Our History

On May 18, 1990 a handful of enthusiastic Self Storage facility operators gathered in the Swagman Room at the Hotel Lawson, Ultimo, Sydney and held the inaugural meeting of the proposed Australian Self Storage Association. Early meetings argued about the proposed name for the Association, how the committee should be structured, which laws might apply to the industry and the desire to emulate the US Self Storage Association. The first trade show was held at the same hotel on September 28, 1990. The following day a steering committee was appointed and the 32 foundation members were welcomed.
