Alongside the full conference at the 2016 Hollywood Post Alliance Tech Retreat, attendees can participate in the Innovation Zone, the evolution of the HPA Tech Retreat Demo Room. The Innovation Zone, a curated area presented in a space designed for learning and discovery, now focuses on products and technologies that are new to the market.
Companies participating in the Innovation Zone will be able to work individually, or with others to present workflow solutions that offer innovative methods. Companies presenting content distribution processes that work across global distribution platforms, as well as experimental and conceptual products, startups or creative solutions are all encouraged to apply. As it has always been, this is a curated educational area at the HPA Tech Retreat, not a typical trade exhibition. Applications are reviewed to determine eligibility to participate in the Innovation Zone. Space is still available, though limited. Current participants in the Innovation Zone include a variety of leading edge companies, many who are new to the Tech Retreat. A complete list is available online.
Vincent Maza, HPA board member and manager of the Innovation Zone said, "The Innovation Zone presents an incomparable opportunity to explore groundbreaking solutions and technologies that are making, or soon will make, an impact across the entire spectrum of content. The name change to the Innovation Zone illustrates the broadened experience for attendees and presenters, where entire workflow solutions can be explored as well as the individual technologies."
