The Frankfurt Tourist+Congress Board (TCF) is the official marketing company of the City of Frankfurt am Main for the business sectors of tourism, congresses and conferences. It is also the chief organiser of the city’s folk fairs and fun festivals.
The sole shareholder of TCF is the City of Frankfurt am Main. The company's bodies are the shareholders' meeting (the City of Frankfurt am Main's municipal council), the supervisory board and the managing director.
The expenditure budget of TCF amounts to approximately € 16.2 million in 2023 due to special projects. The self-financing will amount to approx. 35 %. The planned revenues of approx. € 5.5 million result mainly from the areas of Frankfurt Services and festivals/events. Approximately one third of the funds required to market the city will therefore be generated from the company's own revenues. In addition, however, TCF also relies on financing from its shareholder, the City of Frankfurt am Main, in order to be able to implement the company's objectives. For 2023, TCF will receive regular municipal funding of €2.94 million. A further €3.5 million will be provided for the implementation of the public viewing and fan zone areas for EURO 24, and a further €2 million of municipal funds will be provided for the organization of the celebrations "St Paul's Church Festival" in 2023/24. Municipal marketing funds of €2.05 million have been budgeted from the tourism contribution.
TCF holds 20% of the share capital of Frankfurt Ticket RheinMain GmbH, which was transferred to TCF by the shareholder City of Frankfurt am Main in 2011.
As of June 30, 2022, a total of 59 employees and an additional twelve temporary student workers and mini-jobbers* were employed. The total number of staff corresponds to 56.56 full-time equivalents.
