Surprise team lunch, escape game, and drinks in an arcade bar – just an average day at Locala with the R&D team ūüėČ


At Locala, we host an¬†annual team building event each year with all the teams including¬†sales, marketing, adops, traders, account managers, and the R&D. This¬†annual company-wide team building is important to¬†exchange ideas across teams and took place right before everyone’s summer vacations. This year, our R&D team has grown to¬†more than 30 members strong! So…for the first time, we organised a surprise team bonding event just for the geeks in the family!


After a whole month of anticipation, the¬†R&D team had an exciting surprise on Thursday that started with a pizza lunch together on our¬†terrace in the Paris office.¬†After, we all headed to L’Antichambre to compete in an escape game. We split into 5 teams for some friendly competition, each team was in a room with a different theme ranging from voodoo, KGB, contagion, ghost and mummy. The first team to make it out of the escape room accomplished¬†it under an impressive 30 minutes! After an¬†intense hour, we headed to Le Fant√īme to satisfy our thirst. At the Fant√īme we played some old-school pinball, classic games like Street Fighter and Pacman…and our office favourite:¬†table football (FR: babyfoot). All accomplished with generous servings of alcohol let’s not forget to mention!
