Brevard County Tourist Development Council

The Brevard County Tourist Development Council was established to promote growth, development, and quality of tourism on the Space Coast. We encourage participation by both visitors and residents in tourism related activities, and act as the primary body to determine direction, goals and policy for use of the tourism tax.

The Tourist Development Council consists of nine members appointed by the County Commission according to a formula established in the Florida Statutes. One member is the County Commission Chair or his/her designee. Two represent municipal governments in the county. Three represent businesses who collect bed tax and the remaining three represent tourism-related entities that do not collect a bed tax.
