The Sun Valley conference is officially in full swing.
This week, A-listers from the worlds of tech, media, and finance are descending upon Sun Valley, Idaho, for a week of networking, panel discussions, and outdoor pursuits hosted by private investment bank Allen & Co.
The annual event, which was canceled last year due to the pandemic, has historically been a breeding ground for blockbuster deals: Jeff Bezos’ purchase of The Washington Post was born out of conversations at Sun Valley, and Disney’s $19 billion acquisition of ABC was hatched at Sun Valley as well.
While we’ll have to wait and see what comes of this year’s conference, we can at least get a glimpse of which moguls have arrived at this year’s ultra-exclusive enclave.
