Ezon is adept at planning bespoke trips, but has made his name by organizing dozens of global celebrations each year. His little black book of event contacts, from the best florists in Rome to choice wedding photographers in the South of France, gives him his competitive edge, as does a team of dedicated party planners that includes a romance concierge for honeymoons and anniversaries. Ezon is also an expert on Gen-Y and Gen-X vacationers, a fast-growing segment of the travel market. Though these younger travelers traditionally like to be heavily involved in trip planning, he notes a growing number are handing the reins entirely over to his team: “Even the Millennials are burned out on the DIY model.”

Excited About: Clients are willing to splurge when access is a concern, Ezon notes, but they’re still looking for good values, especially during the shoulder season. “They have no qualms pushing for the best price they can get.”
