Lifestyle Management Services

As the demands of a vigorous work cycle can lead many to fall behind in various aspects of day-to-day life, many companies like Zocha Group have stepped forward to reduce these stresses by way of offering lifestyle management services. While having one personal assistant can be helpful, hiring a full team of experts allows even more access to benefits that can enhance your life.

Hospitality

Long gone are the days of calling a restaurant yourself to set up a reservation. While online booking platforms can streamline the process, letting us take the reins can lead to perks you’d never receive on your own. Last minute reservations can be hard to come by at in-demand establishments. With active connections to the industry, we can make quality arrangements that seemed to be impossible.

Nightlife can also be a tricky industry to maneuver when you have high expectations for a fun night on the town. Skip the hassle of tracking down the right contact at a venue and let us handle it for you. Before you know it, breezing into a nightclub with your own prime location table becomes the norm, leaving you to enjoy worry-free outings.

Entertainment

We aren’t just limited to reservations, but can also arrange hard to come by tickets for a variety of events. From sports games to live shows, we have the know-how to arrange your perfect night out. Sporting events have box seating and premium tickets that may not be available to you when you reach out on your own. Concerts may advertise a sold out show, but still have a reserve of tickets that only those in their network can access. Zocha Group knows exactly what to do to put you in those seats and allow you to have the time of your life.

From flights to hotels to transportation, a great deal of planning can go into organizing the perfect travel experience. The number of options available for accommodations is infinite, and it can oftentimes be difficult to narrow down which ones are right for you. With Zocha Group to step in and make recommendations, you’ll never have to worry about being disappointed with your stay. It’s our job to know the best of the best in each aspect of travel—we do the research so that you don’t have to. Instead of spending your time scrolling through endless lists of hotels or flights, we’ll do the groundwork to ensure your expectations are surpassed.

Our lifestyle management services take the burden off of corporate lifestyle arrangements to allow you to focus on work. You may not be aware of available discounts or packages that can help you stay within budget, but someone familiar with the process knows exactly what to look for.
