"Watford BID has been a member of British BIDs for a number of years, including prior to being a BID. We have utilised a full range of services over the years, this has included support during the ballot process, through to accessing training to support the board and the team. However, one of the greatest benefits has been being part of a larger family or network of BIDs, the sharing of best practice, idea exchange and general support from colleagues from the country. We find the National BIDs Conference both informative and of value both for staff and the board members who attend. It provides a great place to network, improve knowledge and understanding of what is happening across the high street nationally." -  Maria Manion, Chief Executive, Watford BID
