  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) October 06, 2016 - The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series has scheduled a live webcast entitled: "Antitrust Treatment of Loyalty Discounts in Europe and the U.S.: 2016 Perspective LIVE Webcast." This two-hour event is scheduled on October 13, 2016 @ 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM (ET).

    Event Synopsis:
    For the past years, loyalty discounts have been pervasive in many sectors. A loyalty rebate is "a price reduction given by a supplier in return for a customer committing to purchase a given percentage of its requirements from that supplier." Considering the anti- and pro-competitive aspects, loyalty discounts may significantly impact consumers and have lasting antitrust implications. Thus, rigid scrutiny of these rebates is necessary to effectively manage competition concerns and therefore, avoid possible pitfalls and risks.

They will provide an in-depth discussion of Antitrust Treatment of Loyalty Discounts in Europe and in the U.S. Speakers will also offer best practices in minimizing risks and maximizing loyalty discount benefits while ensuring compliance with antitrust laws.

    Key issues that will be covered in this course are:
    Loyalty Discounts in EU and U.S. - A Overview
    Loyalty Rebates and US Antitrust Law
    Analysis of Loyalty Discounts
    Possible Antitrust Implications
