Under London’s cool evening sky we made the short journey to  the world’s number one entertainment venue, the 02 Arena, where we enjoyed our networking tour.

With such a large attendance list this year we had to split the networking tour into two activities. One group had the opportunity to scale the heights of the O2 and take in breathtaking views of London, whilst the other group had the chance to go on an exclusive backstage tour of the iconic venue and enjoy a Q+A session with senior management.

However, the most important aspect was both tours ended up at the same location, the drinks reception in the main lobby with drinks and food aplenty.

With plenty of laughs and jokes the networking tour was a universally accepted success and the drinks reception was the perfect opportunity to network in a relaxed and informal environment after a fantastic first day at #TDS15.

We look forward to welcoming you back tomorrow for Day 2 of #TDS15.
