Exclusive member event: Getting to market through selective distribution – what’s next?

Exclusive member event: Getting to market through selective distribution – what’s next?

FSPA Managing Director Jane Montgomery explains: “This area of law is currently subject to extensive focus from Brussels and by national competition authorities in the UK and elsewhere. With numerous investigations ongoing and more promised, the event will be a practical and interactive guide to this critical area for sporting goods businesses.

“Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from leading sports lawyers Richard Millington and Simon Barnes. Partners at national law firm Shoosmiths, they have extensive knowledge of international trade law and the sports world.

“Richard has previously worked on the Legal Committee for the World Federation for the Sporting Goods Industry and has held senior legal roles with Nike, Umbro and Iconix Brand Group. Simon leads Shoosmiths’ competition law practice, advising on competition law compliance, investigations and litigation.

“Following the recent publication by the European Union of its sector enquiry into e-commerce, and in light of recent enforcement activity by the EU and national competition authorities, it’s vital that our members get up-to-speed on how these developments could affect their sports or play business.”

Event organiser and BGIA Association Manager, Ciara Morgan, adds: “Following a networking lunch, we’ll take a practical look at the current laws on controlling product distribution, recent cases that illustrate what has and hasn’t been permitted, what the European Commission’s report found and the changes we may see in the future.

“This important event marks the beginning of the extensive support we are offering to our members to ensure they navigate the changes brought about by Brexit successfully.”
