Imagine a total contrast to the traditional off-site retreat and meeting venue. A setting where ASPIRATION is never-ending, the PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE is constant, and the culture represents the living manifestation of everything you want your team to be.
Imagine having full access to some of the WORLD’S FOREMOST PERFORMANCE SPECIALISTS -- with expertise in critical areas like high-performance mindset, leadership, and communication -- and a delivery that promotes activity and engagement for TANGIBLE, LONG-LASTING RESULTS. And, if that’s not enough, IMG Academy is part of sports and entertainment leader Endeavor, providing you access to GLOBAL TALENT for your event.
Imagine taking your TEAM-BUILDING GOALS outside of the conventional featureless conference room and onto the same fields and courts that have produced countless world champions.
Imagine not worrying about any of your retreat logistics and putting the details of the occasion in the capable hands of an organization that has HOSTED COUNTLESS PRESTIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS.
This is reality at IMG Academy. If you are ready for a memorable, HIGH-IMPACT EXPERIENCE for your team, IMG Academy will curate a custom event to meet the highest standards.

"The IMG Academy corporate retreat was an invaluable experience for our team. As a brand rooted in sport and performance, we appreciated how challenging, engaging, and thought-provoking the activities and mental exercises were. The positive effects from this experience, and the sense of alignment and team development we walked away with, not only continued after we left Bradenton, but rippled to other cross-functions teams that we work closely with."
