About TCA Abu Dhabi
Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi), Manchester City Football Club’s Official Tourism Destination Partner, conserves and promotes the heritage and culture of Abu Dhabi emirate and leverages them in the development of a world-class, sustainable destination of distinction which enriches the lives of visitors and residents alike.
Its policies, plans and programmes relate to the preservation of heritage and culture, including protecting archaeological and historical sites and to developing museums, including the Louvre Abu Dhabi, Zayed National Museum and Guggenheim Abu Dhabi.
In managing the emirate’s tourism industry, the authority works closely with tourism-specific stakeholders and is responsible for marketing the destination internationally through a wide range of activities aimed at attracting visitors and investment.
As well as honouring the emirate's heritage by supporting intellectual and artistic activities and cultural events to nurture a rich cultural environment, the authority has created a packed international events programme to position the emirate as a major events destination. These include: the annual PGA European Tour-sanctioned Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship; the Al Ain Aerobatics Show; the Abu Dhabi International Triathlon; Gourmet Abu Dhabi and Summer Fest Abu Dhabi. Abu Dhabi city – the capital of the United Arab Emirates – will again host the Volvo Ocean Race fleet in December 2014/New Year 2015 following its historic January 2012 hosting when it was the first Arabian Gulf stopover destination in the race.
On the corporate meetings and events front, Abu Dhabi is increasingly active via the efforts of the newly-formed Abu Dhabi Convention Bureau. The bureau’s Advantage Abu Dhabi initiatives support corporate regional meetings and international conferences and exhibitions looking to come to Abu Dhabi through structured offerings designed to enhance the emirate’s appeal amongst sector-specific bookers.
