How can we serve YOU?


Pam McCarthy and her team are passionate about working with clients to create unique and memorable meetings, conferences and special events. Working with different corporations, Associations, and the Not For Profit sector is always exciting for Pam. She believes that anyone can have their corporate or special event on their own terms, and within their budget – while not sacrificing their corporate culture or integrity.

Our approach is to have the client communicate their vision, identify their main priority, allocate resources accordingly, and then execute a flawless implementation. We attribute our success to meticulous attention to detail, quality professional contacts and over 15 years of marketplace and events industry experience.


Pam has led her Five Star Events® team in support of our annual Customer Appreciation Stampede Bar B-Q for 10 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.

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!

Company Name: Theadoran (Teddi) Sholter
Designation: Assistant Property Manager / Eighth Avenue Place | Hines Canada

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 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 --- Five Star Events® would be perfect for them, too!
