One of President Donald Trump’s most prominent Republican critics and one of his most reliable defenders will both appear at a Yahoo Finance conference in October, the media organization announced on Wednesday.

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, who considered a Republican primary challenge against Trump and last month called Trump’s criticism of Baltimore “outrageous,” will appear on stage in New York City hours after Eric Trump, Donald Trump’s son and an executive vice president of the Trump Foundation.

Other newly announced attendees include Verizon Communications (VZ) CEO Hans Vestberg, Nasdaq (NDAQ) CEO Adena Friedman, and Citigroup (C) Vice Chairman Ray McGuire. Each will be interviewed onstage by a Yahoo Finance reporter or editor.

Hogan, a baby boomer at age 63, often levels his attacks on Trump in interviews with media outlets; meanwhile, Eric Trump, a millennial at age 35, can be found defending Trump in messages to his 2.6 million Twitter followers.

The event, called the All Markets Summit, will broadly explore the age divide through its theme of “generational opportunities.” Understanding and managing generational differences is essential for businesses and leaders, the event contends, with implications for shareholders, customers and employees.

Yahoo Finance will hold the event in New York City in October.

Vestberg told Yahoo Finance earlier this month that Verizon Communications expects to invest between $17 billion and $18 billion in capital spending this year, as it builds a 5G network. At the event in October, Vestberg will discuss how and why the company has devoted such resources to the network, and what it means for investors and consumers.

“We believe that the quality networks is super important, especially going into 5G,” Vestberg said to Yahoo Finance’s Scott Gamm this month. “So we will just continue to execute on the strategy we have, but, of course, it's a new industry structure we see in front of us.”

Verizon Communications is the parent company of Yahoo Finance.

Friedman, who took over as the President and CEO of Nasdaq in 2017, will speak about markets with Yahoo Finance Editor-in-chief Andy Serwer.

A vice chairman at Citigroup since last year, McGuire will speak to Serwer about how wealth management has changed and will continue to do so for future generations.

The Yahoo Finance All Markets Summit will take place in New York City on October 10 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
