Stor-Age Property REIT Ltd., which operates 37 self-storage facilities in South Africa, exhibited this week at 2016 Decorex Joburg, a décor, design and lifestyle expo at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand, South Africa. The event, Aug. 5-9, featured ideas and inspiration for exterior and interior spaces. The Stor-Age booth included a custom-built, 10-by-10 storage unit similar to those found at its facilities. It was the first time a self-storage company exhibited at the show, according to the Stor-Age blog.
During the expo, Stor-Age held daily drawings for prizes it had on display, including a gas grill, patio heater, refrigerator and washing machine. Attendees also received a voucher for a rental discount at the company’s facilities.
The theme for this year’s Decorex was “Take it Home, Make it Home.” The event featured more than 700 exhibitors, including decorators and designers, furniture suppliers, kitchen manufacturers, and paint and décor specialists. More than 50,000 people were expected to attend, the blog stated.
In November, Stor-Age became South Africa’s first self-storage real estate investment trust listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange. Headquartered in Cape Town, it operates self-storage facilities in six South African cities. Established in 2006 by the Lucas family, it’s the operator appointed by Stor-Age Property Fund Managers Pty. Ltd. to manage and market the property portfolio owned by Stor-Age Property Holdings Pty. Ltd.
