About the HPA Tech Retreat:

The Tech Retreat is unique among industry events, asking world-class leaders in engineering, technology, creativity and business to turn away from their day-to-day routines and gather to explore and experience the most compelling topics around the creation, management, and dissemination of content. This kind of focused, authentic discussion between experts happens nowhere else.

Ideas are rigorously explored and debated – not just during onstage presentations, but continuously throughout the event, from the golf tournament to breakfast roundtables and dinners, all the way through to nightcaps.

The HPA Tech Retreat provides association services, networking opportunities and a community for entertainment industry professionals with access to some of the brightest minds in motion pictures and the entertainment industry.

As a non-profit trade association, the HPA Tech Retreat is established to promote the interest of all parties in the entertainment industry. From studio executives to creatives, technologists to engineers, the HPA Tech Retreat provides answers, education, and resources to help shape the future of our industry.
