Mr. Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. said Tuesday its annual shareholder meeting, which pre-pandemic would regularly bring tens of thousands of people together in Omaha, Neb., will be held in person for the first time since 2019. The event is scheduled for April 30.
The in-person event will also be a webcast for those who wish to watch remotely, the company said. The meeting was held virtually for the past two years.
Prominent live events in the business world in recent months have either been postponed or changed amid the spread of Omicron. The World Economic Forum, an annual event in Davos, Switzerland, where some of the world’s most well-known business leaders usually gather, was postponed last month and pushed back until early summer.
