Power Goes Out at CES

Power in the North and Central lobbies of the Las Vegas Convention Center, which has CES yearly, has been out for near 60 minutes.

The central hall of the technology show experienced problems, with social media posts showing booths completely in the dark.

A voice eventually got on a loudspeaker and announced that organizers were investigating the incident.

This is the first such outage in recent memory at an event that is expected to bring more than 180,000 people to the Las Vegas Convention Center to check out the latest technological innovations. "We are working hard to resolve this and appreciate your patience", the account wrote. Parts of South and Central Halls, where numerous exhibitors are set up to showcase their products, have been thrown into darkness.

The Consumer Technology Association, which hosts CES, had no immediate comment on the issue. "After leaks in the ceiling yesterday this is not a good look", the tweet read beneath a video of the power outage.

CES sent out a message via Twitter at 11:49 a.m., acknowledging the outage and encouraging attendees to move to other halls.
