At the conference, we took a walk down memory lane and looked at the BID industry over the last 10 years, and what the highlights and trends have been. In this video you can see just some of the many achievements of BIDs.


We also welcomed our CiBM graduates to the stage (virtually) to congratulate them on their achievement, watch the video here.

Following the circumstance surrounding COVID-19, our 2020 conference meant that we couldn’t capture photos to reminisce on. For those of you who joined us in 2019, you will be familiar with the photos here. We hope for lots of great photos in 2021.
