The national Self Storage Association (SSA) has announced that it will hold its spring convention and trade show from April 18 to 20 at The Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Colorado is a state with a lot of sentimental value for the Self Storage Association, which was founded in Denver 35 years ago, in 1975. This year's convention, therefore, will also be a celebration of the SSA's 35th anniversary.

About 1,000 self storage owners, operators, investors, developers, executives, and industry vendors are expected to attend the convention and participate in the trade show. Important leaders in the self storage industry will also be present, and will give talks and participate in educational panel sessions. [More]
