Illinois SSA 2019 Fall Summit- Recap

The 2019 IL-SSA Fall Summit was held on Thursday, November 7 at the iHotel and Conference Center in Champaign, IL. The summit was a great success, with over 70 attendees.  It was a lively day filled with a variety of activities. In addition to plenty of valuable networking opportunities, the day featured educational sessions led by industry leading speakers, roundtables and dedicated time to visit with exhibitors.  

Thank you to our coffee break sponsor Waikato Enterprises Inc. The educational sessions commenced with Jeffrey Greenberger of Greenberger & Brewer LLP leading a discussion on the legal implications of electronic leasing, followed by a legislative update by SSA’s Joe Doherty.  The lunch hour began with exhibitor introductions, and many took advantage of the opportunity to learn about new products from the many vendors and network with colleagues and competitors. Thank you to our lunch sponsor, Storable.  Following lunch, attendees took part in roundtable discussions with industry vendors. Next, Christine Alvino of FineView Marketing kicked off the afternoon education session where she spoke about a digital marketing mix to drive leads.  The final session of the day by Phil Murphy of CallPotential and Next Door Self Storage addressed technology that can help your bottom line.  Thank you to all the attendees and exhibitors for a successful summit. 

From the exhibitors to the educational sessions, networking and roundtables, the IL-SSA Fall Summit provided wonderful opportunities for owners, operators and managers to get together, network, learn, and discuss events surrounding the self storage industry across the state of Illinois.  Be sure to check out the presentation slides by going to the meeting archives under the events tab

We hope to see you at the IL-SSA Great Lakes Owners Summit and Expo on June 16 & 17, 2020 at the Union League Club of Chicago.
