What Retail BID Do

Retail BID’s third term is one of influence and support, running for five years from 2017 to 2022.

We are developing the Birmingham City Centre Experience to support our world-class retail offer, creating new opportunities for leisure, evening economy and cultural businesses to thrive.

We are making it easier for people to discover opportunities through strong promotion of businesses and experiences in Birmingham city centre, online, in print and on street.

We are supporting and encouraging creative, engaging events, and continuing to promote the BID area, generating footfall.

We are working in partnership with Birmingham City Council and other service providers on the maintenance and management of the city centre, and monitoring the delivery of support and enforcement services.

We are continuing to give members a voice on the management and maintenance of the city centre, and providing one-to-one personal support to Retail BID members.

We are leading the reimagination of New Street and further public realm improvements across the Retail BID area.

We think and act beyond our boundary, working to support Birmingham city centre as a destination, and sustain and grow the already substantial employment base.

We work closely with Birmingham City Council, Highways England and transport providers to ensure Birmingham remains open for business.
