Add a politics-meets-tech-meets-movies mixer to the growing lineup of events surrounding the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner next month.

The Motion Picture Association of America, Microsoft, and ABC News are hosting a slew of Hollywood types, including “Scandal” star Tony Goldwyn, “Supersize Me” filmmaker Morgan Spurlock, and “X-Men” series director Bryan Singer, at their joint Creativity Conference in Washington on May 2. The event, headlined by Vice President Biden, also features brass from movie studios and tech companies.

Forget small talk (better save that for the pre-dinner cocktail parties) — the agenda of the event includes “direct dialogue on the critical and growing role creativity plays in our global economy.”

But it won’t be all serious stuff — the biggest draw might not be the VIPs in attendance, but rather the actual Iron Throne from HBO’s “Game of Thrones.”  (For the uninitiated, the set piece is kind of a Big Deal.) Hope it’s ready for its close-up.

Here’s the full lineup:

Vice President Joseph R. Biden, Jr.

House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte

Sean Bailey, President, Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture Production

Mary Czerwinski, PhD, Research Manager and Principal Researcher, Microsoft Research

Tony Goldwyn, Actor/Director/Producer

Kati London, Senior Researcher, Microsoft

Amy Powell, President, Paramount Television & Paramount’s Insurge Pictures & Digital Entertainment

Lisa Rawlins, Senior Vice President, Public Affairs, Warner Bros. Entertainment

Avi N. Reichental, President and Chief Executive Officer, 3D Systems

William Sherak, Co-President, Content Creation, Deluxe Entertainment Service Group

Bryan Singer, Filmmaker

Morgan Spurlock, Filmmaker and Producer
