The annual Allen & Company conference is underway in Idaho, with the first guests seen arriving a little after noon on Tuesday.
Every July, some of the world's wealthiest and most powerful business people in media, finance, technology and political spheres converge at the Sun Valley Resort for the exclusive week-long conference.
This year it was the big names who showed up early, with Rupert Murdoch one of the first on the scene accompanied by his wife Jerry Hall.
Photos from the event show the Australian billionaire heading off on to the grounds of the Sun Valley Resort while holding hands with Hall.
Robert Kraft was also spotted getting out of his chauffeured car on Tuesday, but the New England Patriots owner did not have girlfriend and new mom Ricki Lander by his side for the trip.
The two men both wore Nike Air sneakers, though only Kraft's had sizable lifts.

It's rather ironic the heads of the companies that invade people's privacy want some. What are they keeping secret? The most logical answer would be they're taking over the world. The masses are mired in the World Cup and other diversions. To the victor goes the spoils. Most people have no idea there is even a game.
