The Consumer Electronics Show lost electricity because irony knows no bounds

  • CES 2018

One convention center employee who asked not to be identified said he has worked at CES for 10 years and had never seen anything like this outage.

The CES 2018 event experienced a blackout Wednesday, putting one of the world's largest displays of tech and electronic devices at a standstill for almost two hours.

The annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas experienced one of the least expected occurrences in the tech convention's history-a power outage. Some meeting rooms in South Hall also lost power.

On one level, this was a classic Vegas stunt, a cheap way for the club to cash in on the presence of the world's largest tech convention.

Multiple reports noted the outage hit around 11:15 PT. Conference organizers soon confirmed the incident on Twitter and expressed appreciation for attendees' patience until the problem could be resolved. Sony, Samsung, Intel, Qualcomm and LG are among the companies with bigger booths in the convention center's Central Hall, the area that was most affected and evacuated during the blackout. Thankfully, this is CES, so there are plenty of folks on-hand to document the Central Hall evacuation and the freaky scene inside.

The power outage wasn't the only mishap of the week. The Tesla booth appears to be making the most out of an unfortunate situation, and this violin player at the Intel booth seems to still be having an okay time.

NV Energy, the region's power supplier, hasn't responded to requests for comments.

UPDATE: Jan. 10, 2018, 2:17 p.m. PST The Las Vegas Visitor and Convention Authority, NV Energy, and the Consumer Technology Association issued an official joint statement on the blackout, blaming the power outage on Tuesday's rain. "If our extension cord went over there we'd be out of power".

Even after the power was restored, companies had to go through the hassle of resetting devices on display - those connected wirelessly with each other, in particular.
