Hard keys are available for most meeting rooms in The Moscone Center. In addition, a limited number of locks can be re-cored to accommodate an event’s specific needs.


For rooms that partially or entirely consist of air walls, there are emergency exit doors between rooms that cannot be locked on the crash-bar side of those doors, limiting the ability to fully secure some rooms. If any high-security functions for an event will need fully secured space, please consult the Moscone Event Manager for recommendations.


Keys are typically issued to one pre-designated member of the show management team, who will then be responsible for their return. While there is no deposit collected, there will be a charge of $50 per key for any keys not returned by the event’s final move-out day.
