Need Data?

Poppy Behrens, AZSA Trade Show Chair

Join Us In Arizona!

Information is the key to success. Given the importance of that fact in our industry, I would like to tell you about a very unique opportunity and personally invite you to the Arizona Self Storage Association’s (AZSA) 2nd Annual Owners Summit on Sept. 27, 2017, at the Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino, Chandler, Ariz. Once again hosted by The BSC Group, this is an exceptional event you will want to attend, regardless of whether you do business in Arizona.

This year our keynote speaker is Steve Cortes, CNBC contributor and commentator, and author of the book Against the Herd. He is also a Fox News contributor and has appeared daily on TV news programs for a decade. A Wall Street trader and strategist for two decades, Mr. Cortes presently serves as head strategist for BGC Partners, providing risk management strategies to banks and hedge funds. He will discuss what the Trump Presidency means for the economy, as well as risks and opportunities within it—all in the context of what he describes as a massive electoral.

In addition, for the first time ever, the AZSA Owners Summit will bring together the four leading data providers for the self-storage industry—REIS, STR, Union RealTime, and Yardi—to present a sample of their data individually. Concluding the day, all four data providers will come together on a panel to discuss the critical need for collective data in the self-storage industry.

Also featured at this year’s event are:

• Google’s self-storage expert, Rachel Seidman, discussing what to expect from Google in the future, how it plays out for self-storage, and what it means for you as an owner or investor.

• Lunch with a Legend: Mike Burnam, CEO of StorageMart; Mike will elaborate on how StorageMart is bringing a “breath of fresh air” into their modus operandi, using data analysis to identify the best acquisitions and steer clear of the less attractive ones.

• Ben Vestal, president of the Argus Self Storage Sales Network, speaking about the real estate and development cycle and new strategies and opportunities to invest and position your self-storage assets for success as it continues to change.

In order to open this extraordinary presentation to our friends and colleagues outside of Arizona, AZSA has created a special non-association member rate of $190. Registration also includes the AZSA Operational Symposium on Thurs., Sept. 28.

Please join us on Sept. 27, 2017, at Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino in Chandler, Ariz., just 12 miles from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. For details and registration please feel free to call me or visit to register.
