The HPA Tech Retreat is the pre-eminent gathering for individuals and companies engaged in the creation, management, and dissemination of content. Every year, over the course a week near Palm Springs, the HPA Tech Retreat brings together a world-class roster of well-known and emerging leaders in engineering, technology, creativity and business. At the HPA Tech Retreat, the most compelling topics facing the media and entertainment landscape today are presented, explored and debated.
During the HPA Tech Retreat, attendees and speakers can unplug from their day-to-day routine to meet and engage with the brightest minds in the industry. From 7:30 AM breakfast roundtables to late-night fire pit conversations, there is nowhere else to experience the kind of unbiased, unvarnished, and authentic discussion, deliberation, and debate between experts that happens throughout the Tech Retreat.
Participants—who have included Oscar winners, program leads from NASA, and up-and-coming tech mavens—take a forward-looking approach to trends and technologies of the content creation ecosystem while tackling issues of the present from fresh perspectives.
The HPA Tech Retreat is a limited attendance event, strictly capped at 600 guests, that consists of the main conference program, a Supersession, a half-day mini-conference with focus on a single topic, daily breakfast roundtables, and the curated innovation zone where companies present the absolute latest in technology.
Tech Retreat Features
TR-X Monday: Everything You Thought You Knew About Artificial Intelligence in M&E and What You Didn’t Know You Didn’t Know
This thing Artificial Intelligence (AI), what’s that all about and what does it really have to do with Media & Entertainment now and in the future? The 2nd annual TR-X session, held in conjunction with the 2018 HPA Tech Retreat, will explore what all the fuss is about and, perhaps, generate new questions and ideas about the role of AI and Machine Learning (ML) in the M&E ecosystem.
TR-X, held the day before the HPA Tech Retreat, brings together thought leaders and creatives for a deep dive into topics of particular interest to the community. Registration is independent of or in addition to the HPA Tech Retreat.
HPA Supersession: It’s Still Snowing and We’re Just Making Bigger and Better Snowmen

Learn from the pros about how we are producing content across the widest spectrum of content creation – from spots to blockbusters. From live, streaming to fully synthetic films without any humans before the camera. Come learn about how many K’s are OK, how bright is bright and how HDR changes the game (or does it?). Will ACES ace this test? Is it always going to be like this? Come learn about what it takes to get all this complex content to audiences – because your career depends on it.
