European BID of the year, Aberdeen Inspired is Aberdeen City Centre’s Business Improvement District that represents over 700 city centre businesses within the city centre.
Funded by both levy payers and voluntary contributions, Aberdeen Inspired works hard to help improve and effect positive change in our city centre.
Aberdeen Inspired’s leading role in delivering the successful Nuart Aberdeen Festival in April played a significant part in the judge’s decision to declare the organisation as the winner of the 2017 award.
