The list of guests has not been released, but The New York Times reported that Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Apple’s Tim Cook and Google’s Sundar Pichai are expected to attend Trump’s tech conference. Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins will also attend the meeting, according to USA Today. 

Trump’s incoming chief of staff, Reince Priebus; Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner; and transition team member Peter Thiel sent the invitation, USA Today reported.

Trump has had a tenuous relationship with the technology industry, especially with firms in Silicon Valley. 

Thiel, who campaigned for Trump, is one of the few exceptions. Thiel has reportedly been trying to recruit talent to the White House from Silicon Valley.
