About Us

CityCo is The City Centre Management Company and we manage Manchester Business Improvement District (BID).

We connect the people, projects and ideas that are driving forward the city centre economy.

As an independent, not-for-profit, membership organisation, we are committed to representing the interests of our members.

We are the place where the private and public sectors meet. We work in daily liaison with Manchester City Council, Transport for Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester Police, Marketing Manchester, Manchester’s homelessness charity networks, and other statutory bodies.

Alongside CityCo business services, we manage Manchester BID – a consortium of 400 leading retail and hospitality brands and a number of other sector networks.

We help organisations to operate effectively, and with resilience, in our growing and changing city. CityCo’s extensive cross-sector network allow for the sharing of city plans, discussion and action-planning around developments, business challenges and opportunities.

We help members to have their opinion heard, expand activities, and connect with the right people at the right time.

We are all part of the evolving story of Manchester as a thriving place to invest, work, visit and live.
