What to expect at FDIC – Part 2


FDIC International offers thousands of Fire & Rescue professionals from around the world. Our attendees visit the exhibition to get a first-hand look at the latest products, technologies and services on the market. FDIC International is a one of kind experience, bringing together members of the fire service from around the world to exchange information, network, meet up with old friends and meet new ones. 


Taking place again at FDIC is the highly anticipated MATCH! Program, back for another year.   

The FREE MATCH! program at FDIC will help you make the most efficient use of your time by pre-scheduling one-to-one meetings with exhibitors who fit your current sourcing needs. Offering you an efficient and personalised experience before and during the event by empowering you to choose who you want to meet. 

MATCH! is available to officers (or committee members) who are decision-makers and actively sourcing products or services for their department.  

Meetings are pre-scheduled and mutually agreed upon, which allows both parties to come prepared for a productive business conversation while saving precious time at the event. 

Women in Fire Conference  

The Women in Fire Conference will begin with an Opening Ceremony, followed by a lineup of educational classes that provide training, support, and advocacy for women in the fire service. 

The Women in Fire conference will take place on the Monday of the event. With so many interesting talks to attend, we at Fire Buyer have hand-picked some of the most exciting.

Exhibitor floor  

FDIC International is the global platform to showcase products and services, boost ROI through sponsorship opportunities, and gain access to thousands of buyers on the show floor and during special events and programs.
