We live and work in an interesting time where human interaction has taken a few steps back compared to the original days of face-to-face service and people-to-people interactions. At KENNEDY, we make it a point to place an emphasis on the human portion of what we do. We love connecting with people and working together to craft creative strategies to celebrate their stories, ideas, and impact within their business and the surrounding communities.

Our work thrives in an environment of engagement and collaboration. With KENNEDY, you’ll find decades of industry experience, but not at the expense of fresh, new perspectives. We work alongside you and your organization to find innovative solutions and strategies that build on a solid foundation of tried-and-true knowledge.

On paper, KENNEDY is a multi-faceted event management, public relations, and marketing consulting firm based in Wilmington, DE. But at its core, KENNEDY is collaboration, creativity, and community.
