CityCo and Manchester BID run high-profile CitySessions and through our city forums and business training we help members to have their opinion heard and operate effectively. We support Manchester’s major civic events and festivals and run our own flagship public events to bring people into the city.

City Centre Events

Manchester stages the best events and we are part of the picture.

CityCo and Manchester BID support the city’s civic and public festivals,  conferences at Manchester Central, concerts and events at Manchester Arena, Old Trafford and Lancashire County Cricket Club and major city centre festivals such as Manchester Day, Manchester Pride, Manchester International Festival and Manchester’s Christmas Markets.

We also run our own events to bring people into the heart of Manchester city centre. BID events include Chinese New Year and Halloween in the City, The King Street Festival and MCR Student shopping nights in partnership with Manchester Arndale.
