On-site Storage During Events

Storage areas are limited to those designated by ASM for Contractor storage. These areas are reserved primarily for use by the General Service Contractor. All other Service Providers and EACs must check with the General Service Contractor for available storage within the pre-approved areas. All equipment and materials including ladders, tools and construction materials will be confined to the specific areas of the exhibit hall or display areas for which the client has been contracted. If ASM designates any additional areas for temporary storage of such equipment or materials, this will be communicated to the Contractor’s representative upon check-in either by the General Service Contractor, the Fire Marshal or Moscone Event Manager. Unless otherwise notified, all equipment not placed in approved storage areas must be removed from Moscone Center prior to the opening of the event.


Please note that Moscone Center equipment may not be moved, removed, or repositioned to make room for Contractor storage.


The following areas may not be used for storage under any circumstances:

  • Emergency exits
  • Moscone Center store rooms and storage areas
  • Airwall pockets
  • Traffic lanes
  • Restrooms
  • Food & Beverage locations and holding kitchens
  • Public lobby areas and corridors
  • Freight-free aisles
  • Compactors and debris boxes
  • Elevators and stairwells
  • Administration offices
  • Mechanical spaces


ASM reserves the right to retain or relinquish any storage areas based upon need. In addition, all equipment left in Moscone Center or in areas not approved for storage by Contractors will be removed and disposed of at the expense of the owner.
