    Question Fdic??

    A buddy and me are thinking of going to FDIC-first time. We just want to go to the vendor exhibits-no classes, etc. I am asking if there is a fee to just go to the exhibit hall and see all the vendors? Also are there any other interesting exhibits/demos down there that are free to see/do?

    Default nothing is free

    As for your first question, FDIC 1-day pass will run you 30.00 if you register before I think Apr 1st. All the exhibits are housed inside the RCA Dome and Convention center. I have gone down the last three years and let me tell you I have enjoyed every minute. It is worth every penny. Make sure to have a full day to spend in there.

    Hope this helps...

    It is the firefighter's Mecca.

    Be prepared to pay to park, food in the hall isn't cheap, etc. but again - it's worth it.

    To really answer your question - No, Johnny Gage and Roy Desoto won't be there.

    Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

    "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.


    Comments made are my own. They do not represent the official position or opinion of the Fire Department or the City for which I am employed. In fact, they are normally exactly the opposite.

    Gee Robert LOL !!!! Thought you might be looking for Steve McQueen in Towering Inferno or something like that

    I have been there for the past 11 yrs... Like it was earlier said, it is the mecca of things. If it is in the fire service and worth anything, it will be at FDIC

    Parking in the parking garages are the best bet. Out of the weather.

    Oh yeah, stay away from the topless bars unless you want to get taken. :-)

    Screw the topless bars. Watch out for Pacers players, they'll shoot you.
