On January 31st, ONTIER reaffirmed its commitment to the Spanish Chamber of Commerce as sponsors of their New Year’s Drinks Reception at the renowned Royal Academy of Arts. The event, co-sponsored by IBERIA airlines, marked the opening of the already acclaimed “Spain and the Hispanic World” exhibition which features masterpieces from artists such as Goya and Velázquez.

The event was a masterclass in Spanish hospitality and was the medium for a night of networking with new and existing contacts. The Chamber brought together over 200 executives from Spanish businesses and government institutions in London.

ONTIER is determined to continue developing London as its strategic global business hub, focusing on innovation and value generation for companies and investors. Pedro Rodero, ONTIER Spain’s Executive President said:

"Our active collaboration with the Chamber evidences our commitment to the economic, social and cultural development of Anglo Hispanic relations in the UK and overseas. As a professional community it is our dedication to culture and genuine diversity as a pillar of cohesion and social development, which articulates the spirit and corporate responsibility of ONTIER.”

“Working across jurisdictions, it is very important to create a sense of belonging, to understand and respect individual cultural nuances and create new mutually beneficial ways of working together. The Spanish Chamber of Commerce is a great channel to network, generate work for each other and promote the successes of our mutual contacts and connections.”

The Ambassador of Spain in London, Mr. José Pascual Marco, together with Mr. Eduardo Barrachina, President of the Chamber, opened the event accompanied by Mr. Axel Rüger, CEO of the Royal Academy of Arts, highlighting the contribution and important developments between Spain and the UK, and how this prosperous relationship has also enriched the natural connection and investment flows with Latin America, represented in the event by numerous ambassadors from the region.
