Every episode will follow 3 story lines (requests): 1 major stand alone request — An outrageous request from a member usually in Los Angeles. The stakes are high and our member has pushed this to high priority.

2 smaller stand alone requests —screen-shot-2017-09-30-at-10-30-40-am-copy These requests start and end at two different times throughout the day. With Agents all over Los Angeles, they will meet their Member’s demand quickly.

 

 

A few examples of real requests:

fireworks

“I had a very interesting request this week.  A client from Saudi Arabia wants to break the world record set in the Philippines for a fireworks display, so he requested a rehearsal.  I sourced the fireworks from China, had an explosive pyrotechnical expert flown in from the UK and stationed water tankers, just in case, along the Dubai Creek.  All went as planned so he will have an amazing New Year celebration.” 

 

 

 

heliskiing
“My client wanted to do a multi-day heli-skiing safari in Zermatt, so in addition to the helicopter daily, I had to arrange for his luggage to be transported from village to village, and hotel to hotel. He’s asked me to arrange for skiing the pistes at St. Moritz next.”

“My client’s daughter is interested in modeling, so I arranged not only for her VIP attendance at the Essential Herzigova fashion show in Kazakhstan, but also for her to appear on the runway as one of the featured models.”

Dinner on an iceberg? 10 albino peacocks for a cocktail party? No problem … Concierge
