On 14th May 2018, 21 Italian self-storage companies representing over 50 self-storage locations (the great majority of the industry) gathered together in the Star Hotel Michelangelo in the beautiful city of Florence to celebrate the 2nd annual conference presented by Steel Storage and organised by AISI (the Italian self-storage association).
It was an extremely informative and enjoyable day of industry specific presentations concerning legal aspects, sales maximisation, insurance and mobile marketing techniques was had by all. The sponsors were given the opportunity to present themselves at length to the delegates and there was also time to engage in networking over lunch and in the breaks.
AISI kindly supplied an interpreter, which was greatly appreciated by all and enabled the audience to participate pro-actively. The President of both AISI and FEDESSA and the owner of the largest Italian operator, Casaforte, Mr Cesare Carcano began the event with a warm welcome to all and stressed the importance of these get-togethers in order to further the market perception of the industry, which is still very much in its infancy in Italy.
The whole event was professionally recorded for prosperity including a number of interviews and we look forward to being able to re-live the event sometime in the near future. In closing, it was announced that the next conference will provisionally be held in Venice sometime in 2019.
Steel Storage would like to thank the AISI team and in particular Vanessa Digoncelli for a well-organised and first-class conference, which we all thoroughly enjoyed. Here’s to 2019 and grazie mille!”
