The Tourism Development & Investment Company (TDIC) is the master developer of major tourism cultural and residential destinations in Abu Dhabi. TDIC was created to be the dedicated tourism asset management and development arm of the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi), in order to drive the investment, growth and development of the Emirate's tourism sector. Since 2006, we have been actively involved in many of the Emirate's most prestigious and high profile projects.

Today, much of our success can be attributed to our ability to respond to the needs of the modern global economy, while dealing with the complex mechanisms of finance and economics and recognising that design and investment are fundamentally connected. Through investment partnerships and joint ventures, TDIC has played an important role in Abu Dhabi's continual evolution as a world-class destination for tourists, businesses and residents alike.
