20th Annual Value Investor Conference - Omaha

Date: Thursday and Friday, May 4 - 5, 2023

Location: University of Nebraska at Omaha - Mammel Hall and Scott Conference Center


"What a wonderful blend you do offer in Omaha.  "Scholarship first" sets the tone of this wonderful value-investment investigation shared by many. Philanthropic support for the University of Nebraska's mission is a wonderful, caring touch. Finally, camaraderie amongst gathered attendees creates a lasting, learning environment as I know that, over the years, friendships and associations have been securly formed. "...
Tom Russo (2013) Principal and Portfolio Manager, Gardner Russo Gardner

"I just wanted to let you know how valuable I found the programme. The quality of the presenters was exemplary and the presentations extremely relevant. I will certainly endeavour to attend again the next time I'm able to attend the Berkshire Hathaway meeting. (Or, perhaps more accurately, the next time I'm able to attend the VIC I will also drop in to hear what Warren and Charlie have to say.) Thanks again for putting together such an impressive line up."
Richard Whan(2012) Lighthouse Investment Services, NSW Australia

"It is a sacred trust and honor to have a platform for communicating principles which I have been fortunate enough to have received over my career from those whose leads I follow. To do such in a non promotional and thoughtful setting is double the pleasure." - Tom Russo, Principal and Portfolio Manager, Gardner Russo Gardner

"I have to tell you I've been to many similar investor conferences over the years but I've never gotten so much valuable information as I did at the Value Investor Conference. The Berkshire week is valuable not necessarily for the new information you learn but rather for its affirmation of your beliefs and reminder of your responsibilities as a steward of our clients' capital. This conference certainly enhanced the experience."- Brian Massey, CFA, MarVista Investment Partners, Los Angeles

"The Value Investor Conference was like a great movie; the next day you can't get it out of your mind and your appreciation for it continually grows." - Michael O'Mara, Buffalo, NY

"I enjoyed this conference so much that I will attend next year and bring some other Templetons along. This event is just their speed. Every single person we met at the conference was top notch." - Lauren Templeton Chattanooga, TN

"I travel half way around the world to attend this unique conference of value minded investors that span the globe and share my same principles."- Seng Hock Tan CEO, AEGIS, Singapore

"Having attended your conference, I wish two things: that I had participated the last 5 years and that I had not scheduled meetings on the third day. Next year, I am planning to be there for the whole thing." - Guy Spier, Aquamarine Fund

"On behalf of the entire ORBIS team, I want to thank all the attendees of the 2007 Value Investor Conference in Los Angeles for raising $8,500 in much needed funds for ORBIS. We were thrilled to learn that 100% of the proceeds from the auctioning of the FlightSafety simulator rides and sale of A.L. Ueltschi's book is being directed to ORBIS to carry out our sight saving mission via the Flying Eye Hospital and various land-based projects. This generous amount will go a long way toward making a real difference in the lives of people in some of the most under served regions of our world.

I invite you all to visit the ORBIS website for regular updates on our work.  The Flying Eye Hospital occasionally visits the U.S. for maintenance and tours—I would be happy to keep you posted on tour opportunities as they arise.

Thank you again, your efforts helped bring much needed attention to the staggering problem of avoidable blindness in the world and ORBIS's work to remedy the situation.” — Stephanie Mohr, Director, Donor Relations
