Earlier this week, Google hosted an exclusive conference at a luxurious resort in Sicily for a selection of the world’s most rich-and-famous and their families, including tech stars like Elon Musk, Evan Spiegel, and Ben Horowitz.
Sicilian blogger Tony Siino talked to an attendee about what went on, and told Business Insider via email that the conference, dubbed “The Camp,” was three-days of intellectual discussions, relaxation, and sight-seeing.
According to Siino’s source, morning discussions included a wide range of topics, including how to extend human life and the design of cities of the future. In the afternoons, he said, guests could choose from activities like sailing, jet-skiing, paddle-boarding, golf, and biking. Google also organised trips to a local winery and the Hera Temple in the ancient city Selinunte.
Siino also wrote about the event for Wired’s Italian site.
Skateboard legend Tony Hawk attended with his family, and definitely had a great experience, judging by his Twitter feed:
