The Florida Self Storage Association (FSSA) will sponsor and support the Inside Self-Storage Expo in Nashville, Tenn., Oct. 7-10, 2008. The event, which will take place at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center, will include four days of educational seminars, networking opportunities and industry exhibits. Open to self-storage professionals worldwide, it will feature a special focus on the Southeast Region of the United States.
“The FSSA is pleased to be part of this event. We look forward to working with ISS on this and future opportunities that can bring additional educational, networking and other benefits to our members,” said Linnea Appleby, president of PDQ Management Solutions, which manages the FSSA.
Established in 1999, the FSSA has approximately 700 members throughout the state of Florida. Its aim is to ensure the stability and growth of the self-storage industry by providing a forum in which its members may access educational opportunities, exchange information and promote an established, unified voice.
“We are thrilled to join forces with the Florida association in planning and promoting this regional industry event,” said Troy Bix, publisher of Inside Self-Storage magazine, which hosts the expo. “Not only will this arrangement allow us to tailor the educational program to the needs of local operators, but exhibitors can now attend just one tradeshow rather than two separate events. It’s a winning situation for us all.”
The ISS Expo is dedicated to the needs of self-storage owners, operators, managers, investors, developers and suppliers. For information and to register, visit www.insideselfstorage.com/expo.
