The Oct. 4-6 event at the Greater Tacoma, Wash., Convention & Trade Center is the industry’s leading conference, tradeshow and education event for self storage facility owners, managers, developers, investors and suppliers.
By taking advantage of the early-bird registration, attendees can save $200 on the standard Education Package, $245 on the Premium Package, which includes the Education Package plus a choice of two workshops, as well as save $150 on individual add-on workshops. The standard Education Package includes access to all seminars, the exhibit hall, and networking events including the popular Self-Storage Q&A, cocktail reception and Buyers & Sellers Meeting. Self-storage owners, managers, developers and investors will have access to five comprehensive education tracks covering the industry’s hottest topics including online marketing, collections and lien sales, manager incentives, facility design, and much more. The expo’s four add-on workshops delve deeper into the critical areas of online marketing, legal issues, development and site operation. The exhibit hall will feature more than 50 of the self storage industry’s top suppliers representing a highly diverse range of products and services.
The expo features an extensive program tailored for the storage-industry professional.

With a focus on tools for operational growth, including industry-specific training and technology, the ISS Expo is an ideal place to learn about the storage business, whether you work behind the counter or behind the scenes. A special bonus education track will be dedicated to self-storage development and operation in Canada. The event includes two tracks tailored to specialized audiences.
