However, the conference is fiercely off the record, so it's not really known what was talked about or by whom. However, the speculation that the tech giants joined discussions on how to stop US presidential front runner Donald Trump from reaching the White House will get tongues wagging.
The annual meeting is held on a private island resort off the coast of Georgia and closed to the press. An email written about the event and sent by Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol reportedly said:
"A specter was haunting the World Forum — the specter of Donald Trump. There was much unhappiness about his emergence, a good deal of talk, some of it insightful and thoughtful, about why he's done so well, and many expressions of hope that he would be defeated… The key task not, to once again paraphrase Karl Marx, is less to understand Trump than to stop him."
Trump has nearly one-third of the delegates he needs to secure the Republican Party nomination but faces big tests in the forthcoming Florida and Ohio primaries.
Meanwhile, a much smaller event in Britain, held on the record for politicians, religious figures and members of the Muslim community, made it no secret naming Donald Trump "UK Islamophobe of the year, 2016."
The spoof ceremony hosted by the Islamic Human Rights Commission announced Trump as the winner, mainly because of his campaign to stop Muslims from entering the US.
