Hospitality and Racing is capping off a stellar year of industry engagement with the final Regulatory Roadshow of 2023 to be held at The Pavilion in Kiama.


This year, senior executives from the government regulator have visited Newcastle, Bathurst, Fairfield and inner Sydney to meet with hundreds of industry leaders across pubs, clubs and the racing industry.


Acting CEO Tarek Barakat said Kiama was a fitting final stop for the year given the Greater South Coast area has a plethora of pubs and clubs that would welcome thousands over the summer.


“Our Regulatory Roadshow series has been a huge success in 2023, enabling our teams to get out to the regions and speak directly with industry about the issues impacting them and their businesses,” Mr Barakat said.


“Ahead of the upcoming busy holiday season, we’re excited to be ending this year’s industry engagement in the beautiful town of Kiama, and look forward to meeting with and hearing from local businesses.”


Mr Barakat said the Regulatory Roadshows are a great way for managers and licensees of hospitality venues to network and learn more about what Hospitality and Racing does.


“As well as a chance to engage with our senior executive, you’ll hear from a range of speakers, participate in interactive panel discussions and find out more about Hospitality and Racing’s services through our information booths,” Mr Barakat said.


“There’s no better way for us to engage with industry than face to face at events like these.”


More than 100 industry leaders are expected to attend the Regulatory Roadshow on the South Coast, marking close to 600 attendees across the five events in Newcastle, Bathurst, Fairfield, inner Sydney and Kiama.
