Club owners, promoters, festival programmers, Keep Sydney Open chairman Tyson Koh and politicians like Greens MP Jenny Leong and City of Sydney Councillor Jenny Green will all be there. Coalition representatives have been invited.

The roundtable will discuss how the industry and government can work together moving forward to remove lockouts and restore Sydney’s status as a global city. inthemix will be recording the conversation at Parliament House and you can head back to the site on Friday to find out what was discussed.
