Thank you for your support with this year's National BIDs Conference which is now officially sold out. 

More than 160 delegates will gather at this year’s conference which takes place on Thursday 7th November at Downing College, Cambridge.

This year will look at the importance and meanings of places and town centres historically, how we prepare our town centres for the future, the innovations and technologies which will help, along with a look at town centres in their broader context.

The National BID Survey is becoming increasingly important in understanding the BID landscape. The survey gives us an opportunity to gain an insight into how BID models are evolving and developing throughout the British Isles. This year's survey is currently being produced and will be launched at our National BID Conference in November.
