Since its official launch earlier this year by Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi), Abu Dhabi Events Licensing System (ELS) has experienced unprecedented growth, with the authority reporting a 19.5 percent increase in total applications between the first and second quarters of the year.

Aiming to assist in the management, registration and licensing of all events held in the emirate, ELS incorporates a database for event types as well as acting as a reliable indicator for tourism performance.

“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,” revealed Sultan Al Dhaheri, acting executive director, tourism sector, TCA Abu Dhabi.
