Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority sees 19.5% growth in applications received through Abu Dhabi Events Licensing System
  • The licensing system has paved the way for the exponential growth of Abu Dhabi’s expanding events sector
  • Mandatory register provides fast effective solutions for processing, licensing and promotion of all Abu Dhabi events
Abu Dhabi, UAE – 08 August 2017:  The Abu Dhabi Events Licensing System (ELS), which was launched earlier during the year by Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi), has experienced unprecedented growth of 19.5% in total applications between Q1 and Q2. 
Operated by TCA Abu Dhabi on behalf of Abu Dhabi Government, the ELS, a mandatory register of all business, leisure and public events in Abu Dhabi, is a one-stop platform for all venues and bodies responsible for staging, organising and managing events.  About 9,002 applications that covered all types of events have been submitted during the first half of 2017. Since its introduction it has led to the exponential growth of Abu Dhabi’s event sector by unifying and boosting the speed of registry and licensing mechanisms for Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions (MICE) and leisure events. When compared with Q1, the licensing system has received a surge in applications in Q2 of 2017 with an increase from 4,015 to 4,987 events applications resulting in 19.5% growth, an increase from 603 to 880 training applications, a 33.3% in workshop applications, 2,955 meeting applications - representing growth of 625 or 26.8% - and 55 additional exhibition and conference applications, up 19.1% since implementation of the system.
Commenting on the promising results, Sultan Al Dhaheri, Acting Executive Director of Tourism Sector, TCA Abu Dhabi said: “Abu Dhabi is a key global leisure events and MICE destination. The successful implementation of the Events Licensing System has played a major role in stimulating an increase in licensing applications by simplifying event organisers’ processes, procedures and approvals, which in turn is driving visitor growth across leisure and business sectors for the emirate. We have witnessed a particularly significant boost for the business sector, which authenticates our International Congress Convention Association’s city ranking as one of the top 100 business global meetings destinations.”
The ELS was introduced to aid in the management, registration and licensing of all events held in the emirate. By streamlining, facilitating and collating event registration and licensing procedures, the system incorporates a database for event types, categories, speakers and activities, as well as acting as a reliable indicator for tourism performance, growth orientation and each event’s relative success and fulfillment of its set objectives.
Al Dhaheri added: “The licensing system is firmly aligned with TCA Abu Dhabi’s initiatives to support and maintain the steady growth in the value of our tourism economy, strengthening Abu Dhabi’s position as a sustainable international tourism destination.”
Following its launch, the ELS has secured unmatched efficiency in enhancing the event management services provided to its stakeholders across the public and private sectors, allowing them to reach new audiences by adding their events to Abu Dhabi’s event calendar, and contributing to the ongoing promotion of the continuously expanding line-up of initiatives and activities within Abu Dhabi’s events sector.
