Netherlands Enterprise Agency, RVO

Effective date: 28 May 2022

What changes?

Do you work in the events industry? Many ticket sellers have set limits in their general terms and conditions on the number of tickets that can be sold to 1 person. It is prohibited for traders to circumvent these restrictions by using special computer programmes.

This way traders can no longer buy a lot of tickets at once using such computer programmes, and resell these tickets, often at a higher price, to consumers.

For whom?

  • event organisers
  • traders in tickets for events
  • artists

When?

The 'Implementation law on the Consumer Protection Modernisation Directive' will come into effect on 28 May 2022.
