    Pam has led her Five Star Events team in support of our annual Customer Appreciation Stampede Bar B-Q for 9 years. She has personally made this annual event successful through an acute attention to the smallest details, and a coordinated service delivery that makes it look easy and flawless to the guests and hosts. Pam and her team made our 750 guests feel welcome and at home during the entire event and carefully branded the day to meet our corporate expectations. Her choices on decorations, entertainment, food, and beverage, were high quality and in alignment with our budget requirements.


    I have, and will continue to recommend her event planning services professionally and personally when ever asked.

    I used google search to find a local registrar for our conference at the Hyatt Hotel in Calgary. “As fate would have it, the last one on the list answered the phone and within the first three minutes of our conversation I knew Pam was the perfect fit for us.

    Pam McCarthy (with Five Star Events) has been professional, prompt, courteous, willing to go the extra mile and has exhibited much grace under pressure.


    … In case you have any clients looking for event management—Pam McCarthy would be perfect for them, too!

    Pam was a true pleasure to work with! She has an amazing ability to take a rough idea or concept from a client and turn it into an amazing event or experience, all while ensuring that all of the details are taken care of.


    I hope we have an opportunity to work together again!

    I had used Five Star Events for my wedding, so when the task of planning the Corporate Christmas Party came to me, I knew exactly who to call.


    Pam not only met but absolutely exceeded my expectations. From touring various venues to planning the menu, wine, entertainment and décor, she was there every step of the way. My party was a wild success, and I owe it to Pam and Five Star Events®.

    Our Christmas event was a huge success! Pam at Five Star Events® met with me on-site at the location where we were going to host our event. Pam has a keen eye for space planning, layout and design. I was very impressed with the recommendations, as our guests all left with a wonderful experience. Pam also helped to provide décor and even helped us move stuff to get the room organized. She’s hands on and professional. I would highly recommend Pam’s services to any business who’s looking to host a corporate event or function.

RSVP Etiquette vs. No Show Fees
I have seen this photo and article floating around Social Media the last couple of days. According to the article, a child in the UK was invited to a birthday party, had given an RSVP to attend, and then didn’t show up to the party ( a ski slope) without letting the hosting parent know […]
Admin Fee vs. Gratuity. What’s the difference?
  Recently I was meeting with a prospect to talk about their client Stampede Party for the upcoming year. Through the course of conversation, it came out that the company they used last year to plan the event was not only their caterer, but also their event planner. They felt kind of “ripped off” that […]
