At CMS we believe everyone who runs an event should achieve the best results possible for their audience.
We’re excited to help you on your event journey!
Our goals include working to deliver the best outcome for you by providing excellent service and by removing any technical barriers that can prevent you reaching your objectives.
This is our story
In 1992 CMS was born as Conference Recording Services
As the 90’s progressed, technology evolved at lightning speed and so did recording services
We expanded to include video recording and digital conference recording, the business became Conference Media Services to accommodate this expansion
The business continued to grow organically through this period into the 2000’s as we met more customer demands in the event production space
During this time, the name of the business Conference Media Services morphed into it’s acronym: C.M.S. Australasia
These days we say it stands for Coffee? Milk? Sugar? because we love to sit down with our customers over a coffee and have a chat about their event visions and event challenges
As we head towards 2020, we continue to work across various business sectors; sports and recreation, retail, financial services, and government, as a full service provider we continue to support some of Australia’s most recognised companies and associations
We remain up-to-date with the growth and change in workable event technologies and are passionate about employing those into events for our customers

“It was an absolute no-brainer for the South East Melbourne Phoenix to partner with CMS after seeing the work they’ve put into the sport (NBL) and knowing what they can deliver and how they can bring a game-day to life. We’re rapt to bring them on as our trusted partner because now we’ve got a lot of exciting initiatives to roll out.”
