Over here at Showpass we’re all incredibly excited to be coming off of a record setting Stampede in Calgary, and looking forward to catching up on some sleep and getting on the detox train. 2016’s numbers for “The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth” have exponentially grown over those of the years before, paving the way for continued expansion and innovation in the entertainment and event management industry.
Every major Stampede tent was on board with Showpass this season, including Cowboys, Ranchmans, Wildhorse, and Knoxvilles. These venues brought in hundreds of thousands of guests to dozens of amazing concerts including Blink-182, Thomas Rhett, Ice Cube, Flo Rida, Hunter Hayes, and Milky Chance. Those numbers, when combined with those of the year-round Calgary venues already on the Showpass team, set records for the 10 days in July when this city embraces its wilder western side.
Here are a couple of our favorite numbers from the 10 days of Stampede;
- 150,000+… the number of individuals Showpass proudly enabled to see their favorite artists in town
- 60,000+…. the combined reach of the Showpass brand through its social media platforms and seller base network
- 500+… the number of customers helped in real time through live our chat line and instant customer communication platform integrated into our website
- 25+… venues joined the Showpass team and made Stampede bigger than ever for Showpass, despite the less than stellar weather
- 10+… venues that trusted Showpass’ realtime clicker software to track venue capacity to abide by fire regulations and stay clear of any overcapacity issues
- 12 minutes… the average wait time for a show goer to get through the doors for a concert
- 30 minutes… the longest wait time for a show goer to get into one of our shows during a rush
Showpass would like to thank everyone involved for helping run a smooth and successful operation for the 2016 Stampede. We can’t wait to see what this city is going to put together next year, and we’re going to keep on improving to make an even bigger year possible!
