Berkshire Hathaway (Warren Buffett's) -their annual meeting lasts for an entire week-end! About 12,000 people traveled to Omaha for the gathering this year. The meeting was held at the Omaha Civic Auditorium, and when you entered, you felt you had reached the Mall of America. All of the companies he owns display their products which are for sale. Each Berkshire conference opens with a home spun movie, in which Buffett pokes fun at himself. In this year's film, Buffett appeared as Tiger Woods' caddy, drawing huge laughs from the audience. Buffett spends only about 10 minutes on the business meeting and then uses the rest of the time to talk about stocks and investing. I have friends who own Class B shares and they attend each year. They say they get a wonderful learning experience from the "master" himself and they also love all the wonderful food served.

That sounds like fun!

Thanks for posting your overview Kathy. I'm hoping to attend my first shareholder meeting in 2002 - depending on schedules. Right now PepsiCo (PEP) is the closest, but I could stretch myself to Johnson & Johnson (JNJ). But is Pepsi holds it in Texas again, I'll have to pass again.
