ACHIEVEMENTS & MILESTONES

While creating a respected and influential agency may not have been the ultimate goal when the En Route journey began a decade ago, En Route has grown into a diverse team of passionate and skilled professionals. Today that team is the go-to marketing resource for cultural, civic, and tourism projects, always focused on maximizing impact.

ACHIEVEMENTS & MILESTONES

As we mark a decade in business, join us in celebrating 10 years of success with a look back at 10 major milestones on the road to En Route.

  1. And so it began

    2007

    En Route Consulting launches as a tourism marketing consulting business. The first projects include managing Mural Arts Month for the City of Philadelphia’s Mural Arts Program and developing a tourism master plan for Union County, New Jersey.

  2. Planting tourism seeds in the Garden State

    2008

    The South Jersey Tourism Corporation engages En Route to develop tourism product and marketing campaigns, and to launch a series of Tourism Assessment Programs with individual counties throughout the region. En Route continues to work with South Jersey’s leading institutions more than a decade later.

  3. Bigger clients, expanded reach

    2009Harrah’s Entertainment brings En Route to Atlantic City to develop strategies to promote its four casino properties as destinations for LGBTQ travelers.

  4. Mixing marketing with product development

    2010

    En Route whips up some culinary creativity to create the Gingerbread House Display at The Shops at Liberty Place as a mechanism to promote the Historic Houses of Fairmount Park Holiday House Tours. The display became a seasonal favorite for the next six years.

  5. En Route goes global

    2012

    En Route joins the Fabulous Philadelphians in Asia to help The Philadelphia Orchestra launch its China Residency Program promoting cultural diplomacy. This would be the first of six international tours that En Route would support. Back in Philadelphia, the agency adds its second employee.

  6. En Route knows the business

    2013

    After En Route aids the Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau with planning for and hosting the American Bus Association’s 2012 Marketplace, the CVB taps En Route to secure and manage the Active America China Summit in Philadelphia.

  7. Creating new routes for tourists

    2014

    With new funding in place to relaunch the Philly PHLASH Tourist Loop, the Independence Visitor Center Corporation recruits En Route to help select a new operator, new vehicles, and new visitor-friendly plans to enhance the vital transit service.

  8. We literally wrote the plan for tourism growth

    2014

    En Route is selected by the City of Philadelphia Tourism & Hospitality Task Force to undertake a study and report addressing tourism need periods and product development to drive visitation.

  9. Reaching new heights with new attractions

    2015

    Montparnasse 56, a global tourism company based in Paris, hires En Route to lead pre-opening planning and group sales strategy for the new One Liberty Observation Deck.

  10. Turning community events into marketing magic

    2016

    En Route’s second year promoting the Chestnut Hill Harry Potter Festival generates global media coverage and trending content on social media. Attendance increased by more than 220%.

  11. Generating votes for historic preservation

    2017

    Germantown United Community Development Corporation called on En Route to help them compete for a Partners in Preservation grant through a 30-day, vote-driven nationwide campaign. En Route’s campaign resulted in Germantown winning the popular contest, and a bonus voting week, resulting in $160,000 in preservation funding to restore two African-American historical sites.

  12. Welcoming Tall Ships to Philadelphia

    2018

    Brought on board by the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation and Independence Seaport Museum, En Route served as project manager for the 2018 Sail Philadelphia festival, including interfacing with Tall Ships America, securing sponsorships, executing marketing, contracting ships from around the globe, and managing ticket sales.

  13. Illuminating the largest Lantern Festival Company in the U.S.

    2019

    After developing a strong working relationship marketing the Philadelphia Chinese Lantern Festival for four years, China-based Tianyu Arts & Culture engaged En Route to manage its U.S. brand marketing, including public relations, social media, Search Engine Marketing, and Search Engine Optimization.

  14. Navigating unchartered waters

    2020

    Nobody will forget 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic, critical discussions about systematic racism, protests, and economic threats turned everyone’s world upside down. Suddenly working remotely and in quarantine, the En Route team worked with clients to update offerings, produce digital events, craft powerful messages, and develop new business models for a changed world.
