Heavy Chef's CEO Fred Roed spoke to Sean Reitz, serial entrepreneur, drone fanatic and co-founder of DroneCon, to find out about the upcoming conference, what it's all about and why we should be excited about it. Sean was also a panelist at last year's Heavy Chef event focusing on Drone Tech (excerpt: "I'm in the most exciting field in the world") and he's the CEO at United Drone Holdings. It's safe to say that Sean knows a thing or two about drones.
