NPSA Offers Conference Attendees Productivity Tips

NPSA Operations Manager Joel Rathbone offers tips for making the most of the portable storage industry’s annual conference this November.

Kansas City, MO, August 12, 2010 --( The National Portable Storage Association (NPSA), a nonprofit membership association dedicated to the advancement of the portable storage industry, is offering tips on how to make the most of its annual conference in Orlando at the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Hotel Nov. 7-9.

“Take the time to walk the show thoroughly and completely. Each booth is an opportunity for you. And as an exhibitor, each attendee is someone who may need your service,” said Joel Rathbone, Operations Manager for the NPSA. “Carry a small note pad and take as many notes as possible. Knowledge is power. Find out what new products, techniques and services are available that can help you expand your business and increase productivity and profitability.”

Conference attendees should make a list of what they specifically want to learn, Rathbone said, and attend the seminars and meetings the NPSA has set up. Ask people what they are doing in their companies today and what they see for the future. And use the conference as an idea exchange. Talk to association executives, seminar leaders and other industry experts while at the show to get their perspective on the future, Rathbone suggested.

“Those operations that arm themselves with industry knowledge and are willing to take action toward positive change will have the ability to carry their organization into a successful future. If you want to increase your ability to remain competitive, you need to attend your industry trade show,” Rathbone says. “It is the vehicle to obtain the knowledge that you need to help you strategize, improve operations and make smart decisions to help you compete and win.”
