#OP3EuroTour – London Recap

    Matt G., Jul 20, 2016 :
    Hello Friends!

    After Manchester greeted us with some rather wet and windy weather, we had umbrellas at the ready for London. But as the bus pulled in to Ely's Yard, just a few minutes walk away from our London office, the sun was beaming down and it was time to break out the sunglasses.


    Ely's Yard is a bustling corner of the Shoreditch area, near to the famous Old Truman Brewery and filled with delicious street food, fine craft beers, and artisan coffee shops. It was encouraging to see that the area was already pretty busy when we began setting up the bus. It wasn't long before we had fans queuing up, eager to make sure they'd get their own tour t-shirts, with plenty of people passing by stopping to enquire about the bus and what we were doing. The Dash Charge station that we'd had to put away up north stood proudly outside the bus on this occasion, with the outdoor display devices kept cool by the gazebo.

    Once again, we found ourselves nestled in amongst no fewer than four PokeStops, and given the app's propensity for eating battery life rather quickly, we encouraged Pokemon GO fans to come and find myself and @Adam Krisko, and share some of their top tips in exchange for a free Power Bank. Truthfully, Adam and I just wanted to improve our skills :D

    With the sunshine out, it was nice to see people flocking to the bus throughout the day, and for me personally it was lovely to be able to meet many of the fans who send in messages on the OnePlus UK social channels. It was also super cool to be able to livestream some of the event on Facebook Live (via OnePlus 3 of course), and a huge thank you to everyone who tuned in, gave us a bunch of likes and hearts, and asked some really good questions. It's something we're going to look to do in more cities along the way, so make sure you're following the OnePlus Espana page for streams from Madrid and Barcelona!

    As the afternoon went on, the central area in the Yard filled with people taking a little break from the day to enjoy some drinks. Some joined the bus queue after they were done, while others sat down having been through the OnePlus 3 experience already, checking out their swag and topping up on PokeBalls.

    We got a lot of feedback from people who'd seen the launch, really liked the look of the device but (understandably) wanted to feel it in person for themselves and hold it in their hands. And that's ultimately what the Euro Tour is all about – really allowing the OnePlus 3 to speak for itself, and for as many people as possible to experience it first-hand. To that end, it was inspiring and humbling to hear people describe it as "performing and feeling as good as it looks".

    Again, enormous thanks to our amazing superfans, @obakesan, @Kinky, and @superplus (for the second city running!) for their invaluable help, and to everyone who visited the bus and tuned in to our social streams for the day. We had a wonderful time in London, thanks for being awesome.

    Now, it's time to look ahead to Spain. We'll see you in Madrid tomorrow, folks!

    Never Settle.

    Great day with mostly excellent weather, getting a feel of the OP3 was the only thing needed after seeing all the launch videos and reviews. Definitely made the correct decision to order my OP3, my second OP device. Great team working the tour bus very knowledgeable and informative people, especially @Matt G. Looking forward to the next Tour/Pop-up.
