Arizona Self Storage Association to Host 2012 Conference and Tradeshow, May 7-9


The Arizona Self Storage Association (AZSSA) will host its 14th annual conference and tradeshow, May 7-9, at the Phoenix Marriott Mesa, in Mesa, Ariz. This year’s conference theme is “Back to Basics,” focusing on business fundamentals for self-storage owners, operators and managers. Topics to be covered will include:

  • The 3- to 5-mile micro-market surrounding facilities
  • Customer service and superior maintenance as the first line of marketing
  • Attention to bottom-line challenges
  • Marketing investments that lead to closed leases, merchandise sales and other revenue-growth tactics

Self-storage managers can also sharpen their sales and marketing skills at an interactive workshop with Brad North, president of Advantage Consulting & Management. While managers are attending the workshop, facility owners can attend sessions on legal issues, financing and a 2011 market survey.

In addition to seminars and product and service exhibits, this year’s AZSSA conference will feature more than a dozen roundtable discussions as well as a virtual, interactive tour of several self-storage facilities nationwide. More information can be found at

Founded in 1996, the AZSSA was created to strengthen the self-storage industry in Arizona, promote professional standards and quality, and present a unified voice on issues affecting the local industry. Today the association has more than 500 facility and vendor members.
