Buffett, Gates, Zuckerberg: The Richest People At 2021’s ‘Summer Camp For Billionaires’

Sun Valley 2021’s gilded guest list includes at least 25 billionaires, worth some $825 billion.


The summer vacation is back, with airline ticket sales strengthening and airport traffic recovering to pre-pandemic levels. That goes for those flying private too.

This week, a subset of America’s richest people descended upon Sun Valley, Idaho following the July 4 holiday for investment bank Allen & Co.’s annual conference—known as “summer camp for billionaires”—for the first large gathering of the ultra-wealthy since the 2020 World Economic Forum, held in Davos, Switzerland just before the world went into lockdown.

At least 25 billionaires—worth a collective $825 billion, by Forbes’ count—attended the conference, which was canceled last year amid the pandemic, for a week of fun in the sun and backroom dealings.

Here are 22 billionaires who were snapped rubbing elbows with fellow members of the corporate elite at the exclusive, intensely private event. Others—including Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, Shopify’s Tobi Lutke and Stripe’s Patrick Collison—were reportedly spotted but shied from the cameras. (Net worths are as of July 9, 2021.)
