The US government’s Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is hosting an online sales ticket workshop in June.
The forum, entitled That’s the Ticket, will look into the ticket sales marketplace, consider industry-wide advertising and pricing issues, and discuss ways to address deception beyond traditional law enforcement.
Topics will include ticket bots, the Better Online Ticket Sales Act (BOTS Act), the resale ticket market, disclosures of pricing and fees, and possible consumer confusion about search engine ads and websites of resellers.
Commissioner Rebecca Slaughter will offer opening remarks, with the full agenda to be announced close to the event.
For those unable to make it to Washington DC on June 9, the FTC will be webcasting the event live.
