Everyone's Favorite Place to Meet
Break Conference Attendance Records
Think of the best cities in the United States to visit. San Francisco inevitably comes to mind for meeting planners and it will for conference attendees, too. Announcing San Francisco as your selected meeting location will have attendees smiling over visions of the Golden Gate Bridge and cable cars. Incredible dining, shopping, cultural attractions and natural beauty mean there's something to appeal to every type of attendee. The city's allure, coupled with strong airlift into San Francisco International Airport, allows San Francisco to draw record-breaking attendance even in challenging economic times.
Host a Truly Central Event
Located just off Interstate 80 and blocks from Union Square, the Moscone Center is about as central as it gets in San Francisco's seven-by-seven miles. The Center is located near an abundance of hotels, restaurants, museums, attractions and public transit options. Moscone offers nearly 1 million square feet of meeting and exhibit space including more than 100 meeting rooms, three enormous ballrooms and more than 120,000 square feet of pre-function lobbies.

Whether it's providing free lead service for hotels and facilities that meet your needs or coordinating and accompanying you on site inspections, you can count on the experts at the San Francisco Travel Association to help your meeting succeed.
Do it Green
Everyone talks about being green, but Moscone Center backs it up with a huge commitment to the environment that dates back to 1998 — well before it was a trendy marketing measure. Moscone has been setting the recycling standard for convention centers for more than a decade, diverting nearly 2 million square feet of materials from landfills each year. The 2003 expansion that upgraded the center to more than 2 million square feet includes important resource-efficient design features, high-performance windows and lighting mechanical systems that exceed Title 24 Energy Efficiency standards, a full-time air-quality technician on staff, and one of the nation's largest municipally owned rooftop solar installations.
Immerse Attendees in San Francisco Culture
If there is one trait that best defines San Francisco, it's our diversity, which lends a unique tone to any meeting or event. Attendees can explore one-of-a-kind neighborhoods such as the Haight-Ashbury, Mission District, Japantown and dozens of other cities within the city; a thriving LGBT culture; the world-renowned SF MOMA and a bevy of other art and cultural institutions; theater, dance and musical performances they'll see nowhere else; and ethnically diverse foods that will have them raving about their San Francisco experience for years to come.
