The Federal Trade Commission has announced it is pushing back until June 11, 2019, the date of a workshop aimed at examining consumer protection issues related to the online event ticket marketplace.
The workshop, first announced in October, was originally set to take place in March, but has been delayed until June due to the extended government shutdown. The event will feature opening remarks by Commissioner Rebecca Kelly Slaughter and will bring together a variety of stakeholders, including industry representatives, consumer advocates, trade associations, academics, and government officials, to discuss problematic practices in the online event ticket marketplace.
The workshop, which is free and open to the public, will be held at the Constitution Center, 400 7th St., SW, Washington, DC, and will be webcast live on the FTC’s website. Additional information about the event can be found on the event webpage.
