Following on from the success of Dublin’s Food & Drink IT Summit, the Blueface team set off Nov 7 for  the 2017 Food & Drink IT Summit in Coventry’s Ricoh Arena.

Blueface head of marketing, Neil Doyle – who was speaking about communication tech – was joined by Michelle and Navid for a day of networking, listening and learning.
