One of the things we pride ourselves on at Spark is our ability to maintain client relationships. We've never lost a client and have had the pleasure of working with most of our clients on multiple events. It is truly humbling that our clients see value in our services and keep coming back. The best part about this is that that each time we work with client on an event, it allows us to deepen our understanding of their business, which inevitably results in better events every time.

Anyone who lives or works in Calgary knows that during Stampede, the city morphs into a massive 10 day, cowboy-themed party. Venues, event planners, décor companies and entertainers are all booked up working long days and late hours to satisfy the demands of one of the busiest party seasons in our city. 

Most Stampede events and parties offer little to challenge the imagination of an event planner.

As an event planner, where is the challenge to be creative or strategic about a Stampede party?

Last month, we had the honour of working with the Calgary Bridge Foundation for Youth in partnership with Citizenship and Immigration Canada to put on the Western Canada In-School Settlement Conference. This conference, the first of its kind, brought together school based settlement programs and 200 in-school settlement workers from across Western Canada to develop practical skills and tools, discuss common challenges and create innovative program ideas. Opportunities were provided for attendees to network and share their experiences and approaches so that they can continue to bridge the journey to Canadian life for the newcomer children, youth and families they serve each and every day.
