We are the Night Time Industries Association

Here to promote Sydney as a vibrant and creative city, and to build a new positive narrative for Sydney’s nightlife.

Keep Our Venues Alive

Due to the rapid and unprecedented impacts of COVID-19, we have launched an urgent campaign to the government. We have called it Keep Our Venues Alive. The campaign is calling for government support for the hospitality sector.

Current Advocacy Focus

We believe that unless immediate cash flow support is extended, there will be sector-wide administration and insolvency. Our report urges the NSW Government to provide emergency loans to hospitality SMEs, and demonstrates their urgent need with accounts of real-life stories and experiences in the hospitality sector.

What is the vision of Sydney we want to work towards? Do we want a retirement village for young people? Or do we want a city that is vibrant, diverse, inclusive and inspiring?

— MICHAEL RODRIGUES, CHAIR

Dedicated to change

The objective of the Night Time Industries Association is to promote Sydney as a vibrant and creative city, and to build a new positive narrative for Sydney’s nightlife that includes:

  1. that Sydney is a fun and inspiring place to live, work and play;
  2. that Sydney’s nightlife contributes to the cultural value of the city; and
  3. nightlife stimulates creativity which is an important economic driver for NSW;

To achieve this objective the Night Time Industries Association will need to be active developing positive messaging and media and communications activities.
