Inside the beautiful mountain lodge where the biggest names in tech and media are staying for Allen & Co.’s annual ‘summer camp for billionaires’

Sun Valley

Every year in July, investment bank Allen & Co. holds an exclusive conference in Sun Valley, Idaho. It’s a time for the top executives of America’s media, technology, and sports industries to hobnob and make deals. 

Past attendees have included the likes of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Apple CEO Tim Cook, and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. The annual congregation of wealthy businesspeople has earned itself the name “summer camp for billionaires,” and it’s credited with kindling major mergers like that of Comcast and NBC Universal. 

Let’s take an inside look at the massive and beautiful venue that plays host to this star-studded event: the famous Sun Valley Lodge.
