The Night Time Industries Association (NTIA) has unveiled a new board with five new members joining three other senior leaders from across the night-time sector.

Figures joining the board are Lisa Havilah, Chief Executive, Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences; Greg Holland, CEO, Spirits & Cocktails Australia; Emily Collins, Managing Director, Music NSW, Kylie Moncur, Chief Marketing Officer, Australian Venue Co. and Justine Baker, CEO, Solotel Group, co-founder of the NTIA who rejoins the board.

They complement existing board members, Rennie Addabbo, Managing Director Sonos Asia Growth Markets; Kenny Graham, founder and owner, Mary’s Group. The NTIA will continue to be chaired by Time Out Australia Managing Director, Michael Rodrigues.

Commenting on the changes, Rodrigues said: “As the NTIA enters just its third year of operations, it is fantastic to unveil an expanded board of industry heavyweights from across the sector. They will bring huge amounts of expertise and influence to the Association.

“Although 2020 was an incredibly difficult year for the night-time economy, the NTIA continued to grow as an organisation, with new members joining, and public campaigns aimed at sector recovery. The latest of these Check.Check.Check accompanied Victoria’s successful reopening, after its initial phase was well received by  consumers, industry and government in NSW.

“We look towards 2021 with a renewed sense of purpose and will be at the heart of reviving nightlife across Australia following the pandemic.”

Last Thursday’s NTIA’s AGM was followed by a member forum entitled ‘The Return of the Mirrorball’ during which Minister for Customer Service, Victor Dominello and Member for Sydney Alex Greenwich addressed NTIA members and guests.
