There is no place better for networking and business group gatherings than the Big Island of Hawai'i.
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.

We have secured great room rates at our host hotel, The Waikoloa Marriott.
By the time October, 2021 arrives, we should be living in a new "normal" that allows for safe travel, and for safe, small business gatherings like ours.
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, 2021 the airline and hotel businesses will have many practices in place to make travel comfortable and comforting. The Hawai'i Department of Health is staying on top of the situation and issuing daily updates. Check in with the Hawai'i Department of Health for updates with this link.

"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."
