Self-storage call center and marketing firm PhoneSmart will host an “Un-Conference” on the Big Island of Hawaii, June 7-11, and will give a way a free trip to one lucky winner.
The Un-Conference, which will take place at the Mauni Lani Resort, is open to self-storage VIPs who want to discuss important industry topics in a relaxing setting. The event theme is “Unconventional Ideas, Unscripted Sessions, Unbelievable Learning.” The less structured format is intended to provide time for networking, discussion-building and general rejuvenation.
Each day of the Un-Conference will open with breakfast and networking at 8 a.m. and a 45-minute general session at approximately 8:30. From there, attendees will enjoy a variety of speakers, then break into roundtable discussions, and enjoy a group lunch before being released to enjoy the afternoon as they desire. Additional group functions will include a community-service project, a snorkel cruise, tours of cultural sites, and more group meals.
PhoneSmart director Tron Jordheim asks that attendees submit in advance a list of topics in which they are most interested in learning as well as industry experts they’d most like to meet. Attendees will also be given the opportunity to present their own roundtable discussions. Jordheim believes popular topics for this year’s event will include online lead conversion, social media, increasing foot traffic, mobile marketing, add-on sales and others.
PhoneSmart will also hold a drawing to give away one free trip to Hawaii. The winner will receive a free conference package, four free nights at the resort in an ocean-view room, and free coach airfare from the continental United States for two travelers. To enter the drawing, interested parties should visit the PhoneSmart booth at the Inside Self-Storage World Expo in Las Vegas, March 14-16, or any other tradeshow at which the company exhibits before the drawing takes place on April 15. Some conditions and restrictions apply.
PhoneSmart provides contact-center services, sales training, secret shopping and customer-service audits for more than 700 self-storage properties across North America.
