Comparative advertising can improve sales, but how do you address false claims or challenges made by your competitors? Claims support is a critical business focus for many companies in categories with aggressive competitors. There is a scientific and legal foundation necessary to support advertising claims.

The purpose of this 3-day course is to raise awareness of issues in testing product performance and evaluating advertising to provide solid evidentiary support needed in the event of a claims dispute.

The course speakers have decades of experience as instructors, scientific experts, jurors, and litigators in addressing claims with significant survey and product testing components.  National Advertising Division and litigated cases will be used to examine and reinforce the information discussed. (Approximately 12 CLE credits and 15CH for Certified Food Scientists can be claimed for attendance of this course.)
