For all celebrities, getting ready for an amazing red carpet or party is just part of their glamorous lifestyle. And now we all can live that life with the help of Wanderluxxe, a luxury film festival concierge service founded by film industry veterans and event producers, Marti Hines and Lola Wood who grant access to the world’s most exclusive film festivals. Check out how after the jump!
When it comes to parties and film festivals that all the stars frequent, we see the pictures and live through their Instagram and Snapchat and wish we could be there side by side. But now those dreams can be reality as we can live the life of a Hollywood star as WanderLuxxe caters specifically to film festival participants and attendees by creating one-of-a-kind, all access experiences for WanderLuxxe members and clients, which range from individuals to production companies and brand partners. Pretty awesome right!
But to learn even more, here is how it works. WanderLuxxe is able to fit individual needs by customizing its offerings to create top level activations and on-site access to exclusive happenings, premieres and events…as well as handle all travel requirements through their dedicated concierge system. They gain exclusive party invites and screening tickets to the best events, it is that simple. And the ones that benefit are you and your friends!

Wanderluxxe’s Marti Hines and Lola Wood Talk To HollywoodLife.com!
Who is responsible for what?
Lola: We’ve been so busy with the start up that we have really been hands on with everything and both making all decisions. I’m generally tasked with working with our accountant, PR team and web and digital designers. Because of her industry relationships, Marti is the point person on what we can offer WanderLuxxers and making sure we can follow through with what we’ve promised.
How do you as a company divide your tasks?
Marti: I focus on securing high level events for WL, new clients, and sponsors. Lola leads up all operational and logistical pieces to the puzzle.
Is there an office you go to, a meeting place?
Marti: We meet at Soho House in the mornings after Lola drops her son off at Montesorri school.
Lola: We generally meet for coffee, which could end up lunch and sometimes even drinks. But we’re always working – even at the nail salon.
What is a typical Wanderluxxe day?
Marti: We break up the day with planning for the next event or experience, brainstorming the next hit event, and business development.
Lola: There’s no such thing as typical! Every day is something new. We generally start out with emails and reviewing what was presented the day before. Sometimes we are updating each other on a phone call. Often we divide tasks on that morning call and update each other over the course of the day.
What are examples of some of the calls you make, people you reach out to?
Marti: We usually have calls with different festival programmers, our travel coordinator, potential sponsors and existing sponsors.
Lola: We have been talking to a lot of potential partners. Then of course, venues, vendors and our extended team.
Do you have a motto or work ethic?
Marti: Work hard, play harder!
Lola: I don’t know if we have a motto per se. I say all the time: everything will work out. Because it has to. But also, we’ve actually had a lot of early success to and see WanderLuxxe being even more successful in the future.
How do you see Wanderluxxe growing as company?
Marti: The sky is the limit! We are so excited with where WanderLuxxe has taken us so far we are trying to stay open to every growth opportunity in this first year. We’ll see what’s in store!
Lola: I see WanderLuxxe being a well recognized brand with a reputation of providing access to high-end luxury experiences.
Now with all that being said, here is some of the festivals and parties they have and are working on to get a feel of the reach they grab and reach they have. It is pretty impressive to say the least!
