Can non-FDIC International customers participate?

Definitely! Review package options for current, past and future FDIC exhibitors.

How will I get leads?

Through your exhibitor dashboard, you’ll view ‘leads’ by retailers who showed interested in your products, retailers who viewed your showroom and those who have requested a meeting with you or your representatives. The package options outline the number leads you’ll receive.

What if I don’t have videos produced or images ready for my new line?

It’s easy to shoot photos and videos from your mobile device and the FDIC team is putting together a full suite of how-to guides including best practices and tips for shooting photos and videos on your own non-professional devices.

Will this live on after COVID-19 and events resume?

Yes! The intent of the FDIC Product Network is to provide a resource during the unprecedented time but we plan to launch future events beyond this program and the video content will live on-demand.
