It’s that time of year again – the annual European Self Storage Association conference and Trade Show.
This time it’s in the sunshine at Vilamoura on the Algarve in Portugal. Nice but just a shame that most of our time is spent in the confernce rooms and trade show exhibition hall…
I have to say that it’s more enjoyable to be attending just as a regular delegate – for 5 years I attended either as Board Member or Chairman of the UK Self Storage Association which brought with it numerous responsibilities and also impacted on the time you could put into learning about all that was new in the industry.
Over the next couple of days there are presentations on the latest on online marketing, security, the development of the industry across Europe, insurance and more. I also hope to pick some information on the latest products, roller shutters and video surveillance for example to make sure we continue to develop the business and offer our customers the best possible storage solution.
Nothing stands still for long, and after 18 years in self storage it is amazing how much it has developed – let’s see what the next couple of days hold!
