About the Marina del Rey Convention & Visitors Bureau
Founded in 2000, The Marina del Rey CVB is a non-profit corporation formed through the joint efforts of the Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbors and the six Marina del Rey hotels located within the unincorporated area of Los Angeles County.
The Marina del Rey Convention & Visitors Bureau is funded by an assessment of hotel room revenues from Marina del Rey’s six hotels and by Los Angeles County’s Department of Beaches & Harbors. Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) is set at 12% in Marina del Rey and is allocated to Los Angeles County’s General Fund. Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbors funds approximately 30% of the MdRCVB budget. A separate 1.25% hotel self-assessment is collected from the Marina’s hotels and distributed to the Marina del Rey CVB. Funding from Marina del Rey’s six hotels represents 70% of the MdRCVB budget.
The Marina del Rey Convention & Visitors Bureau is governed by a 14-member Board of Directors composed of business, community and government leaders.
