Information Exchange

In 2015 six Information Exchange events were held across NSW. The events provided communication and networking opportunities for stakeholders, and encouraged collaboration between industry, government and community representatives.

  • Liquor & Gaming NSW gained an understanding of stakeholders' priorities and created the Top Tips for Accords easy reference guide (PDF, 154KB), providing best practice guidelines and compliance audit tips.
  • Video of the Sydney CBD Information Exchange event was made available on YouTube.
  • A video case study 'Hung Over, You're Over' was developed as part of the event series, highlighting the benefits of collaboration to proactively address local alcohol-related issues. Watch the campaign video on YouTube.
