WHAT WE DO
At its core, the Manchester Accommodation BID will deliver better visitor experiences and additional activity to drive more staying visitors. It will allow Manchester to better compete in a global market and grow overnight visits at a time when an unprecedented level of supply is set to join the Manchester and Salford accommodation market, with an additional 5,850 confirmed new bedrooms incoming across the city-region over the next few years.
The Manchester Accommodation BID funds will be used to: amplify marketing campaigns that drive overnight stays; help secure large-scale events, conferences, and festivals in low-season months; improve guest welcome and street cleanliness; and provide opportunities to futureproof the city’s growing accommodation sector and wider visitor economy.
A business plan has been developed to support the direction of a successful Manchester Accommodation BID; annual delivery plans will be developed in consultation with businesses and will be subject to Board approval.
Manchester Accommodation BID Subvention for the Business Visits and Events sector is now open to applications subject to the following criteria and conditions.
