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.


Take a look at some highlights of En Route’s work over the years!

  2. Planting tourism seeds in the Garden State


    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.

    Nobody will forget 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic, critical discussions about systematic racism, protests, and economic threats turned everyone’s world upside down.
