2021 is going to be a year of caution in light of on-going developments with COVID-19. The SSAA has had numerous discussions with the Board of Directors and other membership organisations and as a result are looking forward to the Online – “Learning Event of the Year” that will take place over two days on Tuesday, March 9 and Wednesday, March 10.
The SSAA believes this is the safest approach for the well-being of members and staff. We are excited that the online event makes it possible to broaden the learning opportunities and engagement within the industry during this time.
Attendees will be able to participate online in conversations around changes within the industry. The number one thing that SSAA members see as a highlight of in-person events is networking and we are ensuring this will occur online. Attendees will be able to partake in interactive and engaging experiences through a new dynamic online conference platform. The online system has interactive exhibition features and includes multiple opportunities for sponsorship exposure, all while attendees connect from the comfort and safety of their home or office.
The Learning Event of the Year program will be spread out over two days consisting of five hour days so that the content is presented in more digestible segments. Best of all, sessions will be easily accessible on-demand for registered attendees to view at their convenience, post the event.
Over the two days, you will hear from experts in the self storage industry on many topics and content from novice to master levels will be offered.
Content will include innovative methods to market your facility, adopting new software and technology systems to help with the smooth running of your facility. Or for those who are building or expanding their facilities, there is a wide range of design and construction companies that can provide expert advice and practical solutions.
The 2021 online- “Learning Event of the Year” is designed especially for those who work in the self storage industry and that includes service providers, administrative personnel and facility owners.
The SSAA has hand-picked experts to lead each of the sessions. The presenter’s reputations and expertise in specific topics will make this online format as empowering, informative and enlightening as the in-person annual events
Speakers will include Craig James, Chief Economist – CommSec, Ashley Fell, Social Researcher – McCrindles, Linda Sharkey – Cushman & Wakefield, Makala Ffrench Castelli – mfc.co, Jacqui Scott – The Great Scott Company, Rebecca Smith – That Comms Co., Chuck Gordon, CEO – Storable, Warren Lieberman, President – Veritec Solutions, Tony Raunic – Hunt & Hunt, Darryl King – Jackson Russell and others.
