There's no better investment you can make than the comprehensive, relevant information you'll get in the ISS World Expo workshops. For your convenience, we've scheduled these to take place before and after the exhibit-hall and seminar days so you won't miss a thing! This year’s offerings include:

Thursday, April 5, Noon - 1:00 p.m.

These intimate networking opportunities provide a more personal and interactive setting for exploring key industry topics. Each discussion will kick off with a three-minute presentation followed by 12 minutes of Q&A. Rotations will occur every 15 minutes.

As self-storage builds momentum abroad and gains a foothold in emerging markets, many opportunities and challenges arise for its operators, investors and developers. If you’re looking to “go global” or you’re already there, our International Program will provide you with the insight you need to successfully expand your business and maximize your return on investment.

For our Spanish-speaking attendees, we are pleased to offer these educational sessions in your native language.
