The Digbeth Business Forum hits the ground running

Posted by Andy Parker on June 11, 2018

The very first Digbeth Business Forum (DBF) was a resounding success last week!

Various faces from across the city’s Creative Quarter were at Zellig’s the Old Library on Tuesday 5th June to discuss how we can keep Digbeth moving forward. Furthermore, the exciting idea was mooted for the possibility of launching a Digbeth BID (Business Improvement Districts) for the continuing benefit of the blossoming region.

The evening, organised by Tiger Bam Communications (and with the Custard Factory, Zellig, the Old Crown and Gensler playing a key organisational role), featured presentations from Kieran McInerney (The Old Crown, Kanteen), Mel Richardson (Mel Richardson Consultancy, Newham BID Manager), and our very own Jo Salmon (Head of Asset Management, Oval Real Estate).

To communicate Digbeth’s message effectively the DBF will be working under three pillars under which we will propose our goals & projects to improve Birmingham’s iconic Creative Quarter; Culture – Commerce – Community.

Furthermore, the meet-up was concluded with a delicious summer BBQ at the Old Crown.

Very exciting times ahead for Digbeth!
