Self Storage Industry Events of 2020 Cancelled and Rescheduled for Next Year

Blog > Events

November 30, 2020


Self storage industry events have been rescheduled this year. Every year, self storage associations bring thousands, sometimes tens of thousands of industry leaders together to share ideas. However, this year is not like any other. The unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic that quickly spread across the nation, affected many men, women, and children. Meanwhile, it’s contagiousness risks everyone else not infected. 

In the wake of the pandemic, self storage associations postponed their industry events awaiting instructions from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as their governors. It seems that everyone was under some sort of shelter-in-place order to help slow the spread of Covid-19. 

As the summer months passed, the spread didn’t seem to improve, prompting the associations to cancel the events and start planning for next year. Currently, both self storage operators and vendors have valuable resources to take-away from in remote formats including webinars and virtual exhibits. Perhaps at some point next year, we will get a place where it’s safer to meet in person.

Below, we’ll cover a few self storage events that have already started planning for next year, as well as others to keep an eye on.
