Merge Left

A guest blog spot by ISS Associate Editor Elaine Foxwell Elaine with her equine friend, Slayer. I creep onto the self-storage Information Superhighway in my Blogmobile for the first time. The infotraffic is flying by so fast it feels more like I’m on the Information Autobahn. I cautiously accelerate in the right lane, summoning up the courage to increase my virtual velocity and merge left. I ...

Where do U go, U-Store-It?

The show's over, and it's back to business as usual. I've spent the past couple of days reacquainting myself with self-storage in the news. I found the anticipated palette of spectacles including arson, robberies and vandalism ... But what the heck is going on at U-Store-It? Several articles in last week's The Plain Dealer and an editorial in The Motley Fool tell how a dispute within the ...

So I mispredicted ...

I anticipated having time during Friday's expo-hall hours to post more show photos and updates to the blog. But the floor was still buzzing, we were shooting all kinds of video, and there simply wasn't an opportunity to hole up with the laptop. (I'd hate to be an introvert at one of these high-impact expos—the perpetual activity would badger the psyche.) The show's last day was non-stop. Some ...

Tucked away at a table in the corner of the booth, with attendees peering over, wondering what the heck I'm doing. Guess a chick tap-tap-tapping away on a laptop with a mischevious look on her face must be all too intriguing. So much has gone on since the ...

Bright Lights, Big City ... Here We Come

Today I head out. After months of planning and prepping, the event is here and now: the Inside Self-Storage Las Vegas Expo. It's the largest industry event of the year—even as I type, thousands of your colleagues are on their way to the relentless city where dreams are dashed and realized depending on the spiciness of the morning's Bloody Mary. I've lost track of how many times I've been to ...

'You Can Sleep When You're Dead' He Says

A couple of weeks ago, we ran a press release about a Scottish entrepreneur, Alister Jack, who had just sold two self-storage businessnes for about £54 million. You think the guy would now choose to cuddle up in a Carribbean utopia somewhere and live out his days in peaceful bliss. Not so. In an interview with The Scotsman, Jack revealed that it's back to business as usual—he plans to start ...

Ready to Roll!

Two weeks from now, we'll be in the midst of conducting the industry's largest conference and tradeshow in history. Our competitors may be loathe to admit it, but the Inside Self-Storage Las Vegas Expo has come to be known by many as the event of the year for this business, and for good reason. Don't worry, I'm not about to spout off about all the features of this show, why you should attend, so ...
