Commemorating Manchester’s achievements in the last twenty years


15 June 2016 marks the 20th anniversary of the 1996 Manchester bombing; this date is widely regarded as the starting point of Manchester’s 21st century regeneration.

Here at Alliance Manchester Business School we’re celebrating the city’s achievements and the regeneration that has taken place over the last 20 years. We are interested to hear your thoughts and discover what you believe to be the key moments that define the City’s changes.

Give us your views on key business milestones, research, events, and successes over the past twenty years.

Key dates which have taken place over the past twenty years, include:

1996 Marks and Spencers confirmed that it would build its largest store in Manchester
2002 Manchester hosted the Commonwealth Games
2006 Beetham Tower was completed as is the largest building outside of London
2012 MediaCity UK, the new home of the BBC, ITV as well as many other media and digital companies, opens at Salford Quays
2014 Northern Powerhouse initiative announced


We want to hear your thoughts on Manchester’s achievements and invite you to join the conversation on Twitter by tweeting @MBSnews with the hashtag #mcrmeans.

The opinions we receive will be collated to create an infographic of Manchester’s achievements which will be released later this month.
