Liquor & Gaming NSW is committed to supporting and educating our stakeholders to ensure a safe, compliant and vibrant liquor industry. As part of our education and support strategy, we drive collaboration and engagement across all stakeholders. We work with industry, government and community, to encourage innovative and successful strategies to minimise and address alcohol-related harm. We take a risk-based, evidence-informed approach to providing support services, and use technology to share key updates and resources more broadly.
The Information Exchange events aimed to provide communication and networking opportunities for stakeholders and encourage collaboration between industry participants, government and community representatives. In late 2015 six events were held across NSW, including Batemans Bay, Blacktown, Coffs Harbour, Dubbo, Sydney CBD and Wagga Wagga.The events provided key stakeholders, such as liquor accord groups, NSW Police Force, NSW Health, local councils and community groups with liquor regulation information, best practice and the opportunity for open dialogue on networking and collaboration ideas.

Based on this we developed a Top Tips resource.The Top Tips for Accords easy reference guide (PDF, 154KB) offers guidelines for best practice and assists venues prepare for compliance audits.

Developed as part of the Information Exchange events, the Hung Over, You're Over campaign case study highlights the benefits of collaboration to proactively address local alcohol-related issues. Hung Over, You're Over is a Northern Beaches drink driving awareness campaign which educates the community about the risks of driving the morning after a night out. The campaign was developed in response to a high level of drink driving offences in the local area.
