Attendees will have access to peer-reviewed technical sessions, invited presentations, and panels, as well as to the Solutions Hub and new features of this year’s conference, like the Tech Trek.

The Tech Trek will be guided, interactive exhibit tours showcasing technology discussed in the sessions. These tours will provide participants with an opportunity to experience technology firsthand, as well as the leaders who created it. There will also be off-site experiences on October 24 for those who are interested in participating.

“The 2024 Media Technology Summit will have something for everyone,” said Zandra Clarke, SMPTE Director of Membership and MTS Co-Chair. “Whether you want to learn, network, or further your career, the Summit is the place to do it. SMPTE has provided the tools to succeed in the industry. It’s up to you to use them wisely.”
