Promoting Greater Manchester

We're encouraging people from all over the world to visit, study, work and do business in Greater Manchester.

High-impact marketing and a strong tourism infrastructure is building on the city-region's reputation as a vibrant international destination. One million international visitors a year bring in £7bn and 90,000 jobs.

As a place to do business, we've put Greater Manchester at the heart of the ‘Northern Powerhouse’. Cutting edge science, digital, technical, and modern manufacturing initiatives enhance our international name, and encourage more investment.

Major international conferences, sports and arts events make significant contributions to the region's economy and reputation.
