We are thrilled to be able to invite StoreLocal CEO, Hans Pearson to join us at the first ever Self Storage Expo Asia Online, and he has invited THE INDUSTRY LEADERS in the Australia and New Zealand market to share the latest industry trends and innovations with us. 

Hans has established an extensive background in self storage since 2008. Hans brings many years of property experience as a lawyer, investment banker, and funds manager in the Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane markets. He and his team at StoreLocal has started a popular webcast in early 2020 with the aim of providing a forum for the industry to discuss issues relating to the pandemic. Guests so far have included UK Self Storage Association CEO Rennie Shafer, prominent Hong Kong Self Storage operator Kevin Shee, US self storage expert Scott Jensen, and an OH&S consultant from Australia, who provided advice on how to deal with COVID -19- related issues.


Operators have many reasons to up their investment game. Whether looking for a great exit, investment to expand or even funds to get started, investment fuels the industry. While recent multi-billion dollar announcements are grabbing headlines, smaller deals are being done and great value exists for investors whether experienced, new, or currently 'self-storage curious'.
