Manchester BID is the city’s Business Improvement District.

We are a consortium of 400 leading retail and hospitality brands in the central shopping area.

The BID is managed by CityCo: The City Centre Management Company.

We connect the people, projects and ideas that are driving Manchester’s city centre economy.

We work in daily liaison with Manchester City Council, Transport for Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester Police, Marketing Manchester, Manchester’s homelessness charity networks, and other statutory bodies.

As an independent, not-for-profit organisation, we are committed to representing the interests of BID levy payers and offer a range of Business Services.

On behalf of BID retailers, we run a programme of successful public events in the heart of the city: The Manchester Flower Show, Halloween in the City, MCR Student Socials, Chinese New Year and Christmas celebrations.

BID LEVY PAYERS: Do ensure we have correct contact details to receive intel, invites and event communications.

Our virtual concierge service is here for BID levy payers and we’re the best-placed organisation to find out whatever it is you need to know about operating in Manchester city centre.
