Warren Buffett Headlines at NY Auto Show Automotive Forum 1

Warren Buffett, the world’s most famous investor, will keynote at this year’s NADA, J.D. Power, and New York International Automobile Show Automotive Forum on March 31 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Manhattan. Buffett is Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. The one-day event brings together leaders from OEMs, suppliers, and the media to discuss how industry and economic conditions will shape the future. “Having recently agreed to buy the Van Tuyl Group, the largest privately owned auto dealership group in the U.S. and stat- ing that he fully expects to buy a lot more dealerships over time, Warren Buffett is our industry’s most high-profile dealer. Nobody in the auto industry should miss his remarks at this year’s Forum,” said GNYADA Chairman Bob Vail. In addition to Buffett, the Automotive Forum will offer a mixture of keynote addresses and panel discussions. Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen, IHS Chief Economist Nariman Behravesh, and CNBC Squawk Box Co-anchor Becky Quick are just some of the industry experts who will go beyond the headlines and explore how recent developments will impact all aspects of the auto industry.
