The Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing (OLGR) will be holding a number of free events for the hospitality industry at various locations throughout NSW to address alcohol-related harm.

The half day events will provide an opportunity for industry and community representatives to meet with liquor regulators and discuss strategies for promoting the responsible and safe consumption of alcohol, while supporting the local hospitality industry.

The first session of each event will include presentations by keynote speakers from OLGR, police and other government regulators on their roles. These presentations will focus on alcohol harm minimisation and what this means for licensed venues. These presentations will be followed by expert panel discussions including questions from participants.
