Associate Membership

Give it a GO!

Now you can join 600+ businesses in Southampton who are striving to make the city better for business. They are all part of Go! Southampton, the Business Improvement District (BID) for the city.

GO! Southampton’s Associate Membership scheme allows businesses outside the BID area and those under the BID threshold to join up and share in benefits including:

  • Group procurement: Saving you money on bills by harnessing the power of mass buying.
  • Promotion of your business on GO! Southampton’s Social Media platforms and at events attended by GO! Southampton such as Southampton Boat Show, Open days and Freshers’ Fairs.
  • LoyalFree: Local loyalty app, giving residents and visitors access to exclusive offers and encouraging them to visit your business.
  • Opportunities to get involved in new and exciting events such as Foodie Fortnight, Southampton Cocktail Week, Seaside in the Square and the Comedy Central Festival fringe.
  • Access to reports and data on city centre statistics
  • Enhanced street cleaning services (if your business is within the BID area)

There are two categories of membership available:

1) If your business is within the BID area but is below the rateable value threshold (see the map overleaf)

– Fixed fee of £225 per year.

2) If your business is outside the BID area

– Contact us and we will calculate your fee. It will be equivalent to 50% of the BID levy on your property, up to a maximum of £2,500.
