Tim Cook makes unexpected appearance at Allen & Co. retreat

updated 04:06 pm EDT, Wed July 11, 2012

First Apple CEO to visit in years

Tim Cook today made a surprise visit to the 29th annual Allen & Company Sun Valley Conference in Idaho, the New York Post reports. The Apple CEO was on a list of possible attendees, but whether or not he would actually show was unsure. Cook appears to have been there only briefly, attending a session on China by The New Yorker's Evan Osnos before retreating to the lodge while other corporate leaders ate lunch at the Duck Pond.

The Conference is a retreat organized by Allen & Company, a private investment firm; for a week every July, business leaders and philanthropists meet to network and listen to talks. In the past, guests have included people like Bill and Melinda Gates, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and Google's Larry Page and Sergey Brin. Apple co-founder Steve Jobs is also known to have gone to the event, but was absent in the years shortly before his death.
