BIMA is Britain's digital community. We drive innovation and excellence across the digital industry.
Connectors. Thought leaders. Champions. Change makers.
What we’re here to do
Our mission is to drive innovation and excellence across the digital industry. We are the connectors, thought leaders, champions and change makers determining the shape of Britain’s digital economy.
With dedicated networking events, featuring smart and friendly facilitation from the BIMA team, and with networking baked into everything we do, BIMA events are where the industry meets and makes connections. Our Directors Dinners give industry leaders a highly-valued private forum to resolve challenges and share opportunities with peers.
Deliver thought leadership
Our members benefit from 60+ thought leadership events per year, roundtables on specialist topics, white papers and masterclasses.
BIMA provides a public platform to recognise the thought leaders, innovators and rising stars who are fueling the new economy. Our awards vehicles include the Hall of Fame, BIMA 100 and BIMA Advance Awards.
BIMA’s work to tackle the skills gap starts in secondary schools with our powerful nationwide initiative, ‘Digital Day’. We are active at every stage of the talent pipeline, promoting apprenticeships and helping digital employers shape the relevancy of University course content and secure guest lectureships. Our inter-agency mentoring programme takes our members' teams to the next level.
Our strength is in our structure. We are powerful because our members make us so. BIMA councils set the agenda in digital hubs around the country and our Think Tanks aid industry leaders and practitioners to fuel the future. Our communities underpin everything that we do.
BIMA Communities come together to network, connect opportunities and share/ create knowledge and best practice. Communities are regional or practice led. Each community has an appointed Council that develops the wider community.
Think Tanks are communities, each with an appointed council, that explore, set standards and disseminate knowledge around emerging spheres of interest.
BIMA Groups, each with an appointed council, drive and realise BIMA’s purpose.
