Allen And Company Visit Sun Valley
Hailey, Idaho (KMVT-TV) There's no shortage of corporate jets flying into Friedman Memorial Airport in Hailey this week. That's because it's the 30th annual Allen and Company Conference in Sun Valley.
Every year Herbert Allen invites movers and shakers from the upper levels of business and other industries. This year's guest list includes News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
Arlene Schieven, President of Visit Sun Valley, says, "It makes a huge difference, and not just during the time that they're here. They've been coming for many years, and they become part of the community. Some of them have second homes here, and they continue to come back to Sun Valley. So that's where we see the real big ripple effect."
Representatives from CBS were invited to the gathering, as well, including CEO Leslie Moonves and morning show co-host Charlie Rose.
