The nightlife industry injects £66 billion into the UK economy every year. It creates 1.3 million jobs, attracts over 300 million tourists and plays a pivotal role in making this country such an attractive and vibrant place to visit.
The newly formed Night Time Industries Association (NTIA) is here to elevate the sector into the spotlight like never before. Formed with the support of key players on the bar, club, restaurant, pub, festival and live music scene, the NTIA gives a voice to the night-time industry, and ensures that its success stories are heard on both a local and national level.
A key role taken on by the NTIA is to debunk the mythical term that is “anti-social behaviour”, something they do by studying crime figures and shifting the focus instead on the huge plus points that the UK’s fifth largest sector brings to the table. The group lobbies policy-makers in Westminster, and consulted on the recent Report for the Mayor's Office for London, to back setting up the Music Development Board - an organisation created to support the interests of London’s famous live music scene. The NTIA is a strong advocate for the position of Night Time Economy Champion, to promote all of the Night Time Industries and benefits for all.
We at DesignMyNight, from the top of the company, support the actions and goals of the NTIA and urge the public to get behind any initiatives to ensure that the importance of the nightlife industry is placed at the heart of local and national policy decisions.
