The O2 is 10 years old

June 29th, 2017

This month sees the 10th year anniversary of the O2 – here’s 10 facts about the O2;

1.   The tent structure of The O2, which is the world’s largest fabric structure, is visible from space.

2.   In 2014, 13,551 burritos and 49,105 portions of chips were bought at The O2.

3.   In 2015, 603,398 pints and 209,913 bottles of beer were sold.

4.   It would take 3.8 million pints to fill The O2 with beer.

5.   36 million people have travelled to The O2 using the tube.

6.   Before Bon Jovi played the opening night, The O2 was put through its paces with a special event for O2 staff and their guests. Named ‘The O2 Premiere’, the gig featured performances from Peter Kay, Kaiser Chiefs, Tom Jones and Basement Jaxx.

7.   In 2013, The O2 hosted Campus Party Europe – the world’s largest technology event – which welcomed around 10,000 guests and featured appearances from some of the world’s leading technological minds, such as Vint Cerf, (one of the Internet’s founding fathers) and Noland Bushnell, who created Atari. Robosapien even showed up. 1,600 tents were erected and The O2 was home – for a week – to 3000 attendees who stayed and geeked out 24/7.

8.   If you laid the Eiffel Tower on its side, it would fit inside The O2.

  • “Always been very happy with ADSI from day one. We get contacted constantly by other companies but we would never leave ADSI as the service is fantastic and our Accounts Manager is brilliant – he helps with all queries and is knowledgeable, friendly and  we feel confident that he  gets us the best deal. Many companies we’ve used over the years have been in it for the money only but with ADSI we feel that they really do put the customer first, can’t praise highly enough.”

We receive a personalised service and he is always on hand to advise us on maximising our telecoms whilst keeping an eye on budgets, all without compromising the high level of standards we have come to expect.   Because of this we have moved all our mobile needs to ADSI which goes against normal company policy where we by principle never use a sole supplier.”
