Move over Pokémon … It’s time for Expómon! Get ready to hit the hottest Showstop in town: The Inside Self-Storage World Expo, April 10-13, at the Paris Hotel & Resort in Las Vegas. Now in its 26th year, this event is where you’ll capture all the best knowledge and resources in the business. There’s no need to wander the globe—you’ll find everything you need under a single roof.
The ISS Expo is the ultimate training ground for new and veteran storage professionals. The first step in your schooling is to get the lay of the land. This year’s show features 45 seminars and seven workshops covering a full range of subjects, from development to operation, finance to marketing. It also includes more new topics and speakers than ever before.
The concurrent education program is divided into seven specialized tracks: building, finance, investing, management, marketing, ownership and technology. Presentations will address a full range of industry-relevant material, with options for everyone. Whether you’re an owner, manager or investor, green or experienced, you’ll find seminars to expand your knowledge base and enrich your skill set.
If you hail from outside the United States or are interested in exploring business opportunities in other lands, don’t miss the International Program on April 12. Open to all registered attendees, this offering includes seminars, roundtables and a panel discussion with expert representatives from storage companies across the globe.
Finally, gain deep-dive insight to essential aspects of the business through our intensive workshop experiences. Returning to the lineup this year are the Development Workshop, Legal Workshops (two options), Management Workshop and Owner/Operator Executive Workshop. We’ve brought back the Marketing Workshop with a new presenter and educational focus, and we’ve added an all new Sales-Skills Workshop, which will make facility managers experts at converting leads and generating more revenue.
No ISS Expo experience would be complete without networking opportunities. Joining forces with like-minded storage professionals can lead to fresh ideas, business ventures and even partnerships.
If this is your first ISS Expo, grab a seat at the new-attendee welcome and orientation, 8 a.m., on April 11. Presented by two respected industry veterans, Jim Chiswell and Mel Holsinger, this session will provide an overview of the show’s events and must-see features. Our hosts will help you map out your agenda and optimize your show experience.
After spending a full day exploring our top-notch seminar-track program, rejoin Jim and Mel at 3 p.m. for one of our most popular happenings: the Self-Storage Q&A. Get your burning questions answered or offer expertise during this interactive event. It’s also your chance to win great prizes! Immediately after, you’ll get access to the exhibit hall and mingle with nearly 200 product and service suppliers during the evening cocktail reception.
On April 12, take advantage of our Roundtable Discussions, a one-hour survey of multiple industry topics in a more interactive, intimate setting than our education seminars. Sit down with experts and get the straight scoop on issues of automation, financing, solar energy and much more.
If you’re interested in acquisitions or looking to sell a property, don’t miss the afternoon Buyers & Sellers Meeting in the expo hall. Organized by region, this event will help you connect with the right professionals to make your real estate dreams come true.
Competition in the storage industry is fierce, and it’s going to get tougher as new sites open their doors. Operators will soon find themselves fighting for every customer dollar. Now’s the time to become battle-ready by attending the biggest and best show of the year. Capture the knowledge you need, explore new revenue streams, and team up with those who can help you succeed.
