Celebrating what is almost our first birthday, and part of Philly Tech Week (http://2015.phillytechweek.com/events/philly_new_technology_meetup_-_food_and_tech), this one will be a big networking event (something you've requested!), bringing Philly food, beverage and spirits entrepreneurs together with our Tech community.
Our region's food entrepreneurs are an impressive group. We've invited many to demo or sample their products to a room filled with Philly's Tech scene, including media, investors, politicians, innovators, entrepreneurs, and prospective customers. The networking will be high caliber. We'll have our regular cast of sponsors to keep the event free to attend or exhibit.
The mood is lightened with samples from some breweries and distilleries - with tastings and pairings.
And featuring Photobot3000 (http://photobot3000.com/), specializing in custom photo booth rentals. Their open-air seated photo booth is fun and easy to use for all ages, plus its jammed full of state of the art professional equipment.
