  • Airport City – a high-quality business destination, an advanced manufacturing district and a location for hotels and support services for Manchester Airport.
  • World Logistics Hub – a business district offering a full range of air-to-road transfer, assembly and processing activities including goods handling, storage and mode change.
  • MediPark – a 200-acre business park for life sciences and pharmaceutical companies adjacent to a major teaching hospital and international centre of medical research.

The Enterprise Zone offers businesses the very best connections from a unique setting that is:

  • Connected to Manchester City Centre by Metrolink, rail and road
  • Connected to the rest of the UK by motorways and intercity rail links
  • Connected to the world through Manchester’s international airport
  • Connected to the future with super-fast broadband

Greater Manchester is at the forefront of using new devolved powers to create powerful incentives in addition to the reduced business rates on offer in the Enterprise Zone.
