“This is a hugely important time for the sector as we rebuild… we still have much to do to firstly get our industries back to pre-pandemic strength and then make Australia one of the greatest countries in the world for nightlife. I’m really looking forward to working with all our members to deliver real change.”
— JUSTINE BAKER – NTIA Chair
Why we exist

What have we been up to?
The NTIA was originally established to promote Sydney as a vibrant and creative city, and to build a new positive narrative for Sydney’s nightlife.
In 2020, the NTIA ran two major COVID-19 related campaigns, both with the goal of supporting night time venues through the difficulties presented by the pandemic and supporting a rapid recovery. The Keep Our Venues Alive campaign launched when COVID-19 hit to help businesses, and the Check. Check. Check campaign followed, encouraging patrons to comply with COVID-Safe measures.
2021 has proven eventful so far. The year started promisingly, with the removal of the lockout laws in Sydney, something NTIA has campaigned for since 2018. Since then, NTIA has been unrelenting in its advocacy work following a changeover in the Chair role – from the newly appointed NSW 24- Hour Economy Commissioner, Michael Rodrigues, to ex-Solotel CEO, Justine Baker.
