2019 BID Funded Projects

Greater Manchester Visitor Survey

Working in a partnership with Marketing Manchester and Transport for Greater Manchester, Manchester BID co-funded the city’s 2018/19 Leisure Visitor Survey.

785 visitors told us why they visited, who they traveled with, where they had traveled from and what they did during their trip.  They fed back on where they looked for inspiration for their trip and on their overall visitor experience.

For the results presentation, please email Phil Schulze.
