FDIC International MATCH!



Personalized Matchmaking to Help You Get Business Done 
Simply tell us what product or service you’re looking for and our MATCH! software provides a list of participating exhibitors who will meet your needs. You’ll then be able to select who you want to meet with. 

Dedicated Time to Meet With Exhibitors Before the Exhibit Hall Opens 
Preschedule 1X1 meetings with exhibitors in our VIP Lounge 4 hours before the exhibit hall opens to the public — this gives you more time to explore the show floor during the event. 

Complimentary Service 
The MATCH! Program is a complimentary service offered to fire officers who are participating in selecting products and services for their departments. 

  • This MATCH! program is by far the most amazing and personable program that FDIC has ever done. It makes it easier to speak with the reps you want to meet with
    Carl Brown, Asst. Chief
    Union TWP. Fire Department, IN
  • It was an incredible experience. We enjoyed meeting with vendors we weren’t familiar with and allowed us to get the information we needed.
    Kaylan Driskell, Fire Chief
    Magnolia Springs VFD
  • The MATCH! program rocks. Firefighters are no nonsense and like to get things done. This program allows for straightforward, one on one meetings with the vendors you need. MATCH! was able to provide that and treated us like VIPs. Well worth it.
    Wayne Morris, Captain
    Eugene Springfield Fire, OR
  • If you’re looking for something specific, MATCH! is the best place to do it. Being able to sit down with a vendor and have a conversation, uninterrupted, is invaluable.
    Anthony Segars, Fire Chief
    Belmont Fire Dept, SC
  • An excellent opportunity to sit down with vendors and describe your specific needs to see if they can meet them. It was outstanding!
    Brian McNevin, Fire Marshal
    Southern Stone County FPD, MO
  • This is my second FDIC and this one is much better than last year. The MATCH! VIP Lounge made this much more enjoyable.
    Ed Clancy, Captain
  • MATCH! is a very comfortable, personalized and interactive format. You can get information, ask questions and get immediate answers.
    Burke Stiles, Captain
    City of Leduc Fire Services, AB
