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.

CityCo has been part of facilitating a new Homelessness Charter for Manchester, coordinated by The Manchester Homelessness Partnership. Businesses are encouraged to pledge their support.
Over 50 stores and restaurants will be taking part with special events, discounts and VIP shopping experiences.
It’s been a busy year for the city centre Business Improvement District – take a look at our achievements and plans for the year ahead.
Students flocked to the city centre on Tuesday night (19 April) to bag a bargain at the BID’s student shopping night with Manchester Arndale.
The BID has launched a Mystery Shopping campaign that will see Manchester retailers evaluated for the quality of their customer service.
