Abuse of dominant position in trade show management

Brussels court of appeal judgment of 10 November 2005 (21 pages in French, PDF) finding that a rule of a motor trade show organised by the trade body FEBIAC that prevented a participant from taking part in any other show for relevant products in Belgium in the preceding six months was an abuse of a dominant position by the trade show organiser FEBIAC unless permission to appear in another show was given in cases where this would have no material impact on the FEBIAC show.
