Business Improvement Districts in Scotland have been recognised at the annual Association of Town and City Management (ATCM) National Awards, with Falkirk Delivers and Aberdeen Inspired both picking up accolades.
Falkirk Delivers won BID of the Year, and was names runner up for Best Campaign. According to BIDs Scotland, the award recognised the BID’s diverse projects and initiatives such as the annual Pirate & Princess parade, festive events and marketing, town centre Street Ambassadors and more.
Meanwhile Aberdeen Inspired won the Innovation award, and was runner up for best BID.
“Aberdeen Inspired’s leading role in delivering the hugely successful Nuart Aberdeen Festival in April played a significant part in the judging panel’s decision to rate the organisation so highly. As well as lobbying on behalf of its levy payers and supporting festivals like SPECTRA, the success of other Aberdeen Inspired projects such as the first Aberdeen Comedy Festival, Summer of Art, and the Aberdeen Christmas Village also helped the organisation to stand out”, stated BIDs Scotland.
In other BIDs news, businesses in Stirling have voted to establish a BID in the city.
