Today’s self-storage managers grapple with tough challenges including falling occupancy, rate stagnation, lien sales and problem tenants. New managers and veterans will get insight and useful tools to help them cope and succeed at the Inside Self-Storage World Expo, March 14-16, at the Paris Hotel & Resort in Las Vegas. The show includes educational seminars, workshops and networking opportunities specifically for managers and operators who work in the self-storage trenches.
The “Day-to-Day Operation & Facility Management Track” of seminars features topics such as rate discounting and increases, updating rental agreements, lien sales, facility curb appeal, staff evaluation and training, and much more. Attendees can also choose to attend the Management Workshop, taught by Mel Holsinger, president and CEO of Professional Self Storage Management LLC. The four-hour practicum delves deep into a manager’s daily responsibilities, covering issues from marketing to maintenance and everything in-between.
Several networking opportunities, included for free with all registration packages, provide additional education and peer-to-peer guidance. During the interactive Self-Storage Q&A, to be held on March 14, attendees can ask candid questions and get honest answers from industry experts and colleagues. Several prizes will be given away to participants during this lively event. The Roundtable Discussions that follow will cover a wide array of topics including cost-saving strategies, low-cost marketing ideas, green solutions, website do’s and don’ts, and more.
