About Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority (ADTA)
ADTA is a statutory body established in 2004 under the Government of Abu Dhabi’s economic diversification strategy. The authority has wide-ranging responsibilities for the promotion and development of the emirate’s tourism industry and international positioning as a world-class destination of distinction.
ADTA works closely with all the emirate’s tourism industry stakeholders – both private and public sector - including aviation infrastructure and transport suppliers, airlines, destination management companies, accommodation providers and meetings organisers. Together they adopt a collaborative approach to promoting the emirate as an up-market destination with an uncompromising determination towards sustaining and preserving its natural environment and treasured heritage.
ADTA’s activities include destination marketing; infrastructure and product development and regulation and classification. The authority also serves as a catalyst in driving inward tourism investment, growth and development. A key initiative in its inward investment strategy was the creation, in 2006 of the Tourism Development & Investment Company (TDIC), the authority’s tourism asset management and development arm. TDIC is now the name behind some of the emirate’s flagship projects.
