Last week's Inside Self-Storage Expo at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas was the largest trade event in the industry's history, and rave reviews have poured in from attendees and exhibitors alike. The four-day event was enjoyed by more than 4,500 storage professionals participating in concurrent seminars, roundtable discussions, the Prime-Time Open Forum, Security & Software Summit, "Is It Legal?" Q&A, vendor presentations, Buyers & Sellers Meeting, Developers' Seminar, Management Workshop, ISS Scholarship Presentation and more.
Here's what some people had to say:
"As someone who is about to become a new storage owner, I was amazed and awed by the Vegas Expo. Having been in the apartment business for over 20 years, storage is a natural progression for me. I was very pleased with the enthusiasm of my new peers and professionalism of the ISS staff and vendors! I wanted to thank you for the awesome amount and thoroughness of the education program, and for putting together what I kept hearing all week was the best event in the storage industry. Congratulations to you and the ISS team! I look forward to my next ISS Expo!" (Scott Gonyeo, Rochester, N.Y.)
Just a note to say we had another fantastic showing at our booth this year. We obtain more quality leads from your ISS Las Vegas tradeshows than any other tradeshow we have ever attended in our 23 years in business. Many thanks again for a grand show. (Randy Vander Hill, AJAY Storage Lifts)
Great job, great expo, great people, effort and results! (RK Kliebenstein, Coast-To-Coast Storage)
