Headline Spend Data

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.
