LOS ANGELES — The Hollywood Post Alliance has announced the lineup for its HPA Tech Retreat, set to take place February 13-17 at the Hyatt Grand Champions in Indian Wells, CA. The HPA Tech Retreat is the annual conference that brings together thought leaders from digital and content creation, media and entertainment, forensics, medicine, digital imaging, and in the field of academic research.
The event consists of three days of sessions, and two days of additional conference programming. There are also product demos and networking opportunities.
Leon Silverman, President of HPA, says, "Our industry's incredibly accelerated pace of change makes it extremely difficult to know to whom or where one can turn to make sure you're plugged into the knowledge and people you need to know to survive and navigate in this environment. The Tech Retreat is a yearly way to literally get into the heads and private conversations of the people who are driving and leading our industry through this transformative change. There really is nothing like it anywhere. A ticket to the Tech Retreat is a front-row, up close & personal seat on the cutting edge."
Registration for the HPA Tech Retreat is limited. Information and registration is available at: www.hpaonline.com.
