City Forums and Lobbying

CityCo and Manchester BID run and represent members at a range of city forums. As your constant champions, we have an influential role in lobbying local authorities, transport organisations and other public agencies.

We keep business interests at the forefront of a city that’s always changing.

To assist members we run a number of forums to resolve area-specific issues and represent businesses at a range of other committees attended by partners including Manchester City Council, Salford City Council, Marketing Manchester, Visit Salford, Transport for Greater Manchester and Greater Manchester Police.

The meetings allow for networking, sharing of plans and discussion around developments, challenges and opportunities for our growing cities.
