CityCo and the Manchester BID run high-profile networking events and flagship public events to bring people into the city. We support Manchester’s major festivals and through our district forums and working groups, we help members to have their opinion heard and shape what happens here.

The PA Network

Our PA Network unites executive assistants with city centre businesses at informal, free events. CityCo and Manchester BID members have the opportunity to showcase brands to this influential group, whilst the PAs have the perfect platform to experience the best corporate hospitality in Manchester.

We link-up with venues and brand partners to offer VIP treats, experiences, talks and tours. Members benefit from recommendations, future bookings and positive PR.

We’ve hosted evenings at Selfridges, House of Fraser, Harvey Nichols, QMS Spa, Ziferblat, Kiehls, Hilton Manchester Deansgate, DoubleTree by Hilton, Manchester Art Gallery, Jigsaw, Hotel Football, Malmaison, Vapiano, Abode Hotel, Manchester City Football Club, Jury’s Inn Hotel, The Crystal Maze and The Bridgewater Hall.

The fantastic member venues already booked into the 2018 calendar include Marriott Victoria & Albert Hotel, Manchester Museum, INNSIDE Melia Hotel, Hard Rock Cafe, Black Dog Ballroom and Sam’s Chop House.

Manchester City Centre Venue Finder

We’ve put together a quick guide to help PAs find the ideal corporate venue suited to your needs. We hope this will prove useful when seeking to book anything from a meeting, co-working space, a dinner, Christmas do or convention.

The guide is a One-Stop-Shop to the great facilities CityCo and Manchester BID businesses have to offer. Casual, fine and/or private dining, suites, spa and gym facilities, wifi, co-working spaces, parking, conference and exhibition spaces for example.
