Introducing FDIC MATCH!

FDIC International - FDIC MATCH! Program

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. 

Advantages and Benefits of Being a FDIC MATCH! VIP

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. 


  • One-on-one meetings to ask questions and make informed decisions
  • 20 minutes of undivided attention from the vendors – no competing for their attention
  • Discuss your personalized needs with vendors and mutually determine how they can be addressed in product development


  • Meetings are scheduled and planned ahead of time to maximize your FDIC experience
  • You tell us what you’re looking to purchase and our system organically compiles a list of participating companies whose product/service lines match those needs
  • All meetings conveniently take place in the MATCH! VIP lounge so you can schedule them in time blocks that make the most sense for you
  • Take care of your most pressing needs through MATCH! meetings and have time to explore the show floor for even more


  • A personal Program Manager will assist with securing your one-on-one meetings and offer assistance with any registration questions
  • Access to the VIP Lounge during the entire show giving you a place to sit, relax and recharge with free Wi-Fi, power and refreshments throughout the day
  • Enjoy a special attending package with exclusive perks including: One YEAR FREE online membership with (5) logins for the Fire Engineering Books & Videos Streaming Video Library and a 50% discount on a one time purchase at Fire Engineering Books & Videos Booth (#6094) at show site

How Does the MATCH! Program Work?

  • FDIC MATCH! VIP Attendees are asked to complete a sourcing profile
  • Our matchmaking system then works to organically generate vendor recommendations based on their specified product or service offerings
  • VIPs will then decide if they would like to request a meeting with the vendor – the decision to meet is controlled by the attendee
  • VIPs agree to complete five, 20 minute meetings during their time at the event
