The NTIA is a Trade Association and Membership Organisation that promotes the unique contribution of The Night Time Industry in the UK and internationally.

  • Championing the enormously successful entrepreneurs who make Britain one of the most exciting international destinations for tourists.
  • Challenging the unfair treatment and attitudes currently being imposed upon the Night-Time Industry

Our members are serious about working and living in the areas their establishments exist within. NTIA is committed to encouraging members to engage with the local community to ensure conversations and understanding.

  • Communicating with decision-makers and helping to forge a “360-degree” approach whereby legislators, the police, local planning authorities and residents are all part of the national and local discussion to helping to continually improve business, culture and creativity in Britain.

Creative, passionate and full of energy, The NTIA represents the enormous success story that is the UK’s fifth biggest industry, which accounts for at least 8% of the UK’s employment and revenues of 66 Billion per annum (that’s 6% of the UK total).

The NTIA has been formed by independent bar, nightclub and restaurant owners, pubs, festival and live music event operators as well as music managers and other supporters of the benefits of the Night-Time Industry from the world of business, culture, media and politics.

We are owners and operators that represent the creative and entrepreneurial drive that makes Britain such an exciting country to visit and live in – as well as helping to forge some of the most talented people in the music industry who all cut their teeth in the venues of The NTIA.

We know that, whether it is London Fashion Week, Frieze Art Festival, The Brits, MOBO’s or The BAFTA’s, it is always at The Night Time Industry venues that people enjoy themselves and are entertained. It is also the melting pot and coming together experience that makes the UK a leader in the creative world.


  • NTIA lobbies nationally to ensure the success stories of the Night-Time Industry are heard and understood.
  • NTIA commissions Academic Research that demonstrates empirically the contribution of the Night-Time Industries to the UK.
  • NTIA will have an ongoing dialogue with senior leaders in the UK with regard to the importance of the Night-Time Industry.
  • NTIA promotes clarity with regard to crime statistics & shines a light on vague terms such as “Anti Social Behaviour” – while reminding everyone that the Night-Time Industries is the UK’s fifth largest sector and an enormous success story.
  • NTIA champions the cultural output that is created within and provided through the Night-Time Industries.
  • NTIA works with Think Tanks, research bodies and other groups to promote Night Time Industry.
  • NTIA will partner with affiliate groups that share our interests.
