Experts from peak associations, councils, cultural and sporting institutions and businesses within the sector are invited to express their interest in being a member of the 24-Hour Economy Advisory Group. Applications close 5pm Wednesday 5 October 2022.

About Us

NSW Government is determined to unlock the potential and grow jobs across our 24-Hour Economy. As we rebuild from the COVID-19 pandemic, supporting a vibrant, safe and diverse 24-hour economy will enhance NSW’s standing as a global destination.

To help us achieve this, a 24-Hour Economy Group was established in 2021, comprising a diverse range of stakeholders to support the delivery of the 24-Hour Economy Strategy, and a range of other workstreams and initiatives.

The group works closely with the Office of the 24-Hour Economy Commissioner and other NSW Government stakeholders. It provides a platform for stakeholders to submit ideas and feedback, based on the views and experiences of their communities.

The Opportunity

The first cohort of the 24-Hour Advisory Group has just completed its 12-month tenure, and we thank them for their invaluable contributions.

 We are now seeking Expressions of Interest (EOIs) from organisations to be a member of the next iteration of the 24-Hour Economy Advisory Group.

 EOIs are encouraged from organisations including peak associations, councils, cultural and sports institutions and businesses within the 24-hour economy sector.
