The Inside Self-Storage World Expo scheduled to take place this fall in Washington, D.C., has changed its dates to Oct. 5-8, 2009. Originally set for Nov. 3-6, the event will still be hosted at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center.
According to show planners, the decision to change the dates of the self-storage conference and tradeshow was threefold. “First, we wanted to help attendees and exhibitors avoid conflicts with other industry events taking place during that time of year,” said Tradeshow Director Dana Hicks. “We also wanted to move the show further away from the Thanksgiving holiday, and we thought participants would appreciate being in D.C. earlier in the year when it isn’t quite so cold.”
The ISS Expo is designed to meet the educational needs of self-storage owners, managers, investors, developers and suppliers. It will comprise four days of seminars, add-on intensive workshops, networking events, and product and service exhibits. Topics to be addressed include facility marketing and promotion, legal issues, insurance, finance and lending requirements, green building, rental-rate management, development guidelines and more.
