Congratulations to the nominees and winners in 2018. Stay tuned for details of the competition in 2019.

Bath BID Awards are a new initiative for 2018 to highlight those organisations that are making a difference in our five areas of focus – Welcome, Smart, Safe, Clean and Prosperous.

Winners of each category will be presented with a Bath BID Award Certificate and £100 Bath Gift Card to be shared with their staff teams. Each winning organisation will be profiled in a feature in Business Exchange Magazine and will be shortlisted for the title of Bath BID Business Awards Champion.

The winners of each category were announced at the Bath BID AGM in October 2018.

Congratulations to Bath Aqua Glass who was crowned The Bath BID Award Champion 2018 at the Bath Business Awards at the end of November.
