Tourism-Destination Bodensee-Vorarlberg (BVT)

Central service-centre
Since Summer 1998 Vorarlberg has established a comprehensive destination management.
A tremendouse restructuring of the destination management of Bodensee-Vorarlberg Tourism was instituted, which was introduced in several steps: first the Region Bodensee/Rheintal and the Oberland/Feldkirch merged, in the second step regional tasks were transferred to the BVT.

Local tourism offices are therefore able to actively assist tourists and create customized special offers. Today, the BVT is the central contact point for guests and customers who inquire about brochure and reservations. It also coordinates marketing acitivities of the whole region.

Duties and tasks
The main work of BVT is coordination, preparation and marketing of tourist oriented offers. Since January 2000, the BVT has also been in charge of correspondence of Bregenz, Dornbirn and Feldkirch and an additional 35 small towns.
