2020 Cancellation FAQs
Why was the decision made to cancel FDIC International 2020 and not reschedule it to the fall?
Delivering FDIC International in its traditional form and to its full commitment (35,000+ Fire Rescue professionals, 85+ hands-on-training evolutions, 300+ conference sessions and 800+ exhibits) is not possible.
We have been putting the health, safety and wellbeing of our team, customers, partners, family and friends above all other priorities and those values remain most important to us. In light of both governmental direction and general public health advisories a face-to-face event is not possible at this time with the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the government issued Public Health Emergency throughout the State of Indiana.

I heard FDIC International was running an event in September 2020, United Fire Conference, where can I find out more information?
During our extensive outreach and conversations with the fire service community there was an overwhelming desire expressed by firefighters to come together in the fall to celebrate the unity of the fire service, learn and support ongoing efforts in serving their communities and continue training. As a result of this we have decided to launch a new event, United Fire Conference, that will take place September 22-24, 2020 at the Indiana Convention Center, Indianapolis.
The absolute priority is to safeguard the health and welfare of all those involved in our events and to provide them with the critical, lifesaving content and training they have requested. If we are not able to hold United Fire Conference in September, then we will still find an alternative way to offer this critical content digitally.
