    Thumbs up New Orleans Expo Running Thread Day One

    Live from Brad North's excellent morning workshop "Excelling in Your Self-Storage Operation," this is John checking in as we have kicked off the 2010 Iss Expo.

    If you're at the show, please post reactions and questions in this thread - and if you're at home, clamoring for updates, keep after us, and we'll provide as much as we can. Education tracks kick off in about 20 minutes.

    Ask and you shall receive!

    UPDATE: Out of the three education tracks (Facility Marketing & Sales, Day-to-Day Ops and Management, and Construction/Development), I'd say the marketing track is the leader so far in attendance. An overflow crowd piled into the first session at 9 a.m. -- "Is Your Facility's Online Activity Delivering Results" -- for Mario Feghali from SpareFoot.com's presentation. Staff carted in additional chairs. We've actually rearranged the room placement of the tracks to accomodate the big crowds for the marketing sessions.

    I think it speaks volumes about the industry that they've chosen that as the hot content.

    For those of you attending, sales and marketing sessions (Track 1) are now in La Galeries 4. Construction, Development and Finance (Track 3) has moved to La Galaries 3.

    How many other active SSTers here do we have in attendance? Check in here!

    Education rooms are packed and everyone is clamoring for info! I'm sitting in on the marketing track. Questions are flying! Self-Storage Q&A in a few hours followed by the opening of the exhibit hall. If you're here, stop by the SST booth.

    Mel Holsinger, longtime SST poster and respected owner, just began the session he's leading by stripping down. The tie came off and everything. Scandalous!
