"Itchy Feet..get ready for a wild vacation"..Economic Times does a short story on The Wanderers in their special 2012 Edition "Firms that make fun"
A few days before the launch of a TV channel, when the company decided to take the entire team on a muchneeded vacation, it wanted the outing to be action-packed, in keeping with the content and culture of the channel. So they hired The Wanderers to plan the whole thing. More
Diwali 2010 saw us launch our Events arm of the business- Ace of Wands (AOW). We wanted to bring about a sharper focus in our travel business under the brand name of The Wanderers while expanding our scope of work in Events and Entertainment. Over the last few years, we had ventured into Events while executing our corporate orders and saw the immense scope of work in the business. We, however, felt the need to bring about sharper focus and differentiate the two brands clearly in terms of what they stood for.
While The Wanderers continues to focus on travels to lesser known exotic destinations, Ace of Wands will bring fresh and unique ideas to the table and will stand out for its execution excellence. AOW will focus on medium to large format events. It is headed by Manoj Mallick with many years of experience in the events business having worked on 3 consecutive Filmfare Awards and IFFI Goa to name a few. AOW works from its office in 111A Kartik Complex, New Link Road, Opp Laxmi Industrial Area, Near Lokhandwala, Andheri (W), Mumbai 400053. Tel: +919819999390
