The city of San Francisco is a fantastic place to hold a trade show or exhibition. This large and vibrant city holds a wealth of attractions, as well as several excellent event venues. Even better, thanks to the Bay Area Rapid Transit system, most venues and hotels are easily accessible using public transportation.
One of the Golden Gate City’s most popular event venues is the South San Francisco Conference Center, with over 20,000 square feet of meeting space, a 6,000 square-foot lobby, and proximity to more 3,000 nearby hotel rooms. The Moscone Center is even larger, with 700,000 square feet of exhibit space, and over 100 meeting rooms. Both locations have great access to both public transport and local airports.
