How To Attend Berkshire Hathaway 2024

How To Attend The Berkshire Hathaway 2024 Annual Meeting

I explain how to attend the Berkshire Hathaway 2024 Annual Shareholders Meeting in Omaha to see Warren Buffett live! May the Force Be With You on May the 4th!

I share a quick update on how to attend this year’s Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholders meeting in Omaha, Nebraska during the weekend of May 4, 2024!

The Berkshire Hathaway 2024 Annual Shareholders Meeting is happening at the CHI Health Center convention center at 455 North 10th Street, Omaha, Nebraska, 68102.

In order to attend the annual Berkshire meeting, you should own at least one share of Berkshire Hathaway stock. It can be either in the form of the Berkshire A share ($600,000) or the Berkshire B share ($400).

The best way to attend is to be an actual Berkshire shareholder where you can get up to 4 meeting credentials. But if you are not able to be a shareholder, perhaps you know someone like a family member or friend who might be willing to give you a meeting credential which is your ticket into the meeting and exhibit hall.

Since past Berkshire Hathaway meetings have drawn crowds of 40,000 people, you want to be proactive and get your credentials ASAP.

You can get your meeting credentials by mail or by will call. If you don’t have the credentials on you, you can go to the Will Call area in the CHI Health Center lobby with proof of ownership and photo ID.

The way to get the credentials ahead of time is via the proxy materials as part of being a shareholder, which should have appeared in your brokerage account in March.

Then you need to locate the proxy materials in your brokerage account, usually near where you would vote on company proposals among proxy documents. There is an annual meeting credential order form that you should fill out and return to the address provided. You should receive the meeting credentials and a visitor’s pamphlet after about a week in my experience.

Check out the full Berkshire 2024 Visitor Guide here.

If you are having difficulties, reach out to your brokerage’s Corporate Actions team or Berkshire’s investor relations to help you locate the proxy materials.

While you’re looking at the proxy materials, you can also read the 2023 annual report and Warren Buffett’s 2023 annual letter to shareholders that came out in February 2024. Feel free to watch my summary of the letter!

Some of the weekend festivities include the Berkshire “Bazaar of Bargains” on Friday, May 3, the actual meeting on Saturday, May 4, and the 5K or Borsheims activities on Sunday, May 5, 2024.

The shareholder shopping is happening at the CHI Health Center Exhibit Hall, and there are discounts at Berkshire’s subsidiaries like Nebraska Furniture Mart (NFM) and Borsheims. I highly recommend the now $6 (used to be $5) BBQ Meal at the NFM Picnic.

The agenda for Berkshire’s May 4 main event is as follows:
Doors Open 7am
Company Movie 8:45am
Question and Answer 9:15am-4pm *This is the main reason you come, to see Buffett share his wisdom!
Business Meeting 4pm
NFM Picnic 5:30pm-8pm

CNBC is streaming the meeting live at Ask Becky Quick your questions at!

From first hand experience having gone twice, I was able to bring a personal size backpack to collect all my souvenirs.

I highly recommend the Heartland Bcycle to get around the city of Omaha on a speedy electric bike, there’s a discount code of BRK2024 on their monthly pass.

There are so many free investor events you can check out, I found that I didn’t have to pay to attend any offshoot events.

The Berkshire Hathaway Meeting is one of the best experiences to be among like-minded investors. I was grateful to see Charlie Munger for the last time in 2023.
