Membership & Commercial

Rather than having a membership programme that you only hear from once a year when the bill is due, we want to actively engage with our members to offer a wide range of marketing opportunities, ways to save money and networking opportunities.

The trick is to subscribe to (and then read) our weekly newsletter which covers everything from being involved in campaigns to training courses.

For those businesses not wanting to be members, the team offer a range of ‘pay as you play’ opportunities for advertising.

Faye Batchelor Profile

Faye Batchelor - Membership and Commercial Manager

How long have you been with Visit Bristol and what do you do?

I joined Visit Bristol in November 2014 and my primary role is to develop and support the membership programme. This involves liaising with existing members on a daily basis to ensure they are maximising all areas of their membership, keeping up to date with all things new in the city (which can be quite a task at times) and managing the commercial opportunities available at Visit Bristol. I also coordinate the regular members’ forums which take place every few months and our annual conference which is held in November.

Do you have a typical day?

My days are very varied which is one of the things I love about my role as I get to meet so many different people as well as discover areas of the city that I am less familiar with. However an example day would usually consist of a couple of meetings visiting existing or potential members and this could be with a restaurant, hotel, zoo, activity centre or sports stadium for example. Once back in the office I can be found updating member’s listings on, writing the weekly industry newsletter or chatting to businesses in the city about all things Visit Bristol.

What’s your top tip for businesses working with Visit Bristol?

Keep us up to date with everything you are doing however small you think it may be and make sure you are fully utilising all benefits of your membership (sorry, that’s 2 tips).
