Thank you to our British BIDs members


We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to our members for their ongoing support in 2018. This year has seen us grow to our largest membership ever.

We had a very successful National BIDs Conference in November with over 180 delegates attending. Our Professional Development Day back in April was also fully booked plus we also held a Marketing and Operations Forum where we teamed up with Hubbub at Somerset House in September to discuss the latest thinking on plastics, litter and recycling issues, as well as providing practical advice and inspiration for BIDs.

Our 12th National BIDs survey launched in November. It has been picked up by the national media and has been used across the industry. We are very proud to continue to provide the most comprehensive data on BIDs.

This year an additional 20 people have graduated with our Certificate in BID management (CiBM) qualification and four more BIDs have been awarded our industry recognised standard, Accreditation. Over the past two years,  we have provided training to more than 150 individuals through our training courses.

We are always evolving our offer to our members, so this year we added job description templates, Recruitment Support services and online chat support via our website. In addition to this, we have offered two free training courses per year (Delivering a successful BID ballot Campaign and Governance & responsibilities of a BID Board) to our members, regularly updated the BID index, provided weekly ballot result emails and much more. We promise to continue to evolve our offer to ensure that we are meeting the needs of the members we serve.

Professor Christopher Turner, Chief Executive, British BIDs
