2016 Shareowner Day Coca-Cola bottle

The Coca-Cola Company's 2016 Shareowner Day was held April 27, 2016 at the World of Coca-Cola.

That was 5 years ago and it was my first shareholder meeting.

The shareholder meeting was held at the World of Coca-Cola and after the meeting, pre-registered shareholders and their invited guests toured the museum.

I met up with Ted Ryan and Jamal Booker with the Coca-Cola Archives.  They were the stewards of the vast collection of company artifacts.  In fact the World of Coca-Cola was custom-built to share the 130-year history of its iconic heritage with the public.

I also took pictures with the 7-foot-tall Polar Bear mascot and lounged on the American Idol's couch during the self-guided tour.

At the end of the visit, each guest received a special event gift for shareholders - a commemorative Coca-Cola bottle.

The 8oz wrapped glass bottle features the updated disc design and the slogan "TASTE THE FEELING."  On the heel of the bottle, the text reads: "2016 Shareowner Day April 27, 2016 World of Coca-Cola."   The backside has the nutritional facts label for Coke® original formula.  No UPC. GAN 2014-02043.

Oh and I also met up with another fellow shareholder who attended the meeting - Reverend Jessie Jackson. He autographed my copy of the company 10K report.
