managing & marketing city centre manchester
CityCo is a membership organisation that connects businesses with each other, and public agencies, to drive forward initiatives that support an improved, thriving and aspirational city experience. We seek to support economic growth and ensure the city is competing on national and international scale.
We represent companies across sectors, sizes and locations; giving businesses a voice, ensuring they can run effectively and expand activities. We operate at both a strategic level with city decision-makers and on a tactical level, providing solutions and delivering on the ground. We report to a Board of the city’s influential business leaders.
CityCo manages Manchester’s first Business Improvement District (BID) – Heart of Manchester.
Running for 5 years, the BID is an opportunity to build on our successes, energy and optimism to make Manchester as successful as we know it can be. The Business Plan has been led by city centre retailers and focuses on delivering promotional and customer service initiatives. This marks the starts of an exciting opportunity for the city.
Dig the City, Manchester’s urban gardening festival will transform the city 3-11 August. Launching the exciting calendar of events is Monty Don, the UK’s leading horticulturalist and presenter of Gardener’s World.
This summer, Manchester becomes a garden city. From King Street to the Cathedral, via fine food, flowers and a fête, with markets, workshops and public art – join us for Manchester’s urban gardening festival.
