The New Meeting Guide is Here!

Monday, April 3rd, 2017

This is how I’m feeling today!

The New Phonebooks are Out

I’m not sure what it is about the annual meeting guide’s first appearance in my mailbox each year, but it does make me believe that, in the words of Navin R. Johnson, “I’m somebody now!”

All joking aside, the arrival of the annual meeting guide is always exciting because we get an official rundown of Berkshire Hathaway shareholder weekend fun. And a glimpse of the theme of each year’s meeting. This year’s cover is very fun!

Read through it, Berkies, and make sure to ask me any questions you may have.

We have a special treat for Berkshire Hathaway shareholders today. How about a sneak peek of the 2016 Visitor’s Guide!?!

Visitor's GuideWe’ve linked to it on the right hand side of this page.

Or you can just click here to see it, too.

If you don’t have time to peruse it now, I can tell you that it is very similar to guides from prior years. One thing did catch my eye… Fruit of the Loom may have outdone themselves this year. Check out their ad from the 2016 Visitor’s Guide. Happy reading!

The Berkshire Hathaway Weekend Visitor’s Guide is Here!

Thursday, March 19th, 2015

We are always so excited to get our hands on the copy of the Berkshire Hathaway shareholders’ weekend Visitor’s Guide when it comes out each year. It is packed full of great information about the weekend, and always has a few fun surprises in it.

(This year, I was surprised to see that Fruit of the Loom is selling Berkshire Hathaway bras!)

Layout 1 The logistics of much of the weekend are the same as in past years, although there are a few changes. The biggest is the shareholder shopping hours at the CenturyLink Center on Friday, which we knew about a few weeks ago.

You can see from the Visitor’s Guide that Berkshire Hathaway and all its subsidiaries are going all-in on the Golden Jubilee theme! You’ll see a lot of black and gold and 50! You’ll especially see a lot of gold from our crew at Borsheims.

You can wait for the Visitor’s Guide to land in your mailbox when your passes and lanyards come in a few weeks or you can click here and peruse the guide now. We always have the Visitor’s Guide on the right-hand side of the blog, too, so you can easily access it.

Even though we’ve been doing this for years, we find the guide incredibly helpful now and throughout the weekend. We can’t encourage you enough to take a look at it and then bring it with you when you visit Omaha!

The #BRK2014 Visitor’s Guide is Out!

Friday, March 21st, 2014

You know we are getting close to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders weekend when the Visitor’s Guide is revealed. We are always anxious to see it for a few reasons: 1) it unveils this year’s Berkshire theme, and 2) it details all the fun events scheduled for the weekend.

You can read it over yourself here or it’s always available on the right hand side of our website.

See if you can guess the theme.

It’s baseball!

How cute is the Geico Gecko with the baseball bat!?! And Heinz gets some front-and-center attention.

We have a few baseball-related ideas up our sleeve for the weekend, too. Plus, we have had baseball on our minds here at Borsheims (even in the midst of March Madness).

Look what we just designed and presented:

The Omaha Storm Chasers were the 2013 Triple A National Champions. We designed the rings and presented them to the team and staffers this past week. It was so fun!

Sing it with us… “Take me out to the ballgame Berkshire Hathaway weekend!”

Six weeks from today, shareholders! Six weeks!

The Visitor’s Guides are out!

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

Or at least the electronic version is ready to go! If you’re coming to this year’s Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholders’ meeting, you’ll enjoy checking out this year’s visitor’s guide now.

Assembled by Warren Buffett’s wonderful staff at Berkshire Hathaway headquarters here in Omaha, the guide is a great overview of everything that’s going on during Berkshire Hathaway shareholders’ weekend.

We have the download-friendly pdf right here.

In it, you will find information on hotels, restaurants and activities taking place during the shareholder weekend. The guide also contains the official schedule of events for the weekend, shuttle information and details on shareholder shopping periods.

You can see from the cover of the guide that this year’s theme is Planes, Trains and Automobiles. (Did you know there’s a theme for each year’s Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholders’ meeting?) At Borsheims, we try to ensure our decor and memorabilia reflect the theme. The shareholder passes do, too.

We’ll be unveiling our 2011 Berkshire Hathaway memorabilia here soon, but until then, enjoy a little light reading to get you excited for your trip to Omaha!

Berkshire Meeting Questions

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

Hello Weekenders,

As Berkshire Weekend approaches, it seems as if the whole world is looking for a little bit of Warren Buffett’s wisdom. Everyone seems to have questions for the “Oracle of Omaha.” Well shareholders, this weekend is your chance to get your questions answered! The Q & A period with Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger will begin at 9:30 a.m. this Saturday. It will last until 2010 Visitor's Guidearound 3:30 p.m. with an hour lunch break at noon.

The format for asking questions is a little different this year than it has been in the past, so I thought that I would share the format style with all of our readers. The following description comes from the 2010 Visitor’s Guide:
Financial journalists from organizations representing newspapers, magazines and television will participate in the question-and-answer period, asking Charlie and me questions that shareholders have submitted by e-mail. The journalists and their e-mail addresses are: Carol Loomis, of Fortune, who may be emailed at cloomis@fortunemail.com; Becky Quick, of CNBC, at BerkshireQuestions@cnbc.com, and Andrew Ross Sorkin, of The New York Times, at arsorkin@nytimes.com. From the questions submitted, each journalist will choose the dozen or so he or she decides are the most interesting and important. (In your e-mail, let the journalist know if you would like your name mentioned if your question is selected.)

Neither Charlie nor I will get so much as a clue about the questions to be asked. We know the journalists will pick some tough ones and that’s the way we like it. We will have a drawing at 8:15 at each of the 13 microphones for those shareholders wishing to ask questions themselves. At the meeting, I will alternate the questions asked by the journalists with those from the winning shareholders. We’ve added 30 minutes to the question time and will probably have time for about 30 questions from each group.

Microphone Manners
When asking a question from a microphone zone, please:
  • State your name and hometown.
  • Ask your question promptly – speak loud & clear.
  • Do not ask more than one question or attempt to “bundle” several questions together.
  • Do not ask what we are buying or selling. Even if the information is public, we do not discuss how we arrive at our decisions. Any other subjects are fair game.
So, make sure to get your questions mailed in ahead of time.

See you Saturday morning,

Bill, the blogger
