The Colliers International Cities of Influence TLC index has named Manchester as one of Europe’s top influential cities. The combination of skilled and emerging talent, an accessible location, the affordable cost of living as well as the city’s work within the Northern Powerhouse has given Manchester a growing recognition and reputation on an international scale.
In his interview with MEN Business Andrew McFarlane, Director and head of the Manchester office of Colliers International, commented: “Manchester has worked hard to build its reputation as an international city.

The top 20 influential European Cities identified by Colliers International are:
