FDIC’s MATCH! VIP Program is a highly interactive meeting format that brings together decision makers and suppliers in order to create a PRODUCTIVE and COLLABORATIVE network during the event.
"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
As a MATCH! VIP you are introduced to a customized meeting experience, that makes the most efficient use of your time, connecting you with vendors who offer the products and services you need to purchase.
FDIC MATCH! VIP Attendees will include authorized buyers (or recommenders) made up of high ranking department officers, committee members and chairs with purchasing authority and power who have demonstrated an immediacy of purchase.
“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
"This is a no brainer! To be able to meet all those vendors in a few hours and have a one on one conversation where I could ask all the questions I needed to was amazing."
Donald Ladd, Assistant Chief
LaPorte Fire Department, TX
“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
