PARTICIPATE IN FDIC'S MATCH! PROGRAM
FDIC’s MATCH! Program is a customized meeting experience designed to provide highly efficient connections for
real business interactions. It connects exhibitors with hand selected, vetted, decision makers from the fire and rescue service who provide products and services that address the immediate needs of their department and the communities they protect.
Prescheduled 1X1 meetings – exhibitor knows who you are prior to meeting.
Guaranteed 20-minute meeting time with no outside interruptions.
Opportunity to ask questions and discuss personal needs so you can make informed decisions.
- MATCH! software suggests companies with products and services that match your identified needs.
- Schedule 1X1 meetings when it’s most convenient for you.
- Get your business done ahead of time so you have more time to explore the show floor.
- Personal program manager will assist you along the way and help to secure your meetings.
- Access to the VIP Lounge during the entire show – with free Wi-Fi, power to recharge, and refreshments throughout the day.
- Virtual meetings are available if you are unable to make it onsite, or if you need a follow up meeting for your team back home.
Highest Return On Your Time!
- MATCH! is all about efficiency and convenience for BOTH attendees and exhibitors, so participants must be selecting or researching products or services to buy within the next two years.
- MATCH! VIPs are decision makers, authorized buyers or recommenders made up of high-ranking department officers, committee members and chairs.
Get VIP Access, Extra Perks, and More!
- As an FDIC MATCH! VIP, you will complete a sourcing profile that identifies your current product or service needs.
- Our matchmaking software will work to organically generate vendor recommendations based on the specifications you provided.
- You will then decide if you would like to take a meeting with vendor suggestions provided - the decision to meet is controlled by you.
- You agree to complete at least five, 20-minute meetings through MATCH!
- If you cannot attend in person, you can still take advantage of this opportunity virtually.
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
It was an incredible experience. We enjoyed meeting with vendors we weren’t familiar with and allowed us to get the information we needed.
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.
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.
An excellent opportunity to sit down with vendors and describe your specific needs to see if they can meet them. It was outstanding!
This is my second FDIC and this one is much better than last year. The MATCH! VIP Lounge made this much more enjoyable.
MATCH! is a very comfortable, personalized and interactive format. You can get information, ask questions and get immediate answers.
