Gold Sponsor - Multi Media

Multi-Media Systems Ltd is a family business established by Bong and Noon Wong in 1974 out of their home garage. The initial focus was on the sales, rental and repairs of 8mm and 16mm reel projectors with the market focus being on schools, community halls and church groups. When the focus expanded into the corporate sector a new avenue opened up to explore the service of film processing and development, specifically for 35mm slides. 

Until the early 90’s Multi-Media Systems remained focussed on this area of the industry creating a strong reputation for dynamic visual presentation delivery. Product launches and road shows were at the peak of event trends as industries and companies wanted to share information amongst peers and clients on a national level.

The need to give clients more cost effective solutions for travel outside our main hub in Auckland gave the company reason to open its doors in Wellington. As part of cost effective solutions, the business decided to spread its knowledge in areas of Audio and Lighting. Creating a one-stop shop solution for clients enabled the business to have control from concept phases through to execution and delivery. The expansion into the South Island gave us further ability to service our national clients. Our Christchurch base was set up in 2004 with the idea of looking after our clients in a more localised manner.

Multi-Media Systems Ltd is now a national business with services that can support a myriad of events. The experience and knowledge remains within the family with Bong & Noon’s son Damian looking after day to day proceedings supported by key personnel to ensure clients’ experiences are first class.
