Biographical/Historical Note:     The Division of Tourism was established as part of the Department of Commerce in 1972 (Ch. 72-205, Laws).  It replaced the Department's Division of Commercial Development which was created in 1969 to assume the duties of the Florida Development Commission (Ch. 69-109, Laws).  The Division of Tourism planned, produced, and distributed advertising, publicity, and promotional literature designed to encourage visitors to come to Florida.  It also promoted the location of conventions and sporting events within the state, helped provide recreational campaigns, assisted chambers of commerce in promotional programs, and was responsible for maintaining Welcome Stations.
    In 1996, when the Department of Commerce was abolished (Ch. 96-320), some of its tourism functions were transferred to the new Office of Tourism, Trade, and Economic Development in the Governor's Office.  Other functions were privatized under the new Florida Tourism Industry Marketing Corp. which the law directed the Florida Commission on Tourism to create.
