Have you heard? The Self-Storage Association is hosting the Spring Conference and Trade Show in Philadelphia from April 22-24, at the Marriott Downtown. This is the only national self storage conference on the east coast this year, and the place to be for anyone in the industry. From education from the experts to networking with self storage industry leaders, there is something for everyone at this top notch event.
An impressive list of guest speakers will be in attendance. The keynote speaker at this year’s conference is David L. Rogers, the Chief Executive Officer of Sovran Self Storage, which operates under the household name “Uncle Bob’s Self Storage”. Hear how David started with one self-storage facility in 1985 and grew Sovran into a $2.4 billion enterprise, with storage facilities in 25 states. Also speaking at the show will be D. Carlos Kaslow, a California attorney that serves as the General Counsel for the Self Storage Association, along with Scott I. Zucker, who specializes in business and real estate litigation, representing self storage owners and managers on a variety of issues, as well as offering his services on a consulting basis for advice on foreclosures and site liability.
If you are looking to take a class on the importance of social media in your marketing strategy, you may want to sign up for the Social Media Masterclass. This event will be held on Monday and will be led by David Meerman Scott, a marketing strategist that specializes in social media and leadership.
In between speakers, spend some time in the Exhibit Hall, as there will be suppliers present from all aspects of the industry.
