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.

Sun Valley Lodge’s grand entryway is complete with wildlife.

Imagine how many business secrets have been discussed among these wood-paneled walls.

The hotel’s impeccable decor complements its high-profile guests.

Fireplaces like this one are meant to keep guests warm in the winter, but they also provide stately charm in the summertime.

The fireplace in the spa gift shop is a true design marvel.

Incredible mountain views like these are just part of Sun Valley Lodge’s appeal …

… while hiking and biking trails further enhance the camp-like atmosphere, and give the moguls quiet spots to talk business.

This giant pool gives the billionaires and their families plenty of space to splash around …

… and this classy poolside café room is a more intimate space to chat.

No place in the hotel looks more relaxing than these poolside cabana loungers.
