Presentation events – 3Q of 2015

(Continuous report of 3rd quarter of 2015)

(Prague, December 7, 2015) Despite all legal measures, inspections and repeated warnings against sales presentation events, their organizers still have plenty of participants and space for manipulations and unfair commercial practices, including aggressive commercial practices. During the 3rd quarter, the Czech Trade Inspection Authority inspected tens of presentation sales events as well as contracts and detected flaws in almost 75% of cases. During the same period 42 fines amounting to more than 3.5 million CZK became effective. “Organizers of these events come up with new ways of deceiving consumers and make them participate in a presentation event. Using various tricks they also try to avoid inspections. Despite the fact that our officers pay huge attention to this inspection field, the most effective way to spoil the event together with sellers’ immoral tricks is in the hands of consumers. Don’t let them make you attend such events for any reason and simply don’t participate. This is the best way to protect yourself against the risk of being cheated,” recommends Mojmír Bezecný, the Director General of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority.
