Inspiring Quality and Innovation in the BID industry

Professional Development Day

The British BIDs Professional Development Day will take place on 19th April at Mercure Bristol Grand Hotel.

Following the success of the National BIDs conference last year, we are pleased to respond to your feedback for more networking opportunities throughout the year.

The day will integrate an operational visit to an exciting City centre with two BIDs, a series of presentations packed with tips and advice, and a tour of the city to see how theory and practice can come together.

We will be joined by John Hirst from Destination Bristol, the Destination Management Organisation promoting Bristol and its two BIDs in the city centre.  

Aimed at BID operational teams, the day provides an excellent opportunity to catch-up and network with industry peers whilst enhancing your knowledge of the BID industry and the all-important needs of levy payers.

Tickets are £49.50+ VAT for Bb members when you apply your discount code when booking. If you are not a Bb member, you can secure your booking on the Professional Development Day for £66.00 +VAT.
