The Self Storage Association of the United Kingdom (SSA-UK) will host a networking event on May 10 at the Chester Racecourse horseracing track in Chester, England. “Day at Chester Races” will be held in conjunction with Ladies Day, which is part of the venue’s Boodles May Festival, according to an e-mail sent to SSA-UK members.
The event offers attendees exclusive use of the trackside marquee positioned on the last furlong of the course. The area is equipped with race guides and betting facilities as well as television monitors to follow the races. In addition to networking possibilities and the races, attendees will have access to drinks throughout the day, a hot-plated lunch, and afternoon tea and snacks, the e-mail stated.
“Last year was a huge success—a beautiful day, lots of food and drink, and even a few big winners,” SSA-UK officials said.
The Chester Racecourse is the oldest horseracing track still in use in England. Nearly 300,000 people attended last year’s races, according to the e-mail. Ladies Day is described as “an intoxicating mix of competitive handicaps and top-class group races, contrasting with the vibrancy of an enthusiastic stylish crowd—an amalgam only Chester can deliver.”
The association event will be held in conjunction with major sponsor Active Supply and Design Ltd., a self-storage builder. Other sponsors include PTI Security Systems, insurance broker Reason Global Ltd., and portable-storage providers Mr. Box Ltd. and Willbox Ltd.
The SSA-UK is the trade association for the self-storage industry in the United Kingdom. Its mission is to support member operators and vendors, promote best business practices, and raise public awareness.
