New call-to-action

1st pet vet stats

The Great Game of Business has really affected the way I think about the business, I have begun to think about what every choice I make here affects the company. I also feel much more involved in the financial growth of the company which brings me a lot of pride.”

Introducing the Hybrid Conference


Building on the success of 27 years of IRL (In Real Live) conferences and last year's 100% virtual Great Game Conference, we're excited to introduce our first ever "Hybrid" event! 


In 2021, you have the choice of joining us in-person in Dallas (we can't wait to see our old friends and make new ones!!) or log in to the event from the comfort of your home or office.  We've designed both the Dallas Experience and the Digital Experience to fully maximize the user experience regardless of mode of attendance.




The Dallas Experience


We are more EXCITED than ever before to bring the community together in Dallas! There’s an undeniable, invigorating “magic” created when Great Game™ practitioners gather together to collaborate, learn from each other and challenge the status quo.  Coming to Dallas is your opportunity to make personal connections with like-minded business people who believe in the entrepreneurial spirit of all employees.


While you're in Dallas, you'll not only experience the in-person excitement of keynotes and breakout sessions, but we are putting extra effort into developing meaningful connections between participants through crowdsourced sessions, small group discussions, hands-on activities, structured networking activities, and everyone's favorite - the Dine Around.


AND THIS YEAR, THE EXTRAS ARE INCLUDED!  We’re so excited to meet in-person that we're giving every Dallas Experience ticket a half-day workshop and a ticket to our always-popular networking reception AT NO ADDITIONAL COST.


"REST ASSURED that we are taking coronavirus - and your health - very seriously. We are working closely with the Hilton Anatole Dallas, who has enacted enhanced disinfecting and serving protocols in partnership with the maker of Lysol. We have been and will continue to monitor announcements and recommendations from local, state, and national health officials and will take any necessary measures to protect our guests, staff, and vendors."

- Kristi Stringer, Conference Manager



The Digital Experience


Not ready or able to travel to Dallas? Not to worry! We’ll bring the conference to you!


Building on what we learned from our cutting-edge all-virtual conference in 2020, we are offering a virtual experience in tandem with the in-person event. Virtual attendees will have access to all our mainstage livestreams, plus select breakout sessions and virtual-only sessions, roundtables, and networking events designed exclusively for the virtual audience.


You won't be a fly on the wall in our virtual conference!  The Digital Experience is focused on our remote attendees, with well-produced, interactive breakout and live roundtable discussions designed to maximize the virtual experience.
