About the HPA Tech Retreat: Back in Person!
Why is the HPA Tech Retreat the most important event of the year?
Bringing together a world-class roster of leaders in engineering, technology, creativity and business to explore and experience the most compelling topics around the creation, management, and dissemination of content, the HPA Tech Retreat is unique among tech events. Ideas are rigorously explored and debated – not just during onstage presentations, but continuously throughout the event, from breakfast roundtables through to nightcaps.
The Tech Retreat depends on participants turning away from their day-to-day routines to engage with the brightest minds in the industry. This kind of focused, and authentic discussion between experts happens nowhere else.
Who Will Be There?
Participants have included Oscar winners, studio technology chiefs, NASA scientists, and executives from the most compelling technology hubs. Attendees are there to engage completely with forward-looking trends and technologies of the content creation ecosystem while tackling issues of the present from fresh perspectives.
