Over 170 BID industry professionals gathered at this year’s National BIDs Conference. Thank you for your attendance at such a fantastic day. For all photos, click here.
The day brought an overview of issues and challenges affecting BIDs of which there are over 280 in the UK. We celebrated the fantastic work of BIDs as Aberdeen Inspired and Essential Edinburgh were crowned the 2017 National BID Award winners. We also saw 19 students graduate with the Certificate in BID Management (CiBM). If you are interested in studying the CiBM in 2018, please click here. As BIDs mature, the projects and services they deliver are becoming more confident, entrepreneurial and innovative, showing real understanding of the specific needs of their locations. Wayne Hemingway MBE explored People, Places and the role of BIDs in his inspiring presentation during the morning and the afternoon was packed with an array of masterclass workshops for BIDs to choose topics to suit their interests. Chief Executive of British BIDs, Christopher Turner launched the 2017 National BID Survey and made some some key announcements throughout the day which can be revisited here.
