The Bournemouth Town Centre BID has appointed a new manager
Caron Khan joins the Town Centre BID with expertise spanning several areas, from marketing and media relations to event management. Caron has been running her own Dorset based creative consultancy for the last 7 years and has over 20 years experience in the media and marketing industry – including the delivery of notable events such as the Bournemouth University’s BFX Festival, the award-winning Christchurch Food Festival, and ‘Pride in Bournemouth’ a public art event which saw 50 life size lion sculptures installed on Bournemouth’s streets during the summer of 2011.
Caron Khan said: ‘My love for where I live is my chief inspiration and I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to head up the Town Centre BID for my home town. Bournemouth town centre has a fantastic mix of shopping, cafes, bars and restaurants as well as beautiful gardens and this is an exciting time for the town. Tangible signs of progress such as the new Hilton Hotel, the start of the development of the West Central leisure complex and improvements made to Horseshoe Common all contribute to the appeal of the town centre, encouraging footfall which can only benefit the businesses of Bournemouth’.
Lisa Tucker, Chair of Town Centre BID said: ‘We are delighted to have Caron on board. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience that will support the promotion of our town centre. We are very much looking forward to working together’.11
