Michael Smith, Food and Drink Devon chairman and managing director of Venus,

“This event is in response to members’ demand for more marketing advisory sessions. With great speakers, coupled with networking and publicity opportunities, this is definitely an event not to be missed by food and drink businesses, large or small.”

The workshop and networking event is hosted by Event Exeter, a recent new member to Food & Drink Devon, using the excellent facilities at Reed Hall, a prestigious setting for celebrations or conferences throughout the year on Exeter University’s Streatham campus.

The Food & Drink Devon Marketing Masterclasses & Networking Event is to be held on Monday, 23rd January from 3.00pm – 7.00pm to include food.  Cost: Members £10, non-members £25. Booking essential! For more information email: or Tel: 01803 712393.
