A square foot is a measure of area; 1 sq ft equals the area of a rectangle that is 1 ft wide and 1 ft long. Likewise, 1 square meter equals the area of a rectangle whose sides are 1 m long.

For a square with width w and length l, you get the area a by multiplying:

a = w * l

As 1 ft = 0.3048 m, this equates to

1 sq ft = 1 ft * 1 ft = 0.3048 m * 0.3048 m = 0.09290304 sq m

So 1 square foot = approximately .093 square meters, so 1000 square feet would equal approximately 93 square meters.
