Mixing & Mingling

Registration  for our self storage conference is limited to 100 participants, so everyone has a chance to get to know each other in more meaningful ways than possible in a standard conference.  As an un-conference, we have the flexibility to adapt content and presentations to your interests.  There is no place better for networking and business group gatherings than the Big Island of Hawai'i. 

Marriott Waikoloa Beach

Registration

Stay for the entire week, or come for the main sessions. Our host hotel, the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort and Spa offers a splendid location for opening your mind, relaxing your body, and soothing your spirit.  We'll have self storage conference work sessions in the mornings and networking the rest of the day.

COVID 19 and the un-conference

By the time October arrives, we may be living in a new "normal" that we will not yet understand. The unconference will be the perfect place to figure out what our next "next" is going to be. Wear your face masks. Bring hand sanitizer. We can hold an event like this while doing everything we can to minimize transmission risks.  We are going to need a gathering like this to regroup and move forward into the new world. 


By October the airline and hotel businesses will have many practices in place to make travel comfortable and comforting. As of April 28, 2020, the Hawai'i Department of Health reported 70 confirmed COVID-19 cases on the Big Island of Hawai'i since the outbreak began, with 51 already released from isolation, and no new cases reported on the 27th and 28th. Check in with the Hawai'i Department of Health for updates with this link.

Lisa will be there. Will you?

"The Self Storage Hawaii Un-Conference is the conference to go to.  Not just because of the beautiful location in Hawaii, but for the real business connections that you make.  I always felt that some of my biggest take-aways from the SSA conferences were from the people I met and talked to.  Listening to other owners' experiences and knowledge is extremely beneficial.  


Networking with a smaller group of people and doing fun outings makes strong bonds with these business connections invaluable. Learning about the ever evolving storage industry, making amazing business connections, and having fun growing your business wealth of information is the Self Storage Hawaii Un- Conference."

Planned Sessions may include:

The Disruptors

Hear from panelists representing the most interesting and daunting potential disruptions to the traditional self storage business. There will be plenty of time for Q and A at this self storage conference. There is plenty of time for discussions among the group as we try to make sense of what may or may not upend our businesses. 

The REITs

Pay attention as a panel of representatives for the self storage REITs discuss their impressions of the business, and their plans for the future. Anyone in the self storage business needs to listen carefully since the REITs carry so much power and influence.  The REIT executives show up at every self storage conference. But this one offers a real chance to get to know them. 

The Private Equity

The speed and intensity in which private equity groups have recently built self storage portfolios should be of great interest to everyone in the business. What is next for them? How will that impact the rest of us? This self storage conference is about asking big questions.
