The Growth Company is working to transform the economy of Greater Manchester, delivering growth and prosperity to the city region, providing the research and analysis to drive policy and delivery, raising Manchester’s profile, attracting investment, helping businesses grow and providing individuals with new skills and employment opportunities.
In support of the Greater Manchester Strategy, we aim to improve the perceptions of Greater Manchester nationally and internationally as a leading business, leisure and learning destination; to attract visitors and investors, grow a highly skilled workforce and drive sustainable economic growth.
Our remit is to increase the interest in, and visitors to Manchester, by positioning the city-region as a vibrant international destination, which acts as a gateway to the UK.
Through the services of Marketing Manchester and MIDAS, we ensure that Manchester is further established as one of Europe’s leading business destinations, whilst also supporting the enhancement of the tourism product in Greater Manchester through the development of its tourism infrastructure.
The Internationalisation and Marketing Advisory Board provides strategic direction and oversight to Marketing Manchester on the delivery of the Greater Manchester Internationalisation strategy and action plan. The Greater Manchester Internationalisation Strategy was commissioned by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) and the Greater Manchester Local Enterprise Partnership (GM LEP), and following consultations with partners across Greater Manchester and the UK, the Strategy sets out how Greater Manchester aims to achieve its long-term vision to become a top global city by 2035.
