Brand Awareness

CityCo and Manchester City Centre BID are committed to raising the profile and standing of Manchester as the leading business and visitor destination. A key strand of our work for the City Centre BID and Accommodation BID is delivering high-profile public events in the city centre that attract footfall and positive press.

They offer plenty of promotional opportunities for members. The calendar includes Chinese New Year celebrations, Halloween, The Manchester Flower Festival and the MCR Student Social – a shopping event in partnership with Manchester Arndale.

Businesses benefit from:

  • Invitations to participate in, partner, or sponsor, BID events -benefiting 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
  • Preferred supplier status where relevant.
