managing & marketing city centre manchester

CityCo works to make Manchester a vibrant, prosperous, international city. We connect businesses and public agencies, bringing together the people, ideas and projects that make great things happen. As part of our city centre, you’re part of the story, part of what makes the city tick and part of what makes our city succeed.

We look after 1,000 businesses, from international head offices to SMEs and from independent restaurants to retailers. We run high-profile networking events, Manchester’s Business Improvement District – the Heart of Manchester BID and The PA Network. We host flagship events that bring people into the city and we work with city stakeholders, connecting and shaping what happens here.

As a member, we help you to have your opinion heard, expand activities and connect with the right people at the right time. Read more about what we do.
