2017 HPA Tech Retreat UK Registration Now Open
The HPA Tech Retreat UK is returning to the Heythrop Park resort in Oxfordshire.
HPA has opened registration for the 2017 HPA Tech Retreat UK, presented in association with the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers.
The Tech Retreat attracts a high-level roster of engineering, technology, creative and business leaders who gather to confer on the trends and technologies of the future, while tackling the issues of the present from fresh perspectives. The HPA Tech Retreat UK takes place 11 to 13 July, and is returning to the Heythrop Park resort in Oxfordshire.
The Tech Retreat offers a rare opportunity to spend dedicated time to discuss the media business’ most pressing topics with industry leading colleagues. Part think tank, part conference, and extensively connective, the Tech Retreat creates an engaging and inspiring environment for attendees. As the industry navigates changing media production workflows, the HPA Tech Retreat presents three days of questions, conversation and understanding to place attendees at the forefront of knowledge.
Richard Welsh, SMPTE VP of Education, returns as Chair of the 2017 Retreat. Welsh noted, ‘Last year was a great launch, and we have even more amazing content planned for this year. As before, the subject matter will be uniquely balanced between cutting edge creative techniques and technical innovation. With the addition of Tech Retreat Extra (TR-X), the 2017 Tech Retreat UK will be something extremely special’.
The multifaceted event will take place over three days, inclusive of TR-X, and includes thought provoking conference sessions, daily breakfast roundtables with thought leaders guiding discussions of important topics, and the Innovation Zone, where the latest products, workflows and technologies are available for examination in a curated environment. In addition, the HPA Tech Retreat UK is introducing TR-X, a special, standalone day focused on VR, AR & MR, from the production workflow perspective. Right at the core of HPA Tech Retreats are the numerous networking opportunities throughout the event including lunch, dinner and cocktail events where attendees and speakers meet and converse.
Seth Hallen, President of HPA, noted, ‘As we enter the 2nd year of this great event, I am looking forward to returning to Oxfordshire to plug back into the conversations there. It’s important to take a few days out of our working routine, to engage and discuss with our colleagues what’s in store for the future. The Tech Retreat brings attendees into the vanguard of our industry. The work of Richard, Jerry, Andrew, and the entire team ensure this year’s HPA Tech Retreat UK will be a valuable and meaningful event for our community’.
