Welcome to Swansea BID
Since we were founded in 2006, we have invested more than £6 million in the BID area. As the first BID in Wales, we are proud to have been a trailblazer for subsequent BIDs, leading the way on investment, ideas and results. Being in operation for circa thirteen years we have delivered a huge amount of projects, schemes and services that have made a difference and continue to do so day in day out.
Committed to change
Since our inception and introduction to Swansea, we’ve helped transform the city centre through continued growth, marketing and management. We celebrate the city’s strengths, successes and appeal. We recognise the city’s uniqueness and help plug gaps through vital collaboration with BID businesses, delivering projects with oomph and energy throughout the city centre.
As well as responding to the needs of BID businesses, we help provide a sense of belonging and place. We achieve this through investing in the BID area, making it more welcoming, better connected and promoted. Through our environmental initiatives, we endeavour for the city’s presentation to be as clean and safe as it can be. We believe in retaining talent and refining skills, helping the city centre’s overall reputation to grow and grow.
There are always plenty of exciting events happening in the city centre! Keep checking in for info and news on the latest, upcoming dates, and make a note in your diary for the ones you like the look of the most.
