CES 2018 Had a Blackout and The Tweets Are Hilarious

14 January, 2018, 17:17 | Author: Cecil Buchanan

On the second day of CES 2018, the Las Vegas Convention Center lost power for almost two hours. Access will be limited until power is fully restored.

In a joint statement the Las Vegas Visitor and Convention Authority, NV Energy and Consumer Technology Association (CTA), said condensation from yesterday's rain was what led to the outage.

The power failure followed heavy rain on Tuesday, which had forced Google to shut one of its booths located in the LVCC's vehicle park. 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. The power outage was caused by heavy rainfall, disrupting one of this year's biggest and most important technology-focused events.

After about an hour, only the south and north halls in the plaza were without power. Thanks for your continued patience.

LAS VEGAS-On the first day of CES, Tuesday, a record 1.33 inches of rain fell, the wettest one-day downpour since the Weather Service began keeping records in 1937. The hashtag #CESBlackout was born.

Some publicists even tried to exploit the power outage.

Exhibitors have not yet put forward any complaints concerning damages caused by the power outage, nor has the show organizer officially mentioned a plan regarding the mishap. Both large and smaller ones rely on the annual trade show to ink deals that will translate to cash months in the future; the blackout disrupted some of the product demos, panels and meetings key to those deals.

Some freakish things are happening at the Consumer Electronics Show, better known as CES, this year.

And in a sign of the huge energy draw from the tech show, once the crowds were let back in, the return to full, blazing electronic glory was slow. The power went out in the central hall of #CES2018!

Earlier today, CES 2018 experienced a blackout that lasted about two hours, leaving exhibitors and attendees literally in the dark.
