The 26th Annual
Gathering of Games
September 5-7, 2018 | Hilton Anatole Dallas


Join us at the 26th Annual Gathering of Games (September 5-7, 2018) in Dallas, Texas, to recognize the 2018 All-Star Team and the eight All-Star winners, and learn from the 'best of the best'!


At the 26th Annual Gathering of Games Conference, The Great Game of Business will celebrate the 18th Great Game of Business All-Star Team. This prestigious award recognizes and celebrates the remarkable achievements of companies from around the globe that have fully embraced the principles of open-book management and The Great Game of Business, and have demonstrated outstanding results. The inspiration for the All-Star Awards came from the pioneers of open-book management themselves. Want to see last year's All-Star Award winners?

Great Game All-Stars not only practice The Game at a high level, they embody a spirit of generosity and a willingness to openly spread the word to help others succeed. That is the essence of the All-Star Awards!
