The National Portable Storage Association (NPSA) has announced that it will be holding two conventions in 2010....The first convention, the Spring Seminar, will take place from April 26-27, 2010, at the Hilton Hotel in Virginia Beach, Virginia. At the Spring Seminar, members traditionally focus on education, networking, and any special issues, opportunities or challenges that are facing the industry. Remembering the 2009 Spring Seminar, NPSA Executive Director John Finnessy commented, "Last year in Santa Barbara, we focused on what happened in the second hand market for shipping containers in key industries....In 2010, we'll continue our tradition of addressing the challenges our industry faces, as well as hosting a venue for strategic networking."
NPSA's second convention of the year will be its signature event, the 8th Annual Conference and Trade Show. This year the show will be held at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando, Florida. More than 650 people attended last year's trade show, which had 50 exhibitors and was held in October at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas. The 2009 event was co-sponsored by the Mobile Self-Storage Association. [More]
