Fort Worth Tourism Public Improvement District
At the request of the community of local hoteliers, the City has created a Tourism Public Improvement District (TPID) to enhance marketing of Fort Worth as a visitor and convention destination.
The TPID comprises hotel properties in the city limits with 100 or more hotel rooms. These properties pay a 2% assessment on their occupied rooms to fund the district’s activities.
The current term for the TPID is 10 years. A board of directors consisting of participating hoteliers direct the use of funds generated. The City of Fort Worth authorized the creation of the District and must annually approve the budget. The board has contracted with the City to collect the funds, and with the Fort Worth Convention and Visitors Bureau to administer the programs and use of funds.
