Inside Self-Storage has signed on as the platinum sponsor for The Self Storage Summit, a new online conference providing free education to industry professionals. Taking place Nov. 19-21, the event will include dozens of presentations from experts on a wide range of topics. It’s being hosted and produced by Jim Ross, owner of Self Storage Domination Management and host of “The Self Storage Show” podcast. Registration is available at www.insideselfstorage.com/summit and requires only an e-mail address.
To date, 30 speakers have agreed to participate. They include industry consultants, owners, managers and suppliers. A full roster and agenda are available on the event website.
Each morning of the live event, registered attendees will receive an e-mail containing links to that day's sessions, which will be available for free for 24 hours. For unlimited access and bonus material, attendees have the option to purchase an All-Access Pass for $197. Perks of the upgrade include a printable PDF workbook, downloadable MP3s, access to a private Facebook group and weekly video conferencing.
“My goal is for every attendee to come away having learned something new and, more important, have action items they can implement for immediate positive impact on their business,” Ross said. “At the conclusion of the event, I want every single attendee to say to themselves, ‘That was amazing.’ I want this to be fun and educational. Most important, I want them to have a better self-storage business because of the value that was delivered to them.”
Ross began his career in the self-storage industry more than 20 years ago as a facility manager. He later advanced to regional manager, overseeing properties in several states. He operated his own self-storage auction company for a time before launching 3 Mile Domination with co-founder Matthew Van Horn. The business partners co-authored the book “Self-Storage Domination.”
Launched in 2018, “The Self Storage Show” offers more than 50 episodes, including interviews with facility managers, consultants, real estate brokers, owners and others. A free streaming app is available in the Apple App Store and Android Market.
For more than 28 years, ISS has provided informational resources for the self-storage industry. Its educational offerings include ISS magazine, the annual ISS World Expo, an extensive website, the ISS Store, and Self-Storage Talk, the industry’s largest online community.
