March Madness is the most intense, compelling and unpredictable three weeks of sports in the USA featuring the best of the country’s 68 college basketball teams, and the birthplace of the NBA's future legends. From upsets to buzzer-beaters, nothing matches the agony and ecstasy of college basketball’s season-ending NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament.

YOUR CURATION CONNOISSEUR
Our international network of passionate curation connoisseurs provide unrivalled local knowledge, armed with little black books full of numbers that unlock the most exclusive access and hidden gems; making the impossible possible is what drives them. Challenge us to secure you access to ”the” red carpet event of the season, inside the ropes access to get you closer to your golfing icon, or a tactical pre Super Bowl briefing from an NFL legend.
Each and every one of our curation experiences are truly once-in-a-lifetime experiences for anyone - regardless of your age, color, creed, nationality or gender. However in North America, since I joined the company in March 2001, there has been no sporting event that can compare to the passion & excitement that culminates at the Final Four once March Madness is complete.
