Right after Independence Day, the western world's media elite usually descends on Idaho to participate at the Allen and Co. Conference, hosted at the Sun Valley Resort.
And the 2014 edition should have plenty of buzz.
The conference, always heavy on executives from media and entertainment, is expected to host Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, Shutterstock CEO John Oringer, Cloudera CEO Tom Reilly, Pandora Chairman Brian McAndrews, Time Warner CEO Jeffrey Bewkes, filmmaker Harvey Weinstein, DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg and Walt Disney Chairman Robert Iger. The conference will also attract athletes, celebrities and politicos, including this year's attendees New Jersery Gov. Chris Christie and former New York mayor/ Bloomberg founder Michael Bloomberg.
This year's Allen and Co. conference runs from July 8-13.
