The TUI Travel-owned global DMC and event management company has partnered with DMC Gulliver Travel, who operates in both Croatia and the Balkan region, to offer destination services from the Adriatic coast to cities including Dubrovnik and Split.

It has also partnered with Aitken Spence Travel to open Pacific World Sri Lanka and Pacific World Maldives.

Harsha Krishnan, strategic development director, Pacific World, said: "Pacific World is excited to be opening in these three new destinations.

"Through the shared ownership structure provided by TUI Travel PLC, we can guarantee service standards and ensure that creativity and the customer experience is second to none. We believe that this is one more step in our journey to create a "one-stop-shop" global value proposition for all our clients worldwide."

Last week (11 November), Pacific World overhauled its senior management structure following strong revenue growth in both the UK and France in 2014, reporting 25% and 70% growth respectively.
