IMG is a producer-driven and producer-focused company. We are focused on growing and developing alongside our producers. One way we encourage continuous improvement and sales growth is through our lucrative producer bonus program. This unique bonus program gives you the opportunity to not only earn an annual cash bonus, but if you qualify at the Platinum Level, you will also receive an invitation to our exclusive Platinum Getaway trip.
Years ago, incentive trips were common to provide the year's top earners as a gracious 'thank you' and opportunity to engage with company leadership. IMG is one of the few companies that still offers the incentive of a Platinum Getaway trip. Our trip is packed with value, primarily through relationship building and strategic business discussions. Not to mention, the last Platinum Getaway was hosted in beautiful Panama! At the getaway, IMG provided the Platinum Producers with in-depth meetings to discuss the following topics:
- IMG State of the Union – 2018 Review and 2019 Goals
- Compliance and Governance
- Building Through Producer Recruitment
- Website Tools and Digital Strategy
- Executive Advisory Sessions
“My favorite part of the getaway is the one-on-one time we get to spend with the IMG executives. I truly feel like my voice can be heard and valued”- Platinum Producer
2019 Platinum Getaway Recap
After our meetings in the morning, the IMG staff, Platinum Producers, and their guests headed out for some fun and explored Panama through several different excursions and cultural events.
We toured the Panama Canal which included a visit to the Canal's museum. We also watched several ships pass through, which was breathtaking.
We spent another afternoon exploring the “Old City” of Panama – Casco Viejo. Our walking tour took us to many different destinations from architecture under renovation to churches in pristine beauty. Due to its UNESCO status, the buildings are restored to their colonial designs and original pastel colors. We tried Panamanian Coffee, snacks, and did some souvenir shopping for our loved ones at home.
We experienced authentic Panamanian Food at a local restaurant in downtown Panama City. We were treated to live music and dancing from a local performing group, and even got invited on stage to dance for the last song.
On our final full day, we traveled to the Gamboa Rainforest. Some of us had to hold our breath as we ascended above the rainforest canopy in a 30-minute gondola ride. Once we reached the top, we continued even higher up to the 100-foot lookout tower to see the entire rainforest.
After the rainforest tour, we explored the resort’s botanical gardens, butterfly farm, frog garden, and the Sloth Sanctuary. The sloths were quite active for our visit. Turns out – they are slow in nature because they do not eat enough nutrients.
Finally, we took a boat ride to monkey island in Gatun Lake. We came face to face with local wildlife – monkeys, toucans and crocodiles.
Closing & Announcement for the 2020 Platinum Getaway
