Sitting squarely in the heart of a great city, The Moscone Center also anchors an exceptional neighborhood. Known for its museums and galleries, its restaurants and theaters, its hotels, shops, and expansive urban gardens, our Yerba Buena neighborhood, part of the South of Market area, is also home to thousands of San Franciscans.
The complexity of this urban fabric provides the energy and excitement that distinguishes our setting from those of other convention centers the world over. It also offers us daily opportunities to really participate in the life of our community, as well the challenges of operating in a dense and layered environment.
We are actively involved in our community. Through our role in countless organizations and communication vehicles, we maintain a direct connection to our neighbors. We have been able to offer business opportunities to local enterprises through our willingness to partner with specialty food vendors and service providers.
With a workforce of nearly 1,200 SMG employees, our operation supports thousands of additional jobs through the service providers and contractors who directly service our conventions and tradeshows annually.
