Compare and Share’s voyage to #OSFest15 was one of great delight! With six of us in tow (Tolani, Blanca, Nick, Benita) including two from The People Who Share camp (Imran and Candida), it was sure to be a very eventful trip.

Finding an apartment to house all of us without compromising on space wasn’t going to be easy but we found it in this gem- a great loft apartment located in the Parisian neighbourhood of Saint-Denis. Boasting real industrial spirit, it had a mezzanine steel structure with beams across the whole apartment, 6 bedrooms and a terrace - what more could we have asked for!
Spanning three days and over 1000 visionaries in attendance, key topics for the event were centred on building and nurturing the growth and empowerment of the sharing economy. Featured speakers included BlaBla Car, Shareable and Liftshare though the mega highlight was of course seeing founder, Benita, speak on its future.
In summary, there was so many great things to see and experience at #OSFest15. From the food to the great vibes, check out a few of our favourite moments below:
Walking to the event along the Bassin de la Villette
Morning samba with beat-boxing aficionado, Tobias Hug
Our sharing table in the garden where plenty of amazing goods were exchanged
Imran from Sharing TV bringing the vibes whilst getting a bit of exercise
Karaoke and drinks with the Shareable team
The magnificent Dominique Sylvian leading the community in a sing-a-long
Last but surely not least, the party at BlaBlaCar France HQ where we took out best family portrait yet!
