The Texas Self Storage Association (TSSA) has released details on its fall conference, Oct. 9-11, in The Woodlands, Texas. Designed for self-storage developers, managers and owners, the annual event—themed “Big Ideas in Storage” for 2016—will take place at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel & Convention Center.
The conference will offer four educational tracks of seminars: development and growth, management and operations, marketing and technology, and strategy and enterprise. This year’s keynote speaker is Steve Vrooman, a professor of communication studies at Texas Lutheran University. His presentation, “By the Time They Need Us, They Already Know Us: A New Approach to Social Media for the Self-Storage Industry,” will focus on how operators can build a productive social media strategy.
The event will also include networking “breaks” to allow attendees to meet with peers, as well as a new-member and first-time attendee orientation. A Sunday Social will be held at The Goose’s Acre, 3-5 p.m., on Oct. 9. Other activities include a membership luncheon, product and service exhibits, a cocktail reception, roundtable discussions, live and silent auctions, and a charity poker tournament to benefit the Shriners Hospitals for Children in Galveston, Texas.
Early-bird discounts are available until Aug. 31. Additional show details can be found on the TSSA website.
Established in 1986, the TSSA is a nonprofit trade association dedicated to enhancing the quality of self-storage in Texas. It provides industry education, research and discussion.
