ISS Buyer’s Guide: A Reference You’ll Use Year-Round

By Amy Campbell Comments

A few months ago, I came across an old address book. I found it mixed in with layers of folders in a drawer in my filing cabinet. It was at least a decade old, with some torn pages and very outdated information. I thumbed through it quickly, considered the merits of keeping it, then tossed it into the recycle bin. It was no longer a reference I could even use.

This week, the Inside Self-Storage brings you a reference you can use year-round: the 2011 Buyer’s Guide. The easy-to-use directory contains hundreds of self-storage product and service suppliers. In the guide, you’ll find detailed information about domestic and international industry associations, builders, management companies, security providers, software companies and much more. All of these companies are also listed on our website and in greater detail with addresses and fax numbers. Just choose “Buyer’s Guide” under the topics menu.

If we missed your company, don’t worry, we can still add you to the online guide. Simply complete the online form on the buyer’s guide pages. We update the online version throughout the year.

If you’re interested in meeting with the companies listed in the ISS Buyer’s Guide, be sure to join us Oct. 4-6 for the Inside Self-Storage World Expo in Tacoma, Wash. The exhibitor hall will include dozens of vendors offering a variety of products and services to meet all your development and operational needs. You can view the list of vendors here. Plus, don’t miss the expo’s many networking opportunities. You can find complete show information and register here.

For more insight into speaker topics, or if you’d like to make plans to meet up with other attendees, check out the dedicated expo thread on Self-Storage Talk. Registered users are also sharing information on travel deals they’ve discovered and even which events they plan to attend. We hope to see you there.
