Enthusiasm Already Running High for 2017 Owners Summit

For 12 years now, the California Self Storage Association (CSSA), with the guidance of Talonvest Capital Inc., has been putting on the Self Storage Owners Summit in Newport Beach. And with each passing year the conference has grown in size and stature to the point where it is considered one of the finest self storage gatherings in the United States. The 13th Annual Self Storage Owners Summit on July 20, 2017, at the Balboa Bay Resort will be no different.

Even eight months in advance the excitement is building as the three panelists in the CEO Super Session have been announced. They are Dave Rogers – CEO – Life Storage, Joseph Margolis – CEO – Extra Space Storage, and Arlen Nordhangen – CEO, President & Chairman of the Board – National Storage Affiliates.

“The tremendous support that CSSA owner-operator members and experienced owners from around the country have given to our annual Self Storage Owners Summit over the past 12 years made it possible for us to move from a 190 person capacity room to a large ballroom at the historical Balboa Bay Resort on the Newport Bay, which we have sold out days in advance each of the past 3 years with over 260 industry attendees,” said Jim Davies, Principal at Talonvest Capital, Inc.. 

Attendees tell Talonvest and the CSSA that they return year after year because the educational content comes from both high-caliber industry speakers and leaders and from nationally known leaders from outside the self storage industry.  They also point to the high percentage of experienced owners that make up the majority of Summit attendees which results in extremely valuable relationship building.

“We anticipate another sold out event on July 20th, 2017 due in large part because 3 public CEO’s have graciously accepted our invitation to participate in the CEO Super Session,” added Davies. “Thanks to the participation of Dave Rogers, Joseph Margolis, and Arlen Nordhagen, we’ve been told that this will be the first time three public CEO’s have ever spoken at the same state association sponsored event.”

 “I continue to be impressed each year with the talented speakers our partners at Talonvest are able to attract,” added Erin King, executive director of the CSSA. “Given that the event usually sells out, I would encourage all owner/operators in our state to sign up for the 2017 event. The Owners Summit is always filled with great insights and good times. The 13th annual event is sure to be another success.”
