ANSWER: 2
 
Replace 'is' with 'are'. When subject of the sentence is - 'many', verb is always plural.

The correct sentence should be: The Manager says that there are many important details to attend before this gets launched.

When following words are used as subject in a sentence, verb is always plural.
Many, Both, Few, A few
e.g. Many were invited but a few have come.

Both are sad.

Similarly, for the following words; if the noun is plural, then verb is also plural.
Many of, Both of, Few of, A few of
