The energy and events the international extravaganza brings to the company’s headquarters location makes it an exciting time for both Arlington team members and residents of the group’s properties in the Magic City.


The Games, which are showcasing 3,600 of the world’s best athletes in 30-plus unique, multi-disciplinary sports, from Boules to DanceSport with all manner of ball sports, martial arts, and more in between, are also an historic event; the competition hasn’t been in the United States since it was first held in Santa Clara, California, in 1981.


When you’re not watching competition at an elite level, you can play hometown tourist!

Check out the Birmingham Convention & Visitors Bureau suggested itineraries for World Games visitors, and make plans to finally visit gems like the Birmingham Botanical Gardens and the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum.

Then avail yourself of the city’s diverse and delightful food scene and craft beers from local breweries.
