The Have a Go Before You Go roadshow saw the brand bring its VR offering to consumers throughout the UK, transporting them to two idyllic locations. 

By donning VR headsets, people could enjoy a 360 degree windsurfing experience in Mediterranean waters, as well as the thrill of skiing down a snow-capped mountain in Andorra. 

According to Neilson, the responses ranged from amazed to awed. 

The roadshow was launched at the end of June and has travelled to locations including London, Birmingham, Brighton and Portsmouth.
