About CityCo Manchester

Manchester is a global city, proud of its roots and of its future. It has survived downturn and turmoil thanks to its ability to work as one, to build partnerships between businesses, and between business and the public sector. For the past 27 years, CityCo has been at the heart of this partnership.

By working together, we are continually striving to make the city a better place to visit, to work and to live.
