Universal World Events managing director Graham McIntosh said: "The opening of our office in Madrid is a very significant landmark for Universal World Events which means that we now have an office in each of the five major European markets.

"It puts us in a very strong position to be able to look after our existing clients and to develop new ones. It is a key step in the on-going development of our global footprint and our ability to provide clients with global reach backed up by a local service."

Universal World Events has offices in G5 countries the UK, France, Germany, Spain and Italy in addition to offices in the Netherlands, US, Hong Kong and Singapore.
