Drop in between 12pm-7pm

To discover more about social media marketing, preventing online fraud, making the most of your customer reviews – good or bad, and for guidance on environmental health matters, come to the Watford BID Business Event on Tuesday 7th February. These topics and many more will be discussed via a range of FREE workshops, available exclusively to BID businesses.


Doors will be open between 12pm and 7pm, so drop in at a convenient time to visit our exhibition stands manned by key business stakeholders, including Watford Borough Council, Herts Police and Trading Standards. It’s a chance to find out the latest on the major projects taking place in the town, to hear Elected Mayor Dorothy Thornhill’s overview on what’s going on in Watford and to talk to local experts who can offer helpful business advice. It’s also an opportunity to make valuable new business contacts.
