We offer supplier members a host of opportunities to promote products or services to the entire SSA UK membership and beyond.
From networking opportunities at events to advertising in our regular member publications or sponsoring one of our online or live events, we offer options to suit all requirements and budgets.
Summary of Key Opportunities
Our quarterly UNLOCKED magazine is the only regular magazine dedicated to self storage with a circulation of approximately 2,100 including members of all 14 European Self Storage Associations. Each issue includes UK and European news, articles and matters of general interest to help keep members informed of what is happening within the industry. The magazine is invaluable for existing and new operators considering purchases of equipment and/or services. Published four times during the calendar year - usually March, June, September and December, it is a popular channel for our supplier members, many of whom advertise regularly, taking advantage of the generous discounts on offer.
Our in-person events provide numerous opportunities throughout the year to meet and network with operators, investors and other supplier members to keep up-to-date and to discuss industry trends and opportunities.
Both the annual SSA UK Conference and the FEDESSA Conference & Trade Show offer promotional opportunities from advertising in pre-conference brochures to exhibiting in the trade shows or, through the range of sponsorship packages on offer, with options to suit all types and budgets.
The annual Winter Workshop, Regional Members’ Networking Dinners, Business Lunches or Topical Webinars and our Online Training sessions provide specific sponsorship opportunities to supplier members, some with speaking slots. We also encourage suppliers to participate in the complimentary CEO Update Webinars and the Sector Forums covering, UK Legal, Technology & Innovation, Security, Women in Business and Containers.
And unlike many associations, our supplier members have access to the full membership list. This enables contact with members post-event, can be used to create awareness of a promotional offer or use this valuable customer data as an integral part of an annual marketing campaign.
Supplier members are also listed in the online Supplier Directory on both the SSA UK and FEDESSA websites and included in the printed Supplier Directory (see below).
