Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk will attend a meeting between tech leaders and President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday at Trump Tower in New York, The Verge has learned. Recode previously reported that Musk was considering skipping the event due to “critical work obligations.”

Invited attendees to the event reportedly include Alphabet CEO Larry Page, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Apple CEO Tim Cook, and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, as well as the CEOs of Microsoft, Cisco, IBM, Intel, and Oracle.

The event is said to have been organized by Trump Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, and venture capitalist Peter Thiel, who is on Trump’s transition team.
