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.
