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.

Manchester BID Events

Manchester’s Business Improvement District (BID) is a consortium of 400 premium retailer and restaurants in the shopping district managed by CityCo.

We run an annual programme of public events and festivals in the heart of Manchester to bring the streets to life and attract people to shop, eat, drink and enjoy all our great city has to offer.
