Let us inspire your city...

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.


Did you know?

Aberdeen is the first city in Scotland to be crowned Best European BID (Business Improvement District) 2017 by the Association of German Chambers of Commerce and Industry in Berlin.

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.

As well as lobbying on behalf of its levy payers and supporting festivals and projects in the city, the success of other Aberdeen Inspired projects such as the first Aberdeen Comedy Festival, Summer of Art, and the Aberdeen Christmas Village also helped the organisation to stand out against other finalists, including Amsterdam and Hamburg.
