City Management Erlangen

Stand: 06.02.2023

For the good of the retail trade and the shopping city of Erlangen.

The City Management Erlangen (CM) exists since 1997 and unites over 120 city-oriented and city-interested companies from retail, local business, hotel industry, gastronomy and service companies.

Since April 2020, the CM is independently run as a registered association e.V.. These numerous committed members were able to significantly and noticeably increase the attractiveness and quality of experience in the heart of the city with the association in recent years. 

The CM is thereby mediator and action platform between its member companies as well as the economy, politics, administration and the many other forces in Erlangen. The common goal is to increase the attractiveness of the "shopping city of Erlangen" and thus the business location Erlangen to generate more visitors and purchasing power from the near and far surrounding area.

The CM oversees, accompanies and coordinates together with the partners and members most diverse projects or events in the city center for the benefit of retail and the shopping city of Erlangen.
