CityCo Board

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.
