On Monday, 6 December Cheltenham Business Improvement District (BID) hosted the first of two festive networking events at the Queens Hotel. The morning saw a variety of Professional Services businesses within the Cheltenham BID zone get a chance to network with other local businesses whilst enjoying some light refreshments in the beautiful Queens Hotel. After the networking session, our BID businesses were invited to join us for a skating session on Cheltenham’s all-weather ice rink located in Imperial Gardens, Montpellier.  

Lisa Hudson joined us from The Workplace – a co-working space which has recently opened a second site at Star Lodge in Montpellier. She had this to say about the event: “I really enjoyed attending the Cheltenham BID event at the Queens Hotel. Having the opportunity to meet other people from a variety of different businesses was interesting and informative. Sometimes the links needed between businesses can be small but have the potential to help support and attract new clients. Skating after a light lunch was a refreshing way to spend Monday lunchtime.”  

Our second event is this coming Monday, 13 December and we hope to see many more of our BID businesses there. In addition to networking and ice skating, there will also be a prize draw for all attendees to win either a £25 Cheltenham Gift Card or £25 worth of vouchers to spend at Cheltenham Christmas Market.
