Welcome to our Washington branch

The Washington branch of CMS consists of Spokane, Central Washington and Seattle offices.

The Spokane office of CMS opened in June 1980 and provides guest services, crowd management, and uniformed security for the City of Spokane’s special event facilities, including the Spokane Coliseum, Joe Albi Stadium, Spokane Convention Center, and the Spokane Agricultural Trade Center. The Spokane Division is home to the longest tenured management structure in the Pacific Northwest. This group includes staff, which has been with CMS for over 30 years. The Spokane office has over 400 active year-round staff.

The Central Washington office, located in Yakima, is very unique in that, due to its central location, it provides support staff to our other Washington and Oregon regions on a continuous basis via CMS corporate buses. By traveling throughout the Northwest, our Central Washington staff gains experience in a wide variety of events. This makes our Central Washington Region a valuable asset to our operations. Established in 1990, the Central Washington regional office is located on the State Fair Park grounds and provides services to events and venues in Yakima, Tri Cities, and the Gorge Amphitheater.

The Seattle office of CMS opened in January 2002 and has provided guest services to the city of Seattle’s special event facilities, including Key Arena, McCaw Hall, and the Seattle Center Park. Some of the special events we staff are Bumbershoot, The Bite of Seattle, New Years at the Needle, and Northwest Folklife. CMS has also provided services to several other special events in and around the greater Puget Sound, including Western Washington State Fair, The Taste of Tacoma, Fremont Oktoberfest, White River Amphitheatre and many other smaller venues and events.
