It’s not your same old trade show. The Arizona Self Storage Association will hold its annual conference and trade show on May 14-15, 2013.

In celebration of its fifteenth anniversary, the Arizona Self Storage Association (AZSA) has announced a brand new format for the 2013 Conference and Trade Show.

A silent auction to benefit Kure-It Cancer Research will also be conducted throughout the event.

“As always, we would like to thank our title sponsor, Deans and Homer/Universal Insurance; our major sponsors, MiniCo, Chateau Products, BNC National Bank, and U-Haul International; and our promotional sponsor, the "Mini Storage Messenger," for their generous support," said conference co-chair Travis Morrow. “Without them, the annual conference and trade show would not be possible!”

Other speakers on stage for this fabulous two-day event include Jim Rounds, Senior Vice President and Senior Economist with Elliott D. Pollack and Company, one of Arizona’s premier providers of economic and real estate consulting services; Cushman & Wakefield’s Chris Sonne, who will present the 2013 Arizona Market Report; The Hat Lady herself, Anne Ballard, one of the industry’s foremost experts on self-storage management and marketing; Joe Schoen, President and CEO of U-Haul International; Hardy Good, Chairman and CEO of MiniCo Asia Ltd; Ben Vestal, President of Argus Self Storage Sales Network; and Bill Alter of Rein and Grossoehme Commercial Real Estate.
