THE BID INDUSTRY EVENT OF THE YEAR
Bookings for the National BIDs conference are now open!
As the BID industry continues to grow, our BID members and wider industry professionals have expressed a desire to have an annual BID-focused conference. The National BIDs conference will focus purely on BIDs and the issues affecting them. The conference will provide an excellent opportunity to catch-up and network with industry peers whether you are a BID Chief Executive, BID Manager, staff member, Board member, Local Authority, levy payer, stakeholder or a policy maker.
The day will include a variety of robust policy and industry debates whilst also allowing essential practical showcasing, discussions and plenty of opportunities for networking.
We are pleased to announce Wayne Hemingway MBE (featured left) will be speaking at the National BIDs conference.
Since selling Red or Dead, Wayne has regenerated local authority housing, launched pop-up shops and built a vintage brand from scratch. He has also worked on East Village at the Olympic site, created the retro Dreamland Pleasure Park at Margate and introduced new uniforms for all London Transport staff. Wayne sees economic recovery offering an opportunity for the creative; kiosks are one example, providing low-rent for the next wave of designers. View his biography here.
We will be revealing our full speaker line-up very soon.
Chris Turner, Chief Executive of British BIDs said:
“A national conference for the BID industry is a vital tool in widening our understanding and sharing best practice. It is clear from conversations with BIDs and the recent research on the needs of the industry that a high-quality BID focussed gathering is a key tool in allowing us all to keep our economy vibrant and creative.”
