CityCo and Manchester BID run a programme of corporate events and through our city forums and business training we help members to have their opinion heard and operate effectively.

We support Manchester’s major civic events and festivals and run our own flagship public events to bring people into the city centre.

Manchester BID Events

Manchester BID is a Business Improvement District of 400 leading retailers and restaurants across the central shopping district, managed by The City Centre Management Company, CityCo.

The BID delivers an annual programme of public events to add vibrancy to the streets and attract people to shop, eat, drink and enjoy all our great city has to offer.

We’re proud to have brought some of the most innovative and PR-grabbing installations to the city centre as part of these events.

Take a look at our Roof-Top Halloween Monsters, Halloween ‘Haunted Maze’, Chinese New Year ‘Piglet’, Chinese New Year ‘Golden Dragon’, Chinese New Year ‘Warriors’.

Since the BID’s launch in 2013 we’ve also celebrated Eid, brought floral Show Gardens to the shopping streets at our award-winning summer festival Dig the City and hosted the super-stylish Vogue Fashion’s Night Out for the first time in Manchester.

With Covid-19 impact on face-to-face programmes, street and in-house events are suspended for the time being.
