Revive & Thrive Events 2017

We are busy planning our calendar of regeneration events for 2017 and on the look out for exciting and inspiring venues. Revive & Thrive regeneration events this year will include two national conferences and multiple regional events and then many smaller more local networking meetings to cover issues you are facing locally to you. Revive & Thrive Events

Could your town or city host an event?

17th March – Revive & Thrive South West Regional Meeting


Revive & Thrive is hosting a regional networking meeting in Exeter from 10.00, Friday 17th March at the Princesshay Management Suite in Exeter (EX1 1EU).

Our speakers for the day will be –  

  • Karen Street, Business Rates Retention Officer
  • Dean Emery, Principal Revenues & Debt Recovery Officer
Revive & Thrive Events
South West Revive & Thrive Events sponsored by BIDBase

Both are from Taunton Deane Borough council and will talk about all things rates and revaluation and the new system.  

The impact of these changes is going to affect some towns and cities more than others. BIDs in particular will have a special interest in this topic, and other towns will want to know what the impact is likely to be to businesses on their High Streets.

Our hosts, Exeter BID, will present their progress to date since coming into existence in July 2015; the pressures to deliver, their achievements to date and their plans for the coming year.  

Over lunch there will also be an opportunity for you share your town’s achievements, ideas and concerns with others in a round table discussion.

After lunch you are welcome to take a stroll around the great city of Exeter in your own time, or guided by the Exeter BID team. Revive & Thrive Events

This event is kindly sponsored by BIDBase.  BIDBase is a powerful online database system designed specifically for Business Improvement Districts
