About Blue Compass

West48 is owned and operated by Blue Compass, a West Des Moines web design, development and digital marketing agency. In fact, if you visit West48, you’ll find Blue Compass right upstairs! Our mission at Blue Compass is to provide companies with a clear digital direction by serving as an extension of their teams. We strive to deliver cutting-edge solutions and measurable results.

Blue Compass’ experts have in-depth knowledge of a broad range of digital marketing and web design topics, and we are always looking for ways to share our expertise. We do this in many ways, including blog posts, online webinars and local trainings and events. Many local Des Moines professionals attend our U of Blue digital marketing training sessions, where our team members present on topics like search engine optimization, online advertising and other digital marketing disciplines. In 2019, Blue Compass had the opportunity to purchase the space below our agency, and we recreated the space into a modern event center that would allow us to share our digital expertise with more people in the community.

Blue Compass also has a strong company culture that revolves around spreading positivity, giving clients our best and supporting one another. Creating West48 seemed like the perfect way to share Blue Compass’ exciting, innovative culture with professionals and community members in the Des Moines metro area.

We also recognized a need for a tech-centered event space in the Des Moines area. Anyone can host a presentation, special event or business meeting at West48 and enjoy the large presentation screens, multiple microphone options and an advanced, modern A/V system. West48 also has a gaming area and a kitchenette, making it a fun and functional space for any type of event.

We’re excited for more Des Moines area businesses to use West48 for meetings and events. Contact us to set up a tour, or click “Start Planning” to schedule your event today!
