We are just one month away from Fortune Brainstorm Tech, our annual gathering of senior tech executives, investors and thinkers at the Aspen Institute campus in Colorado on July 11-13.

Several weeks ago, we announced that our participants would include such folks as Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, Google cloud boss Diane Greene, WeWork co-founders Adam Neumann and Rebekah Paltrow Neumann, Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins, Toys R Us CEO Dave Brandon, GM president Dan Ammann, Lyft president John Zimmer, Magic Leap CEO Rony Abovitz, Dropbox CEO Drew Houston, Koch Industries co-CEO Charles Koch and GE vice chair Beth Comstock.

Today we’d like to share some additional participants:

Fortune Brainstorm Tech will be pleased to welcome Bob Iger, chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Co. (DIS), who will discuss how his company is navigating through the entertainment industry’s many changes (plus the opening of the new Disney park in Shanghai, its first in mainland China).

Also joining us will be Brian Chesky and Belinda Johnson of Airbnb, who will share how they are growing their company while navigating the murky legal waters of a rapidly-evolving hospitality industry. Plus Dan Schulman, CEO of PayPal (PYPL), who will delve into how PayPal has changed in its first year as an independent company from eBay and how it is evolving into a modern day bank
