They currently have a balance sheet surplus of £330,000
The organisation reports that it had a successful Christmas and claims “continuing strong performance from Shambles Market, City Centre Activities and Visit York Membership”
No detail is provided on the Shambles market performance.
The brief report to a “shareholder “ meeting also says that the “York Pass” initiative has been less successful than hoped.
Looking to the future the report says, “MIY currently runs or facilitates a range of events which animate the public realm and make the city vibrant and interesting for visitors and residents. There is scope though to use the “stage” provided to do, and to facilitate, a great deal more, the ultimate objective being to ensure a daily “wow” factor”
