An introduction to Business Improvement Districts
BIDs (UK), or BIA in (Canada and others), are all about delivering and demonstrating value to their fee paying members. Typically the BID will be focussed on creating a pleasant environment for shoppers and visitors to be in thus encouraging them to visit more often and stay longer. This might involve cleaning and general maintenance of the BID but it could also involve managing events and providing easy ways for visitors to get help or find information during their visit.
BIDs are also very keen to engage with their fee paying members and visitors to the BID to obtain feedback in order to improve further.
