About CityCo Manchester

CityCo, The City Centre Management Company, is the main membership organisation representing the business community in the city centre.

Through various networks, we bring together over 1500 businesses. Our focus is to support Manchester’s vitality and resilience by bringing businesses together with each other, and with the city’s public agencies.

We work across every business sector and represent the needs of business with public sector partners such as Manchester City Council, Transport for Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester Police, Marketing Manchester, and many others.  We offer advice and help in planning new projects, link members together, and ensure there is public sector awareness of what the private sector needs to thrive.

Members are in the best company. Our networks include Manchester’s leading names. From head offices to independents, property developers to professional services, cultural attractions to bars and hotels.

Part of our work is also to manage The City Centre Business Improvement District (Manchester BID), incorporating retailers, hospitality operators and office tenants. We are also delivery partners for Manchester’s new Accommodation BID (ABID), representing hoteliers, and we run the Manchester Business Crime Reduction Partnership (BCRP) and manage the Manchester Pub and Club Network.

This means we support hundreds of city centre businesses, across multiple sectors, locations, and of very different sizes.

By bringing influential people together and providing expert guidance, the aim is to the make the city work for everyone in the private sector.
