Attendees Make Connections
A big draw for the expo every year is the opportunity to meet with other industry professionals. The show offers a number of networking events including the Self-Storage Q&A, roundtable discussions and the Buyers & Sellers Meeting. These provide a chance for managers and owners to mingle with their peers, and for investors and developers to get firsthand advice from experts in the field.
This year attendees particularly enjoyed the evening cocktail reception on the show floor. By 5:30 p.m., at the end of a very long day of learning, everyone was ready for some cocktails and hors d'oeuvres! Exhibitors said the booze ... er ... relaxed atmosphere was good for writing business.
Pictured (from left) are Jim Chiswell, president of Chiswell & Associates LLC; Julie Aton, an operator with Aton’s Self Storage in Columbus, Ind.; and Jeffrey Greenberger, a partner with the law firm Katz, Greenberger & Norton LLP. All three are moderators on Self-Storage Talk. Chiswell and Greenberger presented education sessions during the expo, and Greenberger reprised his popular Legal Learning Live! workshop.
