Policy & Advocacy

As the peak body for our industry, our role is to protect and promote the interests of our Members. This includes:

  • Formulating industry codes of practice for areas such as ticketing, censorship, auditions, arts access, privacy and child employment
  • Sitting on relevant government and industry committees and working groups
  • Making submissions to government on behalf of our industry on current issues
  • Lobbying government on issues such as venue infrastructure and investment incentives for live productions and events
  • Conducting research and collecting data for the benefit of our Members and the industry. This includes the annual Ticket Attendance and Revenue Report, which values the overall worth of the industry to the cultural, economic and social life of Australia
  • Creating effective partnerships and strategic alliances with like-minded bodies and complementary industries
