eBay: Berkshire Hathaway 2009 Annual Meeting Tickets for $5

Kind of short notice, but as I mentioned before in my Pilgrimage to Warren Buffett’s Omaha book review, Berkshire Hathaway is now selling tickets to their 2009 annual meeting directly on eBay. You get two tickets for only $5 in Buy It Now format, including free shipping.

All buyers receive two (2) Berkshire Hathaway 2009 Annual Shareholder Meeting Tickets and Visitor’s Guide. Please provide a mailing address when you checkout.

These tickets are being offered directly by Berkshire Hathaway Inc. in response to others who are selling tickets on Ebay.

The meeting is on Saturday, May 2nd at the Qwest Center in Omaha, Nebraska. There are some additional activities on Friday and Sunday as well. If you are a BRK shareholder, you should have gotten your 2009 annual report in March, which had a postcard to mail back in order to get tickets. Hmm… maybe I’ll get to see Warren Buffett next year.

  1. Make sure you hit Barry O’s in the Old Market to have a beer which is near the Qwest Center.

  2. That famous furniture store! ;)

  3. I grew up in Omaha. In fact Gorat’s (The Steakhouse Warren Buffett likes) is in my old neighborhood. Last time I went there for lunch he had a group of college kids there meeting with him.

    If anyone has any questions about Omaha, let me know. As previously mentioned, the old market is a great place to hang out, and while you are there, check out the Zoo. It is without a doubt one of the best Zoos in the world. Omaha is a really great town. I’d still live there but for the winters.

  4. I live in Omaha and have always wanted to go. This year I’ll be attendance, with the help of your blog. Thanks!

  5. Cool post,

    If you come to Omaha for the shareholders weekend, you should check out the Berkshire Weekend Event blog. I am one of the writes and we try to highlight all the best activities going on during the weekend and the best spots in Omaha. There are also some new construction and parking issues this year you should check out. If you are interested, check it out our blog at http://www.borsheimsbrk.com.

    Maybe, I’ll see you at the shareholder’s weekend.

  6. Glad I could help, Steve! I wish lived within driving distance, otherwise I’d go as well.

    Bill – Looks interesting, do you work at Borshiem’s Jewelry?

  7. Oh thanks! Now I can get my tickets through eBay!

  8. Hey Jonathan,

    I work for a marketing company here in Omaha that does some work and Web stuff for Borsheims. But the weekend is really fun and it doesn’t really feel like work at all.

    Best,
    Bill

  9. This is a meeting for shareholders and I seriously doubt that Berkshire Hathaway would SELL tickets to its annual meeting. If anyone wants to go to the annual meeting, they should either buy a share of BRK.B or go as a guest of another shareholder, not buy tickets off of Ebay!
