The Vienna Tourist Board‘s structure and budget are laid down by the Vienna Tourism Promotion Act, which outlines the activities of the board, particularly with respect to representing the interests of Vienna in the field of tourism and destination marketing. It also specifies the local accommodation tax that accrues to the board. The board is managed by a president (nominated by the state government of Vienna) and a director of tourism. The supervisory board (Tourismuskommission) determines the basic guidelines for the board‘s work and its budget, and consists of the president and 17 other members. Fourteen of them are appointed by the government of Vienna, and one each by the Vienna Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Vienna Chamber of Labour, and the Vienna Chamber of Agriculture.
