Showpass, the event discovery and ticketing platform that brings you events like Cavendish Beach Music Festival, Spruce Meadows "Masters," The Shaw Charity Classic, and more, has come a long way from its humble beginnings in a University of Calgary graduate's basement. Today, with over 100 dedicated team members, the new 30,000-square-foot headquarters was imperative to meet the demands of the growing company.

Showpass is focused on shifting the narrative from the energy industry to Calgary's booming tech ecosystem. Its new headquarters is poised to set the standard for tech offices in Calgary by creating a space where people want to come together.

"Our office is built to be a second home. We've got everything covered from the food to the relaxation spaces - even pets are welcome. We want to create an environment where every team member feels that they can reach their highest potential," says Showpass CEO Lucas McCarthy.

Showpass' office features eccentric board rooms with themes like Candy, Lego, Calgary Sports, Rock & Roll, and The Jungle. Visitors can also find a fully stocked gym, a lush atrium and a private patio. With meticulous attention to detail, the space took over a year to complete.

Most central to the Showpass experience is a 3,000-square-foot restaurant-grade kitchen where an in-house chef prepares a fresh breakfast and lunch daily. The availability of two meals a day, a corporate chef and a fully stocked cafe was something McCarthy was insistent about. "At Showpass, we centre ourselves around bringing people together through the power of events and experiences. Similarly, we see food as a catalyst for fostering community and creating connections."

Showpass' future plans include utilizing this space as a community hub to focus on what the company loves most - events and bringing people together.
