FTC Targets Promoters

Over the past five years, The Fair Trading Commission (FTC) received a number of complaints which charged that advertisements related to various staged events were misleading in nature. The complaints included among others: failure of scheduled artistes to perform, failure of events to start at the scheduled times, ticket price being higher than that advertised and failure to notify of changes in venue or any other material change related to the relevant events.

It was becoming increasingly obvious that a trend toward anti-competitive conduct had developed among persons or enterprises in the sector.
