Mudra Connext assigned media mandate for Travelguru; ac size upwards of Rs 10 cr

Mudra Connext, a unit of Mudra MAX (Integrated Communications Planning & Implementation) has been chosen to handle the media mandate for travel portal Travelguru. The account size is estimated at upwards of Rs 10 crore and the operations will be carried out of the agency’s Mumbai office.

On awarding the media business to Mudra Connext, Praveen Meloth, AVP-Marketing, Travelguru, said, “We were always in a hunt for an agency with the right approach, which accepts challenges and proves itself by way of its work. We look forward to Mudra Connext bringing innovative thinking and a strategic direction to the brand. We are confident that Connext, with their category experience and capabilities across all media formats, will help us optimally spread our message and reach out to our customers across the country.”

Commenting on the win, Manas Mishra, EVP & Country Head, Mudra Connext, said, “It is an exciting category. Building awareness and identity for Travelguru, a hotels and resorts portal, would be a major task. We need to create a distinct identity for the brand as all travel portals are often dedicated to flight bookings.”
