The presentation will cover a variety of topics related to planning and permitting an expansion, and common snags that developers run into during the process. We will also discuss the improvements that you’ll look at when you purchase an older facility – including security, management, and marketing, as well as some hard to fix problems and red flags to look for and avoid when buying.

2021 EXPO Update

Due to the repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Northeast Self Storage Association Board of Directors has had to make the difficult decision to reschedule the annual Northeast Storage EXPO until 2022. At this time our venue is still shut down, and the state of Massachusetts is imposing a 10-day quarantine or a recent negative COVID test to outside travelers along with additional gathering restrictions. With so many unknowns, planning a large event is impossible at this time.

In order to allow enough time for these obstacles to subside, the EXPO will now be held May 10th and 11th, 2022 at the MGM in Springfield, MA. All exhibitors have been informed and given the option of a full refund or a registration transfer, and speakers have been notified as well.

We will continue to plan our live half-day educational Retreat for October 7th, 2021 at the Publick House Historic Inn in Sturbridge, MA. More information on this event will be available soon.

NeSSA remains dedicated to providing our members and all those within the Northeast storage industry with the highest quality of education and most accurate information possible. We will be reaching out in the coming weeks with a survey about education; please be sure to participate so your voice is heard. You can also check back here and on our social media pages for news and updates.

Like you, we are once again extremely disappointed that we will not get to meet at our EXPO this year. Know that we are here for you and that you can reach out to us with questions at any time.
