Town Centre BID offers free promotion for businesses at summer events

The Town Centre BID is funding a free stall on a rota basis, giving businesses the opportunity to showcase themselves at both the Bournemouth Food and Drink Festival and Summer Live event.

The Town Centre BID is delivering one of its first acts since its successful renewal vote. To give businesses in the town centre an opportunity to promote themselves at two popular summer events, the BID is funding a free stall in the heart of the town centre.

On a rotating basis, levy payers can apply to use the stall free of charge, exposing their business to countless customers flocking to Bournemouth this summer. The stall will be available at the Bournemouth Food and Drink Festival from the 16th to the 25thJune 2017. Additionally, businesses may apply to use the stall during the Summer Live music event which will take place across Bournemouth from 1st July to the 16th August 2017.

Steve Hughes, Town Centre BID manager, said:

“The free stall will give equal opportunities to town centre businesses who haven’t perhaps taken part in local events before or might not be able to afford a stand of their own. They will now be able to spread awareness for their brand, meet a whole host of new customers and improve their own business prospects. An excellent way to kick start our 2017-2022 business plan, please let us know if you would like to get involved.’’

The BID is an independent, not-for-profit company with a voluntary board of directors drawn from a range of businesses in the BID area. To find out more about the Bournemouth Town Centre BID, visit
