There is an annual conference in Sun Valley (Idaho, in the United States) which is organized by Allen & Company so that big names in technology can interact, exchange ideas and even close deals. As has traditionally been happening, Apple is being well represented by its CEO, Tim Cook, which appears for the fifth time at the event. Along with him is also Eddy Cue, senior vice president of software and internet services for Ma.
Focused on the world of technology and media, the meeting that ends on Saturday (9/7) has already hosted Jack Dorsey (Twitter CEO), Brian Roberts (Comcast), Mary Barra (General Motors), James and Lachlan Murdoch (FOX), and Bob Iger (CEO of Walt Disney, who is also on the Apple board of directors), who spent a good deal of time talking to Cook and Cue as shown in the image below.
This meeting with big names in the media can mean (and we hope it will be so) many deals for iTunes, Apple TV, Apple Music not to mention the possible creation of a streaming of Ma's own videos as some rumors have seen since last year.
Only those invited will appear at the event, and among the big names are still Mark Zuckerberg, Rupert Murdoch and Barry Diller who have not yet appeared there.
