WHY YOU SHOULD GO

During the HPA Tech Retreat, attendees and speakers unplug from their day-to-day routine to engage with the brightest minds in the industry. From 7:30 AM breakfast roundtables to late-night fire pit conversations, there is nowhere else to experience the kind of unbiased, unvarnished, and authentic discussion, deliberation, and debate between experts that happens throughout the Tech Retreat.

The HPA Tech Retreat is a limited attendance event, strictly capped at 700 guests, that consists of the main conference program, TR-X Tech Retreat Xtra, the Supersession, breakfast roundtables, and the curated innovation zone where companies present the absolute latest in technology.

 

TIPS

Early to bed early to rise.  Not to be missed breakfast roundtables start at 7.30 each day. The time to let your hair down is Thursday evening ahead of the weekend, where all participants and speakers will be indulging in late night, fire side banter.

 

WHERE TO STAY

The Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa  •  Rancho Mirage, CA. Airbnb is available but to make the most of this intense retreat it is advisable to stay on premise.
