Everybody loves to get entertained as personal immersion comes through an enchanting experience of highly entertaining events. Although, at its core, entertaining others is an art of the highest degree, if crafted by those who innately resonate with all the subtle elements of love, passion, compassion, artistry, craftsmanship, and enticing ideas—the events will live in the participants’ hearts forever—as memories to be cherished for eternity.
An imaginative and curious mind can come up with a thousand alluring ideas. And suppose there is a matching indomitable and resolute willpower supporting the most significant ideas. In that case, they can be transformed into a reality of mesmerizingly vibrant and entertaining events of the lifetime for the lively audience. Or, as in the precise words of Scott Belly, the Author, and American Entrepreneur, “It’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen.”
The famous quote has actually made Deepak Chaudhary, the Director of WoodCraft Events & Entertainment, believe in Making Ideas Happen along with the Hunger for Making a Difference in others’ lives.
Deepak quotes, “I believe every challenge out there is an Opportunity.” When you see things through different lenses, you find opportunities in every situation of your life. “Maybe this is the reason why I never considered any situation challenging; rather, I have focused on finding a solution rather an Idea which is nothing but a Hidden Opportunity,” adds Deepak.
A Professional Odyssey
Deepak started his journey in 1999 with the hat of a freelancer; as early as 16 years of age, he incepted WoodCraft in 2012 – bootstrapped with a few thousand rupees. He indeed stepped into this creative industry while waiting for his final results of class 10!
“As a young boy, I fell in love with this profession from the very first bijou outdoor campaign on the outskirts of Varanasi. I grabbed everything that could shape the versatility towards the robustness of my aspirations,” reflects Deepak.
Empowered by the priceless experience and know-how of more than a decade and different geographies of PAN India, Deepak grew Woodcraft into one of the well reputed and well-known BTL activation and event management solution providers in the capital city of Bollywood in a short span of time.
Realizing Priceless Dreams
Deepak expresses, “I just pursued my happiness, and eventually realized my dream to have a small, bespoke yet passionate and experienced team with a strong creative twist.”

Along with this vision, we aim to create a meaningful difference in customers’ life by doing different things indifferently.
