Designed by the world-renowned architects Foster & Partners, World Trade Center Abu Dhabi’s central location holds a special place in the history of Abu Dhabi. Located in the site of the old Central Market, a 12-acre single story market which was the center of all business and trading when Abu Dhabi first started growing as a city in the early 1970s.
Continuing this trading tradition, WTCAD will join more than 330 World Trade Centers in over 100 countries around the world, all of which share the common purpose of facilitating and developing two-way, international trade and business.
