managing & marketing city centre manchester

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, ideas and projects that 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 and we run the city’s first Business Improvement District (BID). We help businesses 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, the Heart of Manchester BID. 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 guide book, City Hosts, Chinese New Year celebrations, Student shopping nights, MCR Retail Awards and Manchester’s summer garden festival Dig the City. Take a look at the 2014/15 Annual Report here.
