Both Hagle and Wilson said it will be difficult for any would-be presidential candidate to skip Romney's retreat.
"We're not going to see a lot of jockeying at this stage, but all the players will want to have a seat at that table," Wilson said.
This year's retreat is being sponsored by Solamere Capital, the Boston-based equity firm that Romney recently announced he was joining, but there is a $5,000 cost to attend. It is not clear whether the money collected will only go toward the event's expenses or could be used to support GOP candidates.
Solamere also hosted an investors conference in Deer Valley during last June's retreat, The firm was started five years ago by Romney's eldest son, Tagg, and his 2008 and 2012 campaign finance chairman, Spencer Zwick. Romney, who amassed a personal fortune as a Boston financier, reportedly will serve as the firm's chairman.
