Who to expect at this year’s Sun Valley conference

Mark Zuckerberg, Bob Iger, Shari Redstone and Brian Roberts will be among media moguls mingling in July at Allen & Co.’s annual conference in Sun Valley, Idaho, according to a guest list obtained by Variety.

The invite-only gathering — from which most reporters are banned — is known as a spot where power brokers can privately conjure up major deals.

Jeff Bezos’ purchase of the Washington Post, Comcast’s acquisition of NBC/Universal and Disney’s deal to buy Capital Cities/ABC all came out of the event.

Hollywood types will include megaproducer Brian Grazer, CAA bigwig Bryan Lourd and NBCUniversal’s Ron Meyer.
