The Vienna Tourist Board’s structure and budget are governed by Vienna’s Promotion of Tourism Act. This piece of legislation also sets out the Board’s remit – specifically representing the interests of tourism for Vienna and marketing the destination. It also determines the local taxes that the Vienna Tourist Board receives. The Vienna Tourist Board is led by a President (nominated by the provincial government of Vienna) and a Director of Tourism. The Supervisory Board (Tourism Commission) – which approves the underlying guidelines for the Vienna Tourist Board’s work and its budget – comprises the president and 17 members. 14 members of the Commission are appointed by the provincial government of Vienna. The Vienna Economic Chamber, the Vienna Chamber of Labour and the Vienna Chamber of Agriculture each appoint one member.
