Seeds are sown for future business development through meeting new contacts at our increasingly popular networking events.
Covering a wide variety of topics, our guest speakers will deliver key information which is aligned with business interests.
All events are free to attend and take place approximately every three months at a variety of locations in Hull city centre, as a breakfast or lunch meeting, or an after-work social.
A highlight in a packed calendar of engaging events is the annual HullBID Awards, which is open to all businesses in all sectors, and attracts more than 500 entries from people eager to share their success stories.
Businesses can nominate themselves for an award in a wide range of categories, or encourage their customers to put them forward.
Culminating in a gala dinner where shortlisted businesses receive complimentary tickets – the HullBID Awards are a great way to celebrate the achievements of our businesses.
A quarterly newsletter sent out to all our members and available to download from the Resources section of this website. It introduces new businesses and reports on what HullBID has been involved with during the past few months and will be doing in the next quarter. There are also stats on footfall, cleaning, maintenance and security for each previous quarter.
Partnerships are crucial when it comes to protecting and promoting the interests of businesses in the city centre, and HullBID is extremely effective at developing those links.
Our relationships with Hull City Council and Humberside Police are well established and we have a strong track record for helping businesses to open doors, cut through red tape and get things done. We also bring councillors and public officers out of the corridors of power and into the business community to meet our members and deal with issues face-to-face.
No other organisation is able to exercise this level of access and influence on behalf of businesses in the city centre.
Our partnerships mean that we're aware of key city developments so that we can keep you informed too.

Support and advice
