Every summer, the top moguls of the tech, media, and business worlds gather in the sunny resort town of Sun Valley, Idaho for investment bank Allen & Co.’s annual week-long conference. They hobnob around town, talk business during conference sessions, and ride bikes through the mountains.

The 2018 conference is about to kick off, but in 2017, the 33rd annual event brought some of the wealthiest and most powerful people from around the world to Sun Valley once again.

This year, invitations were offered to plenty of familiar faces, including Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Apple CEO Tim Cook, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, Disney CEO Bob Iger, Shari Redstone and Leslie Moonves from CBS, Walmart CEO Doug McMillon, Comcast CEO Brian Roberts, Rupert Murdoch and his sons, and billionaire “cable cowboy” John Malone.

But until we can show off who’s in attendance this year, we gathered photos so you can see the power players that made the trek last year. Here’s who showed up at the 2017 Sun Valley Conference:
