We’re a small team so when you work with us, you’ll be working with the people who live and breathe their business and who take the time to get things right and make sure you’re right there with us on the journey.

We pride ourselves on excellent communication and have a big focus on collaboration, keeping it real, and having fun along the way.

We like to use a four-stage approach with our clients:

The first thing we do at OneNineFive is sit down with you to understand your objectives and vision and what the success would ‘look’ like.  This Establishment Phase is an important part of creating success and the best events and experiences always start with a great conversation.

Once we’ve talked, we’ll get down to the nitty-gritty of the Design Phase - a fully integrated approach - research, strategy, design, creative, engagement… whatever is needed to ensure we deliver great ideas to you, creative enough to surprise you and yet practical enough to give comfort. 

The Engagement Phase is where we put all the components together. Our hand-picked global supplier network ensure we secure the best and most suitable air, sea and ground arrangements, and we’ll work with you to ensure your health, safety and security is paramount from beginning to end. 

The Delivery Phase is where those on the event or experience share a moment in time they will never forget.  You’ll have (at a minimum) a dedicated Experience & Event Manager with you. Working with them – and subject to your end destination - will be a hand-picked OneNineFive team with an in-depth knowledge of your objectives, group management, health, safety and security of your destination.

Let's talk!
