Summer camp for billionaires is officially underway.
The nation’s top executives in tech, finance, and media are converging on Sun Valley, Idaho, for several days of hobnobbing, deal-making, and outdoor recreation. Hosted by investment firm Allen & Co., the ultra-exclusive event has been a breeding ground for major mergers and acquisitions over the years, as well as rare photo ops of moguls relaxing at luxe mountain retreat Sun Valley Lodge.
This year’s event comes amid a contentious acquisition deal between Elon Musk and Twitter, as well as broader economic upheaval, including recession fears and widespread layoffs.
Still, that hasn’t stopped the 1% from heading to Idaho — typically via private jet — to mix and mingle with their fellow elite. Here’s who’s been spotted so far.
