St Peters Quarter BID Renewal - Launch

SPQ logoA reminder that the Launch event for the BID renewal is this Wednesday 3 February at St Peters in the City commencing at 530pm until 630pm. All businesses in the St Peters Quarter BID area are welcome. 

 

 The event will be an opportunity to celebrate the success of St Peters Quarter BID over the last 5 years, and to launch the renewal process, looking at opportunities for the future. BIDs have a five year legal limit and beyond this have to go through the renewal process. Businesses in the area will have the opportunity to be involved in the development of the new business plan which, following a successful renewal, would lead us into another five year project.

 

It is very important for the renewal and ongoing success of businesses in the St Peters Quarter BID that we have an engagement from all sectors and sizes of business.
