HISTORY

CMS Events have been established in the events industry in Western Australia since 1993, specialising in public exhibitions and events, which have also included from time to time, specific client conferences, gala dinners and seminars.

Prior to 1993, director Richard Campbell worked part time in the exhibition industry from 1981 then full time from 1987. His experience provides over 35 years of knowledge and experience taking in the growth of exhibitions and events in Western Australia. This growth has seen a progression from partly regulated events to the modern day where compliance and structured management are critical in the delivery of sustainable projects.

In 2022, CMS Events celebrated their successful involvement with the promotion of wine and food events in the state for 25 years.

In managing most events, the company takes on a full-service role which includes dealing with all key partners, companies, stakeholders, suppliers and the public at all levels.

The necessary relationships and networks have been developed over many years to provide the support of key suppliers to the industry.

Projects involve full reporting and accountability under their management contracts as well as the operation and development of events owned by CMS. Projects managed are generally taken on for multiple years.
