The NSW Government will kick off a series of regional roadshows for the hospitality and racing sectors on Tuesday 2 May in Newcastle.

The aim of the roadshows is to open direct lines of communications between the new state government and regional operators and share the government’s current regulatory priorities.

“The hospitality and racing industries are both important to our economy and have great potential to stimulate job growth across NSW,” stated Hospitality and Racing CEO Anthony Keon.

“The regulatory roadshows are a great opportunity for industry members from licensed venues and race clubs to learn how the NSW Government intends to work with them, and for us to hear from them directly about their perspectives and challenges.”

The first roadshow in Newcastle will cover topics including compliance trends and focus areas, an update on liquor license reforms, licensing trends and industry training changes. 

“The series will feature a range of speakers, interactive panel discussions and information booths showcasing the services available to the industries,” stated Keon.  

“We encourage liquor licensees and other key stakeholders to take this opportunity to engage with our regulators and provide valuable input on key issues affecting their sectors.” 

“Industry participants can hear first-hand the issues that we will be focusing on over the coming period and where we will be targeting our regulatory efforts.”

Keon emphasised that the roadshows would be an opportunity to build relationships and communication between the new government and hospitality and racing operators.

“The series serves as a great networking opportunity and chance to promote closer collaborations between the Government and industry stakeholders. 

“We are committed to working collaboratively with the hospitality and racing industries and help ensure our new priorities lead to tangible benefits for the sectors and wider community.”  

A second roadshow will be held in Bathurst on Tuesday 18 July, with two more to be announced for later in the year.
