Follow the Inside Self-Storage World Expo on Self-Storage Talk, Twitter
This week, self-storage industry pros will either be attending the Inside Self-Storage World Expo in New Orleans, one the of industry's biggest events running Wednesday through Friday, or unfortunately won't be able to make it. The good news for those in either camp is you can follow the events and discuss them in two different places.
First, the official home for ongoing ISS Expo discussion is Self-Storage Talk, the online forum of Inside Self-Storage. All show-related discussion appears in the New Orleans show forum. If you're attending the show and have a few minutes on your laptop or mobile device, feel free to post questions and feedback in this forum. Maybe the last speaker you heard was incredibly informative and you would like to dish out some praise. Perhaps you’d like to arrange a meet-up for lunch or dinner with someone you just met, but you don't have another way to contact them. This forum can be incredibly helpful for during-the-show networking.
If you're not in New Orleans, reading forum threads will keep you in touch with your industry mates who are there, soaking in the information and striking new partnerships and friendships. Though it's no substitute for being there, you at least have a way to connect with others online through the forum. To participate in Self-Storage Talk, you must be a registered user. If you're not registered, you can do so quickly by going here.
For Twitter users, make sure you give some "tweet love" to the expo for the next week. Anytime you post an expo-related tweet, we invite you to include the hashtag #ISSNOLA so that the topic is easily searchable.
One last note: If you'll be in New Orleans, make sure to swing by the Self-Storage Talk booth in the Exhibit Hall. The booth will be adjacent to Inside-Self Storage. Come get your forum questions answered, introduce industry colleagues to this great resource, or just say "hello." I love meeting fellow SSTers in person.
Between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, the cocktail reception at the Exhibit Hall would be a great time to congregate around the SST booth to socialize, meet or catch up with other members. I can't wait for New Orleans, and I hope you're as excited as I am.
