Beet Retreat
San Juan 2023

Condado Vanderbilt Hotel
February 8–10, 2023

The Beet Retreat, one of the industry’s most talked about gatherings of high-level media executives, will take place at the Condado Vanderbilt Hotel, San Juan, Puerto Rico, February 8–10, 2023.

About the Retreat

Part industry enclave and part a made-for-TV setting, the event will provide essential industry intelligence and connections with the people who are leading the industry. For the participants, it will provide exposure via videos on Beet.TV along with high-impact social media. The Retreat will provide unique business development opportunities and enduring professional relationships.

We will be working with a small group of sponsoring partners to develop our plans for the event – helping to set the industry’s agenda for the 2020’s. The partners will play a key role in helping to curate the event and develop the sessions, working with Beet to jointly create content and session formats. This includes programming, speaking opportunities, private pitch sessions, and real engagement with the industry.

Along the way, we’ll also explore how changing consumer preferences and new service launches are transforming the TV and premium video marketplace, deep diving into the latest developments in streaming and OTT, data and audience targeting, measurement and attribution, and international opportunities.

The Retreat is limited to 200 attendees.

Travel to Puerto Rico is domestic, passports are not required. There are many direct flights daily from major U.S. cities to San Juan. The event hotel is approximately 15 minutes from the airport.
