WORLD - Universal WorldEvents, which claims to be the largest full service global event management company specialising in serving the healthcare sector, reports 19 new business wins in the UK, US, France, Germany and Asia this year.
Following the merger of UniversalProcon and WorldEvents in March 2011, the new Universal WorldEvents agency has won a major new European outsource project as well as being re-appointed by an existing EU client with a three-year International Master Service Agreement (MSA) and re-appointed to an enlarged opportunity by a US client with a three-year MSA.
“We are delighted that the benefits of an enlarged and focused organisation are really beginning to see our offer resonate in the market,” said the agency's Sales and Marketing Director, Mark Saxby. “It is also really pleasing to see business successes in so many of our offices.
“One of the other recent developments we have seen is a significant increase in incentive business.”
The company has over 250 employees located in offices across UK, Asia, Mainland Europe and the US. It manages more than 1,100 meetings and events annually for over 100,000 delegates.
