Clarion UX Fire & Rescue Group Launches New Buyer Program

Clarion UX Fire & Rescue Group Launches New Buyer Program

Clarion UX Fire & Rescue Group, formerly PennWell Corporation, is introducing a new key buyer program at FDIC International (April 8-13, 2019). The key buyer program called “MATCH!” connects decision making fire and rescue service personnel with exhibitors who provide products and services that address the immediate needs of their department and the communities they protect.

Qualified attending participants for FDIC International’s MATCH! Programs will include authorized buyers made up of high-ranking fire officers, committee members, and chairs with purchasing authority and power who have demonstrated an immediacy of purchase.  

In exchange for participating in the MATCH! program, these key buyers will receive an elevated attending package with exclusive perks, privileges and services. This will include exclusive access to innovative matchmaking technology and a personal Program Manager, Chris Marinaro, who will assist them with securing pre-arranged meetings with exhibiting companies based on mutually matched interests. 

“The MATCH! program is a best practice that we’ve adapted from other Clarion UX events to address the common concerns we hear from our customers including; not enough time to explore the show floor and trouble finding new vendors,” said Eric Schlett, Senior Vice President of Clarion UX Fire & Rescue Group.

This personalized approach gives key decision making attendees full control of their schedule and a more efficient way of doing business, assisting them with securing meaningful meetings and generating awareness of new products and suppliers they may not have previously been aware of.

 “These programs are just a start to our team’s strategic commitment and significant investment in programs that continue to deliver ROI and add value for our customers at both EMS Today and FDIC International,” Schlett said.
