The Moscone Center (Moscone North, South and West) consists of more than two million square feet of building area, including over 700,000 square of exhibit space, up to 106 meeting rooms, and nearly 123,000 square feet of prefunction lobbies.
The planned expansion of Moscone Center will benefit the City in many ways, including the creation of 3,424 long-term jobs (in addition to construction jobs).
Highly engineered to meet stringent seismic standards, a unique coupled-girder system is designed to minimize structural damage in the event of an earthquake up to a magnitude of 8.2, in combination with a system of 248 friction dampers that act to dissipate seismic energy.
The Moscone Center has up to 106 meeting rooms and up to 256,225 square feet of meeting space.
The Moscone Center Expansion and Improvement Project is expected to generate $734 million in new economic impact and $20 million in additional hotel tax revenue.
The expansion of Moscone Center will add approximately 350,000 to 400,000 square feet to the convention center, including 80,000 or more square feet of contiguous exhibit, essential for attracting larger conventions.
The largest contiguous exhibit and column-free space is the exhibit space in Moscone South. Moscone South's Halls A, B and C when combined into a single exhibit space measure 260,560 square feet.
Moscone Center currently hosts 1 million visitors each year and generates more than $1.6 billion in visitor spending. This spending contributes millions of dollars to the City’s General Fund and supports thousands of jobs.
Tourism is the single biggest contributor to San Francisco's economy and Moscone Center is responsible for 21% of it.
