Visit Manchester sends out a bi-monthly e-newsletter specifically for the travel trade.

Whatever your client is looking to do we have ideas and suggestions for itineraries that are sure to come in useful. These sample itineraries cover everything from sports or shopping, to industrial heritage or arts and culture.
