Manchester BID is the city centre’s Business Improvement District.

A consortium of 400 leading retail and hospitality brands.

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.

As an independent, not-for-profit membership organisation, we are committed to representing the interests of our networks. 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.

We offer a range of Business Support Services and on behalf of BID levy payers, run a programme of public events in the heart of the city.
