Award categories

There are sixteen sector awards covering the main business sectors operating in the BID area. Plus, an excellent employee award for an individual, employed within a BID business. New for 2019, is a security/door staff award, to recognise the important role the security teams play at many BID businesses.

BID levy paying businesses may enter themselves into one of the following sector awards. Finalists will be scored based on a mystery shopping visit during November and a public vote in December/January. Retailers will also be scored based on exit interviews and night time economy business by a Best Bar None assessor. Winners will be announced at the awards ceremony at Watford Colosseum on 12 February 2019.

Watford BID: who we are
Established in April 2016, Watford Business Improvement District (BID) Ltd is an imaginative and dynamic not for profit organisation run by the businesses in Watford town centre.

Our vision is for Watford town centre to be the region’s premier centre for retail, leisure and business – a place where everyone enjoys spending time, that is well maintained with a variety of offerings; a place where businesses are thriving.

We run the town’s popular Watford For You brand, which is the one-stop-shop for anyone wishing to find out what’s happening in Watford. We are the organisation behind the town centre’s summer floral displays, the Watford Weekender event and the operator of the town’s festive lighting from 2016-2021.
