Global Marketing and Perception

Over the last few years, Greater Manchester has successfully continued to communicate its story to the world, making strides to increase its rankings in a range of global indices.

As a city-region with a long history of international appeal and success, we regularly outrank large competitor regions to join capital cities in global indices and in September 2021 Time Out ranked Manchester as the 3rd best city in the world.

The GMCA will continue working with Marketing Manchester and our wider partners to continue positioning Greater Manchester as a globally leading digital and low carbon city-region with strong sector assets, universities and significant sporting and cultural assets, making the city-region a great place to visit, invest, meet and study.
