The world’s two richest individuals, Elon Musk and Bernard Arnault, recently had a lunch meeting last Friday in Paris. During the meeting in Paris, Musk, the richest person, was accompanied by his mother, while Arnault, the second-richest, came with his sons.
Elon Musk participated in the Viva Technology Annual Conference, which took place in Paris from June 14 to 17. LVMH founded the conference, which has gained recognition as Europe’s largest startup and tech event. Elon Musk and Bernard Arnault were both official speakers at the conference. Notably, the event also saw the presence of France President Emmanuel Macron.
Given their combined net worth of approximately $426 billion, it comes as no surprise that Musk, aged 51, and Arnault opted for an exceptionally luxurious venue for their lunch in Paris. Bloomberg reports that the two met at Cheval Blanc, a prestigious hotel chain owned by Arnault’s LVMH.
The details of Musk and Arnault’s discussion over lunch have not been disclosed to the public.
