Michael Rodrigues

Chair, Night Time Industries Association & MD, Time Out (ANZ)

"What is the vision of Sydney we want to work towards? Do we want a retirement village for young people? Or do we want a city that is vibrant, diverse, inclusive and inspiring?" 

The objective of the Night Time Industries Association is to promote Sydney as a vibrant and creative city, and to build a new positive narrative for Sydney’s nightlife that includes:

- that Sydney is a fun and inspiring place to live, work and play;

- that Sydney’s nightlife contributes to the cultural value of the city; and

- nightlife stimulates creativity which is an important economic driver for NSW;

To achieve this objective the Night Time Industries Association will need to be active developing positive messaging and media and communications activities.

Mike has also helmed Time Out in Australia for the past ten years, burrowing deep into the arts, culture and hospitality verticals that underpin his business. These days he draws upon audience data to identify audience trends in the consumption of city-based entertainment, combining it with sector knowledge to help institutions and businesses answer the question: will people come to my stuff now, tomorrow and in the future?

In recent years Time Out has evolved beyond its publishing roots. In 2014, Time Out Lisbon editors turned a historic market hall in the city into Time Out Market, thus creating the world’s first food and cultural market, and the first market experience rooted wholly in editorial curation. A place that previously housed the city’s top vendors now brings together the best of the city under one roof: its best restaurants, bars and cultural experiences, based on the editorial curation Time Out has always been known for.

In 2017, 3.6 million visitors came to the market to explore excellent food from 32 restaurants and kiosks, enjoy drinks from eight bars and cafes, buy from five shops, attend cooking workshops in the Chef’s Academy or events in the Time Out Studio, a 900-capacity entertainment venue. 
It has rapidly become the most popular attraction in Portugal
In 2019, new Time Out Markets are set to open in Miami, New York, Boston, Chicago and Montreal
