    spending advertiser

    X, one of the largest (spending) advertisers of the UK working with 5 different advertisement agencies.


    İs that sentence correct, which phrase is the right one should I use 'spending advertiser' or just 'advertiser'

    This is not a sentence. It is a noun postmodified by an adjectival phrase. In a sentence, there has to be at least one finite verb. In yours there is none.

    Re: spending advertiser

    X is on of the largest (spending) advertisers of the UK working with 5 different agencies.

    How about like this, my main concern is whether spending advertiser is a right phrase or not.

    What is your problem with largest, bhaisahab? BTW, do you not have an easier name? This one does not exactly roll off the tongue.

    I don't have a problem with 'largest' it's just that 'big(gest) spending', unlike bhaisahab, rolls nicely off the tongue. As well as being widely used.
