Our Services

Event Planning

  • Customising the event so that its a never before seen experience for every single attendee. Right from planning the entry for the bride to the scripting of the sangeet, we do it all for you. A complete solution.
  • Making sure no two events are even remotely similar, whether it be the theme, the décor or F&B requirements. A wedding is not just about the bride and the groom, and we at Intense cater to everyone right from the requirements of the family sangeet to the food requirements of the children in the family.

Location Scouting

  • Location is the most important part of an event. It influences every other aspect of the experience. A beautiful location is just that if it isn't logistically feasible.
  • Having a beautiful location is a pre requisite to a successful event but apart from it's beauty there are several other factors to be taken into consideration before freezing a location. The location should also have the strength in infrastructure needed to execute the wedding to perfection.

Ground Transportation

  • The first touch point of an event.
  • It’s not just about arranging vehicles. We ensure that we have enough ground personnel to make the first point of contact for an arriving guest efficient, warm and professional.
  • A fully functional travel desk in operation, manned by Intense throughout the duration of the event.
  • Detailed arrival and departure schedules, to ensure all guests are personally received by Intense staff.
  • Not only do we take into consideration the number of people, but also their luggage. At a social event, guests tend to travel heavy. We prepare for the same by arranging luxury sedans and coaches as per their requirements.
  • People tend to panic, especially in a new destination because they are unaware of the designated person assigned to pick them up. We at Intense, make sure each guest receives this information in advance in order to provide a sense of security and safety to them before they arrive.

AIRCRAFT CHARTERING

  • Having selected your dream location the next step is to get all your guests there with minimum inconvenience. If the location selected is not easily accessible, we can charter a flight for you.
  • While chartering an aircraft, a lot of things need to be taken into consideration. Some of the primary things are the number of passengers to be moved, distance to be covered, the refueling and parking, and point of it being cost effective.
  • Chartering an aircraft adds to the luxury of an event. From personalized meals to seat covers, we can do it all.

HOTEL CONTRACTING

  • Choosing the right hotel, just like choosing the location, is of the utmost importance. It is virtually the space all your guests will be confined to for the duration of the event.
  • Just a good room and adequate banquet halls aren't enough. A wedding is a once in a lifetime event and going into the smallest of details ensures a fantastic experience.
  • We at Intense ensure that

  • With one on one contacts with the designers we can have the design house come to you rather than you going to them.

NEK CHAAR
