The 10th Annual Value Investor Conference is scheduled for May 2-3, 2013 and is just before the Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE:BRK.A) (NYSE:BRK.B) annual meeting kicks off.
The Value Investor Conference will be held at the University of Nebraska – Omaha, College of Business, Mammel Hall. The event gives new value investors an opportunity to interact with and learn from Warren Buffett’s CEOs, successful money managers, private investors, security analysts, stock brokers, business journalists and best-selling authors from 18 countries across the globe.
Interacting with other like-minded people, investors receive alternative perspectives and insight into the unique processes used by other successful investors. In fact, it’s a self-selected investment group that focuses on qualitative and quantitative aspects of investing.
According to the conference director Robert Miles, the conference speakers represent the Charlie Munger’s multidisciplinary approach to investing, business and management.
