- BID Manager
CityCo & Manchester BID work with a number of data suppliers to gather up-to-date city centre information including footfall, spend analysis, demographics and customer journey patterns.
We hope trend figures can help businesses compare and contrast with their own data sources, and help to inform day-to-day operations, future planning and investment.
Monthly CityCo City Centre Performance Briefing
We invite CityCo members and BID levy payers to hear more about the trends that are shaping our city. The briefing is a monthly call with CityCo and Manchester BID Chief Exec Vaughan Allen and Manchester BID Manager Phil Schulze – plus invited guests.
Areas covered include: city centre footfall and current sales trends, retail, hospitality, night-time economy and transport updates. And insights around visitor and customer demographics.
Invites to tune-in are circulated to CityCo and Manchester BID members/levy payers by email. Please ensure we have up-to-date company contacts to receive invites. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Weekly City Centre Footfall
Footfall cameras track numbers across the retail district; giving trends vs same weekly/monthly figures last year and 2019 (pre-Covid).
Weeks run Sunday to Saturday, with data provided by Springboard from 5 cameras: Market Street, St Ann’s Square, New Cathedral Street, King Street and Exchange Square (Arndale Steps).
We are currently reporting 2022 v 2019 to help track recovery against pre-pandemic.
