Wizard has announced that it will be closing its Congers, NY office and moving straight into NYC itself.
Read on for the release:
Starting this May, all three monthly Wizard Entertainment publications—Wizard, ToyFare and Anime Insider—will be produced in the company’s New York City office. Since it was founded in 1991, Wizard Entertainment has operated out of its headquarters located in Congers, New York, and its sales office in New York City.
“For the first time in 15 years, we have the company in one location, under one roof,” said Wizard Entertainment Chairman Gareb Shamus. “We’re very much looking forward to having all of us working together, right in the middle of the city.”
Bi-annual consumer toy magazine Toy Wishes will also move to Wizard’s Manhattan office, as will the company’s conventions department, which puts on the annual Wizard World Philadelphia and Chicago Comic-Con shows. Wizard’s West Coast staff will be unaffected. For more information about Wizard Entertainment, visit www.wizardworld.com.
This consolidation comes after last week’s announcement of seven layoffs from the company, mainly from their editorial department.
