The excitement extends beyond theme parks. World-class concerts, family events, and sporting spectacles like Lion King, UFC, NBA, and celebrity appearances like Kevin Hart and Blackpink drew in crowds, surpassing attendance expectations by a whopping 87%.

Business events are also booming on Yas Island. The number of MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Exhibitions) groups jumped by 77% compared to 2022, with a significant increase in related spending.

Looking ahead, Yas Island has even more to offer. A massive expansion to Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi, featuring an epic 3.3 kilometers of new slides, and the highly anticipated Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi are set to further elevate the entertainment experience.

Saadiyat Island isn’t lagging behind. This haven for beach lovers, nature enthusiasts, and art aficionados saw a remarkable 44% increase in visitation compared to 2022.

Yas Island and Saadiyat Island’s dedication to excellence hasn’t gone unnoticed. These top destinations have garnered a combined total of more than 170 regional and international awards in 2023, highlighting their record-breaking attractions and contributions to the tourism industry.

Miral, responsible for managing these destinations, plays a crucial role in driving significant economic growth for Abu Dhabi and the UAE.
