Star brands continue to be Travesías—specializing in travel and luxury—as well as Gatopardo, where Latin America’s most celebrated journalists and writers cover everything that matters on the current scene, and LOCAL.MX, the round-up of Mexico City’s very best, now an eagerly awaited “yearbook” of urban life and culture. Atelier—whose goal is communication solutions, custom-designed for every client’s specific needs—is taking on new importance as a forum for content-generation, video and photo production, design and art direction, programming, web-content-generation, print media and point-of-sale distribution, with a special focus on luxury brands, travel services, destinations, businesses, the automotive sector, fashion and culture.

On 2016 Club Travesías was launched as a spinoff. A membership based experience club where members are given access to unique experiences delivered by the strong network of artists, architects, chefs, historians and cultural actors built over the years.

At the helm of Travesías Media is entrepreneur Javier Arredondo, the group’s founder and president, who enjoys more than 18 years of experience in the media and tourism sectors and who has specialized in travel-related communications strategies. Additionally, Arredondo is an active yearly participant at numerous international travel forums and continues to be responsible for developing Travesías Media’s strategic partnerships.

Back when Javier was thirteen, he started his first business alongside his best friend, to earn money and travel to Europe. From that point forward he knew that travel would be both a lifestyle and a career. Years later he became Content Director at Viajo.com, a leading travel segment website.
At Viajo.com, Arredondo directed editorial teams in Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Chile and the US. Then, amid the dot-com bust of the late 90s, he put a new spin on his travel passion and experience, and together with Enrique Felgueres and Guillermo Osorno launched his renowned independent project: Travesías magazine.

In his role as an entrepreneur, Arredondo enjoys support from partners Antonio García, the group’s CEO, and Luz Arredondo, who serves as Director of Communications and Creative Partnerships. All three work directly with the Travesías team of more than ninety talented professionals.
