Brand Awareness

CityCo, Manchester City Centre BID and Manchester Accommodation BID are committed to raising the profile and standing of Manchester as the leading business and visitor destination.

A key strand of our work 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, The Manchester Flower Festival, MCR Student Social, Halloween in the City, Beyond the Music and SCENE: Manchester LGBTQ+ Film & TV Festival.

Businesses benefit from:

  • Invitations to participate in, partner, or sponsor events
  • Benefit from multichannel PR and marketing activity
  • Events so far have delivered £23 million+ AVE (advertising value equivalent) of media exposure, featuring across national news titles, TV, radio, online and social.
