Federal Trade Commission Workshop on Online Event Ticket Sales

Online event ticket sales have been a common topic of complaints filed with the Federal Trade Commission so much so that the Commission has announced it will hold a public workshop on March 27, 2019.  The Release states, “Issues that frequently arise in connection with online event ticket sales include practices that prevent consumers from obtaining tickets, mislead consumers about price or availability, or mislead consumers about the entity from which they are purchasing.” The Commission is seeking public input and the submission deadline is December 5, 2018.
