HullBID Group Meetings

HullBID endeavours to keep all partners and BID area businesses up to date and informed on its operations and we find face-to-face visits are the most effective way of doing this. As well as a variety of other communications, HullBID holds a series of group meetings which are vital to receive feedback and capture opinions from those who essentially guide Hull BID’s objectives.

If you would like more information on any of the below groups, or would like to become a member, please contact Catherine Goble on 01482 611802 or via e-mail

HullBID Board

The HullBID Board comprises stakeholders who have, in some way, a vested interest in the city centre. This includes private and public sector representation from independent business owners, retailers, Hull City Council and Humberside Police. The HullBID Board Directors are unremunerated and devote their time freely. The Board meets bi-monthly with the City Centre Manager and is responsible for governance and supporting the organisation with overall strategic planning.

HullBID Business Network Events

An opportunity for members from all sectors to meet and network at our bi-monthly events. Guest speakers with relevance to the BID area, along with a bite to eat and drink, make the meetings both informative and relaxing. Sign up to be added to the invite list. Contact to reserve a place.

HullBID Retail Security Forum

Meeting monthly and chaired by HullBID Support Officers, the meetings are attended by Humberside Police, the Council's Anti-Social Behaviour Officer, and security teams from BID businesses ranging from large department stores to smaller independents. Information is circulated regarding prolific offenders and safety and security operations within the city centre.

HullBID Evening Economy Group

HullBID, along with city partners Hull City Council, VHEY and Humberside Police are committed to raising the profile of evening economy businesses in Hull, particularly early evening.  HullBID chairs an informal meeting every 6-7 weeks with licensees and leisure proprietors from both the old town and new town, sharing information about night time policing and BID marketing initiatives including the popular Hull Street Food Nights.  HullBID also invites guest speakers with relevance to the food, beverage and leisure sector.
