Las Vegas, Nevada is known for many things and having a good time usually is first on the To Do list when visiting for leisure, or in my case work. So USSelfStorageLocator.com staffers left balmy South Florida for the steamy city of big lights in the dessert, on a mission to display our website and what we have to offer to all in attendance. USSSL staff bonded for one common cause/goal. Oh yeah, we had a wonderful time in the process at the 2011 ISS World Expo March 14-16th.
USSelfStorageLocator.com was in the building and from the minute you entered the ISS World Expo our presence was easily visible. I’ll get back to that later.
On the first day of the conference the entire USSSL staff was swamped for hours, as owner/operators and managers signed up and inquired about our great product. Our 10x20-booth was energetically-bustling with interested parties to the point where all four of our computers were constantly occupied—simultaneously for hours. In an effort not to inconvenience those waiting patiently, we “zapped” (collected) contact information from interested patrons, and reverted to having individuals fill-out manual forms that contained pertinent information such as “number of facilities” and “management software” while also accepting old school business cards.
Prominently an 8 x 4 ft. USSelfStorageLocator.com sign was noticeable as soon as attendees, speakers, and exhibitors entered the expo area. If by any chance the first sign didn’t catch your eye, another hugantic sign which offered early “flight check-in” capabilities, was sponsored by USSelfStorageLocator.com and positioned for those wanting to take advantage of receiving their tickets/boarding passes safely away from the hordes at McCarran International Airport. On the final day of the expo, predictably, the station was steadily busy—however not exceeding four people in line at a-time.
Finally our esteemed CEO Victor Dante and the lovely Ms. Grace sauntered around the showroom floor and met with exhibitors who were diligently working their own booths. This casual form of networking will no doubt result in positive relationships for years to come.
All-in-all the USSelfStorageLocator.com team was well received and we look forward to doing business with all the wonderful folks that took the time to sign-up or simply came by to say hi. We evidently made a big splash by the turnout and we intend on riding this wave all the way to THE TOP.
