CityCo strives to make Manchester city centre a better place to work, visit and live. We all want Manchester to be a thriving, competitive and sustainable international city. At CityCo, we connect businesses with public agencies, bringing together the people and ideas to make great things happen.

CityCo is your city centre management company. It is an independent membership organisation. Our business network covers all sizes, sectors and locations across the city centre. We help you to shape what happens here, expand activities and connect with the right people at the right time. Read about how you can benefit from membership.

We report to a Board of the city’s influential business leaders. Read about what we do.

CityCo manages Manchester’s first Business Improvement District (BID) – Heart of Manchester. Running for 5 years, the BID is an opportunity to build on our successes, energy and optimism to make Manchester as successful as we know it can be.

The business plan has been led by city centre retailers and focuses on delivering promotional and customer service initiatives such as our Where to Go Manchester Guide Book, City Hosts, Chinese New Year celebrations and Manchester’s urban gardening festival Dig the City.
