Brand Awareness

CityCo is committed to raising the profile and standing of Manchester as the leading business and visitor destination. A key strand of our work for Manchester BID is delivering high-profile public events in the city centre that attract footfall and positive press, and they offer plenty of promotional opportunities for members.

The calendar includes Chinese New Year celebrations, Halloween, Manchester Flower Festival and the MCR Student Social – a shopping event in partnership with Manchester Arndale.

Members benefit from:

  • Invitations to participate in, partner, or sponsor, BID events -benefitting from multi-channel PR and marketing activity. Events have delivered £22 million+ AVE (advertising value equivalent) of media exposure, featuring across national news titles, TV, radio, online and social.
  • Exclusive invitations to host relevant CityCo network events such as the Manchester Pub & Club Network meetings, and The PA Network (500+ corporate hospitality bookers).
  • Preferred supplier status where relevant.
