In the storage industry, portable storage trade shows and conferences are a great way to mingle with other businesses. Generally, these events are 2-3 days and can be helpful for networking, research, education, and brand awareness. See how portable storage trade shows are important for your business:
Trade shows provide a networking platform for industry professionals, including manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, and customers to network and establish relationships with each other. As a result, you can gain new partnerships, collaborations, and idea exchanges.
At trade shows and conferences, your business can research information about the latest trends, market demand, and competitor offerings. This will help inform your product development, marketing strategies, and other business decisions.
Many portable storage trade shows offer educational “break-out” sessions and training workshops that can help industry professionals stay current on the latest developments. Above all, this is especially important in the portable container storage industry, where new requirements, freight rates, tax codes and safety standards may be discussed.
Trade shows are a great place to create brand awareness and show off your business’s products and services to a wider audience. In summary, all of this can help to attract new customers and increase sales. Boxwell recently attended the NPSA Conference & Trade Show 2023. See photos:
If you’re in the portable storage industry, you probably already know about National Portable Storage Association (NPSA). If not, check it out! This non-profit membership association is dedicated to the portable storage industry. Members of NPSA are business owners and decision makers. Overall, NPSA is a resource for information, networking, marketing, advocacy, and storage needs. Additionally, the association can also help businesses locate a storage manufacturer. NPSA can help businesses who sell, rent or lease storage containers, semi-trailers, or mobile offices to end users. This includes relocatable self-storage operators in the moving and storage business for commercial and residential use.
This year’s portable storage trade show, NPSA Conference & Trade Show 2023, was last week at the Mirage in Las Vegas. Customers had face-to-face meetings in the Grand Ballroom, where more than 50 exhibitors present the most up-to-date products and services to portable storage providers from around the world. With over 400 companies, 1,000 attendees, and 32,000 feet of exhibit hall space, this portable storage trade show is not to be missed. As a leading supplier of portable and relocatable self-storage units, Boxwell is a member of National Portable Storage Association (NPSA) and proud sponsor of their Annual Conference & Trade Show.
Pete Warhurst was this year’s keynote speaker for NPSA Conference & Trade Show. As the founder of Portable On Demand Storage (PODS®), Pete has worked for decades to innovate and simplify storage. As we all know, moving can get complicated. And PODS® is the original on-demand storage solution that brings storage directly to the customer. In Pete’s address, he shared with us what It takes to “innovate, transform, and disrupt industries.” Throughout the years, his goal has been to provide new ways to think about the traditional moving and storage industries.
Most recently, Pete founded Red Rover®. And Boxwell has been a proud supplier to this rising portable storage business. Red Rover® provides an affordable and convenient moving and storage option, which they call Fetchable Storage®. Essentially, it’s a storage container on a truck that you drive. His business focuses on making moving and storage easier, affordable, and less stressful. In Pete’s words, “We combine the best parts of the moving and storage Industry– the affordability of renting a truck and using self-storage, and the convenience of portable storage, but is cheaper and more convenient.” Pete is also bringing more exciting innovations to the moving and storage space and is now actively selling Red Rover franchises.
To recognize the exceptional work of its members, NPSA holds a Portable Storage Awards during the conference. This year, Boxwell was selected as a finalist for the NPSA Portable Storage Awards in the Humanitarian category.
