The 2020 Inside Self-Storage World Expo will be taking place at The Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas this summer, July 21-24, and approximately 200 industry suppliers are on board to exhibit. This event was originally scheduled to take place in April but was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, leaving our exhibitors simply itching to reveal what they’ve got in store for show attendees! Take a gander at the products and services they’ll be unveiling this year, the things you can sample or demo at their booths, and the specials, discounts and giveaways on offer. More companies will be added regularly, so check back often!

What new products or services will you be unveiling at this year’s event?
Boxwell (Booth 831): Our relocatable storage units are constantly being updated and improved, so prospective buyers and repeat customers should visit our booth to see the latest in upgrades and technology.
Easy Storage Solutions (Booth 919): We have two new services we’re excited to unveil at the ISS World Expo this year. The first is our automated pay-by-phone service, which is an IVR (interactive voice response) system. With it, customers can pay their bills by phone 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The tenant’s account is authenticated by the phone number in the facility management software, and the software is instantly updated when payments are made.
Our second new offering is our tenant-protection service, which gives self-storage operators and tenants peace of mind. It’s a reliable, affordable way for tenants to store their goods and protect them against potential damage. Our protection plans have advantages such as no deductible, protection of commercial and personal goods, and shared earnings with the facility operator.
Security Source (Booth 1400): We’ll be unveiling our Chekt video-alarm verification solution.
Store Space Self Storage (Booth 1002): We’re pleased to introduce Storage360° in conjunction with our solid third-party management platform. Our proprietary platform offers total technology that consolidates all vital features and data in real time for self-storage success. Storage360° was designed for facility operators by facility operators, so the functionality and the science behind it are simply superior.
What can attendees try, see or sample at your booth this year?
Boxwell (Booth 831): Boxwell units create flexible, movable buildings that increase rentable space and maximize profit at an existing storage facility. Attendees should stop by our booth and step inside our 8-by-16 demo unit to get a feel for the product. Our units are highly customizable at no extra cost. Attendees can see different options and features while discussing how to best suit their site's needs with a company representative.
Easy Storage Solutions (Booth 919): Attendees will be able to try our self-storage management software. They can see what our free website template looks like, how their potential customers can rent self-storage units online, and what the back end of our software looks like for staff.
We also offer other integrated services to help attendees simplify and better manage a self-storage business including call answering, SEO and digital marketing, cloud access control, tenant-protection plans and accounting. Attendees can learn more about these at our booth. We’re excited to talk to them about how we can simplify their operation!
Pacific Southwest Realty Services (Booth 423): Attendees can learn about various forms of self-storage financing we offer, including life-company financing.
