In early July, millionaires, billionaires, and tech moguls retreat to Sun Valley, Idaho, for Allen & Company’s conference, dubbed the “summer camp for billionaires.”

The private investment firm hosts multiple days of business-oriented talks in a press-free environment, where the likes of Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey, and Barry Diller discuss their industries, often bringing their significant others along for the event. The bigwigs get time to schmooze, too, during extracurricular activities like rafting and golf.

Here are some of the most powerful couples in tech and media who attended the weeklong conference:
