Eddy Cue is among a list of high-profile speakers that will feature at this year’s New Establishment Summit held by Vanity Fair. Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs’ biography, is also in the lineup, alongside Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and Apple board member Bob Iger.

Jony Ive, Apple’s Chief Design Officer, was a speaker at the Vanity Fair summit in 2014 and 2015, but he won’t be returning for a third time. There are plenty of faces that will be familiar to Apple fans at this year’s event, however.

In addition to Isaacson and Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services, the lineup includes John Lasseter, chief creative officer at Pixar, the animation studio that was once owned by Jobs before it was sold to Walt Disney.

The list also includes speakers from Amazon, Uber, HBO, YouTube, Ford, Marvel Studios, and Activision Blizzard.

The New Establishment Summit takes place October 18-20 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, where Apple has hosted a slew of big keynotes throughout the years. The event is by invitation only; you can request yours on the summit’s webpage.

Here’s a video from Ive’s previous appearance at the event:
