Today’s the day we open the hood to explore competition issues around state regulation of motor vehicle distribution. If you can’t attend our day-long workshop, watch the live webcast using the LIVE WEBCAST link on the Auto Distribution workshop page. Morning panels will cover regulation of dealer networks and warranty reimbursement, while afternoon panels will cover direct-to-consumer sales, and future trends such as autonomous vehicles and car sharing services. FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez will kick off the event with opening remarks starting at 9:00 EST; the webcast will go live shortly before. You can also follow updates via Twitter @FTC, and join the discussion using #FTCauto. A video of the webcast will be available in a few days.
