Who We Are
Marketing Manchester is the agency charged with promoting Greater Manchester on the national and international stage and the region’s destination marketing organisation.
We are a not-for-profit business unit incorporated within the Growth Company; an economic and social development agency that includes employment services, skills, business support and organisational development.
We are funded through a combination of commercial revenue – including funding from Manchester Airport Group for international campaigns – and local public funds . We work closely in partnership with the Greater Manchester Combined Authority, VisitBritain and other destination management organisations, Department for International Trade and many key stakeholders, in addition to over 500 private sector partners.
It is our privilege to promote Greater Manchester to key sectors including: creative, digital & technology; science; advanced manufacturing; financial and professional services, as well as our underpinning leisure and business tourism sector. Our work is essential to the success of raising the profile of Manchester as a global city and strengthening its position as gateway to the north of England.
