If you are selected, you will be showcased in your own booth within the LVMH Luxury Lab during the three days of the event.

The fourth edition of Viva Technology is set for May 16-18 in Paris. LVMH will once again be center stage at the event as a Platinum Partner. A good many of the Group’s Maisons will be on hand at the LVMH stand to showcase their latest innovations. They will be joined by some 30 luxury-related startups from around the world whose ideas and solutions are relevant to the luxury industry and propose ways to meet the challenge of “Crafting the customer experience of tomorrow”.


“Help us go beyond by elevating and reinventing the customer experience of tomorrow,” says LVMH group. “We look for any relevant ideas related to the luxury sector or not, ranging from online and offline retail solutions, AR/VR or mixed reality tools, data and analytical systems, marketing and B2B solutions, forward-looking devices or services, and many more that can have an impact on how tomorrow’s luxury consumer experiences our Maisons,” explained the world leader in luxury.

To shortlist startups who will be invited to Viva Technology, LVMH has announced a call for applicants for its third Innovation Award. The award was launched with a highly successful first edition in 2017 and is open to all startups created less than ten years ago with a valuation of under $100 million, fewer than 100 employees and solutions that address the needs of the LVMH Group and its Maisons. Startups that meet these criteria are invited to apply directly on the LVMH Innovation Award website.

Through this award the LVMH Group actively supports young creative talents and stimulates new ideas by accelerating their growth and market traction. Previous winners of the LVMH Innovation Award were the startups Heuritech (deep learning) in 2017, followed by Oyst (e-commerce solution), VeChain (block chain) and Kronos Care (post-purchase experience) in 2018. Registration ends on February 15, 2019!
