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 trade and association services, namely, promoting the interests of the professional entertainment community in the fields of creation and finishing of motion pictures, television, commercials, digital media and other dynamic media content.

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.
