At Dynamo Camp the Sandoz National Convention

Sandoz at Dynamo Camp 2017

270 participants for the convention Sandoz  held at Dynamo Camp, with the design and realization of Dynamo Academy

The Italian division of Sandoz, a multinational company in the field of pharma, chose to set their annual convention at Dynamo Camp, entrusting the care and planning to Dynamo Academy. About 270 people have lived intensely at the Camp for 3 days, from the 3th to the 5th of April, in an event full of content and with two ambitious goals:

– providing a new approach to work through an experience lived together, a real and immediate opportunity to begin to perceive their role, their company and their colleagues in a different way.

– providing a real and highly addictive context, which materializes the company’s mission to strengthen belonging, motivation and awareness of the values and identity of the company in which you work.

With a very dense agenda,  the event alternated professional meetings  and  experiential team building activities like rock climbing, archery, agility dog, swimming, hip pop and useful work, as well as artistic activities as Art Lab, circus, theater and radio.

“We chose to make our meeting here at Dynamo Camp for the strong bond between our two realities, in terms of values and corporate mission – said Manlio Florenzano, CEO of Sandoz Italy -” I think there is not a team building better than this; the thing that links is not only fun together, or doing something together. What combines people here is to leave aside the unnecessary reflections and to find the essence of the people. Just thinking to the experience together at Dynamo in the future will be enough to return to this spirit. ”


Dynamo Academy is a social enterprise that plans and designs customized team building events, indoor and outdoor experiential training and Corporate Social Responsibility.

Activities can be  held both in the location of Dynamo Camp – in the Apennines close to Pistoia, charming and very well equipped – and Off Camp, for all those organizations that need to held their events elsewhere.

 All the profits made by Dynamo Academy support the project Dynamo Camp, the only camp in Italy which hosts children and teenagers suffering from serious or chronic illnesses for holiday periods.

Dynamo Camp is located in a 1000-hectare estate in a WWF affiliated oasis in the mountains of Pistoia. All the well equipped and functional buildings come from a work of industrial regeneration that made them architecturally unique. The 21 multipurpose meeting rooms can accommodate up to 1,000 people.
