It really depends on the solvent you dissolved it in. The worry is whether
the sulfo-NHS or NHS groups will hydrolyze. If it is dry, then store it
in the fridge dessicated. If wet, it won't last too long anyway because
the minute you start thawing it, the solvent will soak up water. But
storing it at -80 is your best bet.
