We are the Night Time Industries Association

Check. Check. Check.

A campaign by the Night Time Industries Association


Check. Check. Check is a campaign to encourage patrons to comply with CovidSafe measures.

The Night Time Industries Association was originally established to champion Sydney’s night time economy. It then launched Keep Our Venues Alive when Covid hit. It’s now doing its bit to help the businesses that make Melbourne and Sydney vibrant cities, navigate the tough trading conditions imposed by the pandemic.

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?


Dedicated to change

In 2018 The Night Time Industries Association originally launched 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;

In March 2020 prompted by the impact of COVID-19 related physical distancing measures, the NTIA launched the Keep Our Venues Alive campaign which aims to mitigate the human impact on the hospitality sector (including venues and their supply chains), to help businesses in the sector trade to the best of their ability for so long as physical distancing measures prevail, and to position the sector for a rapid recovery as physical distancing abates.

Who we are

The Night Time Industries Association consists of: Hospitality (bars, pubs, clubs, restaurant); Entertainment venues; Festivals; Retail operators; Arts and Culture organisations; Precincts; Other Commercial Businesses with an interest in the Night time economy.
