Whether you’re considering purchasing a self-storage business or you’re already an owner, investing in attending a convention is an important annual priority. Conventions provide many opportunities to business owners.

Three important reasons to attend a convention are to:

  1. Sharpen your skills as a business owner and/or manager.
  2. Connect/network with other business owners and influencers in the self-storage market.
  3. Learn about what’s new.

It’s easy to think you need to always be working on your business. While there’s nothing wrong with hard work, learning and sharpening your skills is equally important. It helps you assess what is working and deal with what isn’t. Sometimes it’s hard to see this without stepping back to learn from someone else. A convention is a great way to do that.

In today’s world of influencers, they exist in every single industry. Connecting with other business owners and self-storage influencers in person is a great way to grow your business. You may even have knowledge and skills to share. You can learn how to do that at a convention.

Every industry is always growing and changing. Self-storage is no exception. You will find the newest, greatest tools to help you run your business more efficiently. One of the most fun parts of a convention is the vendor expo where vendors share the hottest trends. It’s a great place to get ideas and be creative with your business.

How do I know which convention is a good one?

At Weaver Realty, we are the Argus Affiliate since 1999 for the state of Florida excluding the panhandle. We have two great conventions to recommend.

  1. Florida Self-Storage Association Conference & Expo
  2. Inside Self Storage World Expo

The Florida Self-Storage Association Conference is already past for 2021, but you can prepare now to attend next year. You won’t be disappointed. It’s a 3-day event packed with so much value.

The ISS World Expo is in less than a week – July 13-16 in Las Vegas. There’s still time if you ready to make a move. This is an excellent event with 4 days of education and 2 days of exhibition from vendors. This is a bigger event, and you will learn a lot.

It’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day work of owning a self-storage business. It’s important also to take time to recharge and connect with others in the same field. This helps you grow as an individual and as an entrepreneur.
