The Hollywood Professional Association has announced additional details for its 2020 HPA Tech Retreat, which will take place February 17-20. The HPA Tech Retreat includes the main conference program, Supersession, TR-X and the Innovation Zone as well as extensive networking and meeting opportunities that are incorporated throughout the four day event. The 2020 HPA Tech Retreat will take place at the Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa in Rancho Mirage, California.
2020 marks the 25th year of the annual gathering, which has served as the forum for groundbreaking thought leadership, analysis and connection. Predictive but not predictable; disruptive, informative, and with a decidedly non-commercial focus that eschews marketing-oriented presentations, the HPA Tech Retreat is where honest and challenging discussions take place. Technologies have been premiered, dismantled and discussed in this forum over the course of those 25 years, and the deep analysis that has transpired has led to a number of fundamental changes and advancements for the industry.
As the organization moves into the next phase of the HPA Tech Retreat, the event continues to offer an incomparable opportunity to engage and collaborate with well-known and emerging leaders in engineering, technology, creativity and business in an environment designed to facilitate connection.
In keeping with its evolutionary approach, the 2020 HPA Tech Retreat offers an incomparable main program curated as always by Mark Schubin; an expanded TR-X under co-chairs Mark Chiolis and Craig German; and a fresh take on the Supersession, under the leadership of Joachim Zell, which will present the end-to-end live production and post-production of a short film.
More than 70 speakers will fuel insight and conversation over the course of the four-day retreat. In announcing the main conference program Schubin said, “Each year, we don’t know what issues will be discussed until we see the submissions, and this year's were particularly great! I’m looking forward to intensive learning about everything from weaponized video to driving consumer acceptance to the future of production and post. I can hardly wait.”
