AXS, a global leader in ID based mobile ticketing technology, has entered into an exciting multi-year agreement with the Calgary Stampede.
The Calgary Stampede is a not-for-profit community organization that preserves and celebrates western heritage, culture and community spirit. Host of the world-renowned Calgary Stampede, long hailed the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth, the organization is also home to year-round meeting and convention facilities, western events, youth and agriculture programs. AXS, a long-time partner of the legendary Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo and the Day’s of 47 out of Salt Lake City, UT, will exclusively facilitate the mobile ticketing and entry during the annual Calgary Stampede celebration.
“Our goal is to provide Calgary Stampede guests with the best possible experience, even before they set foot on Stampede Park,” says Sharon Garnett, the Calgary Stampede’s Director of Event Operations. “Utilizing everything AXS has to offer will allow us to tailor the ticket purchasing experience specifically to the needs of our guests.”
AXS will bring its robust data intelligence and reporting to the Canadian province, arming the Stampede with real-time data feeds that will allow the organization to make real-time decisions across all operations, while offering the best data security and ease of purchase.
“Purchasing a ticket is often the first big step people make when planning their visit to the Calgary Stampede. We want to ensure it is a smooth, seamless experience, and we know partnering with AXS will help us do that,” says Garnett.
“AXS is incredibly proud to partner with the Calgary Stampede,” says Rob Sine, Chief Revenue Officer for AXS. “The Calgary Stampede has a long and successful history. AXS will bring a seamless and secure ticketing experience to fans while also driving new technologies and solutions for the Calgary Stampede. We’re excited for Calgary’s community to see how this commitment will further enhance their live experience.”
