ACS Supports National Licensing Week 2019

ACS (the Association of Convenience Stores) is supporting National Licensing Week (17th-21st June) and is encouraging retailers to get involved by using this week to showcase the work that they do in their communities.

National Licensing Week was established in 2016 by the Institute of Licensing to raise awareness about the role of licensing in our everyday lives. The underlying message of this week is that ‘licensing is everywhere’ and day one of National Licensing Week focuses on ‘Positive Partnerships’.

Night Time Economy Solutions: Our guide to getting the most from National Licensing Week #NLW2019

Everyone, every day is affected by licensing, whether we work in the industry or not. Catching a taxi, eating at a restaurant, gambling in a casino, playing bingo or taking a trip to the theatre are all experiences controlled by licensing. Pretty much everything you can think of that happens in a public place – especially at night time – is governed by licensing laws.

Licensing is one of the key factors in keeping the public safe while we enjoy our chosen leisure activity, yet many do not realise its impact or importance.

Securing event licences depends on positive partnerships

Event organisers that develop positive partnerships with local agencies and community groups are more likely to identify issues that might hinder the successful staging of their event in advance and secure a licence allowing them to operate.
