm to make sure everybody gets the best opportunity to connect with the right people, content, and brands before, during and after the event.

We also introduced smart chatrooms and messaging with the aim of connecting faster and easier than ever before. Moreover, the organizing team could inform attendees on any last-minute changes to the program with real-time updates and push notifications.
