RingCentral Engage partook in the VivaTech event May 24-26, the key rendez-vous for the innovation and start-up field. Organized by Les Echos and Publicis, this 3rd edition hosted almost 150 conferences and put under the spotlight over the 300 speakers.

VivaTech’s main stage showcased tech world experts like Chuck Robbins (Cisco’s CEO) who shared a optimistic view of technological innovation, Satya Nadella (Microsoft’s CEO) who enthusiastically spoke in support of AI, and Bill McDermott (SAP’s CEO). France’s President Emmanuel Macron reminded during his speech that France is the European country with the most start-ups. Global companies, numerous french businesses, and young startups contribute to spreading French Tech’s expertise around the world thanks to an ecosystem in favour of innovation.
Furthermore, this event also set aside time to comment on and discuss the latest innovations in terms of AI, virtual reality, and Customer Care.
