Manchester’s Business Improvement District is a working consortium of 400+ retailers and restaurants across the heart of Manchester. We offer a range of business services, offer expert advice, host events and take action to make the shopping district a better place to be.

The BID was renewed in December 2017 for a second term, following a 77% vote in favour of continuing until at least 2023. The BID is managed by CityCo, the city centre management company for Manchester and Salford.
