The 27th Annual Gathering of Games is the ultimate destination for anyone looking to begin or improve their open-book management journey.
Taking place at Dallas’ famous Hilton Anatole, the conference opens with breakfast on Thursday, September 5th and the day is JAM-PACKED with keynote presentations, educational breakouts, interactive sessions, All-Star highlights, and networking opportunities. The action continues early on Friday, September 6th, and concludes by 1pm, allowing you to get on the road/in the air and get home for the weekend (or stay in Dallas and enjoy extended hotel discounts!).
