Hopefully it won't be long before CES staff can identify the source of the issue and get the lights back on at the world's biggest technology conference. 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.
Heavy rainfall caused the rare power interruption, as Las Vegas experienced an unusually heavy downpour that also caused flooding in some of the booths at the CES, including Google's.
An hour or more later the power is still out, and security have been forced to shut the doors of the show preventing people accessing the LVCC and for those inside the show already they are blocking access to the Central Hall.
That was enough to cut the power Wednesday, even though the sun had come out by then.
"A preliminary assessment indicates that condensation from heavy rainfall caused a flashover on one of the facility's transformers", wrote a statement from the Las Vegas Visitor and Convention Authority, NV Energy and the Consumer Technology Association. The hashtag #CESBlackout was born.
The power outage wasn't the only mishap of the week.
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.
CES attracts about 180,000 attendees and roughly 4,000 exhibitors. Intel had a tongue-in-cheek announcement for a product called "Blackout". Any tech being shown off at the show that requires an outlet isn't operational. There's nothing more tragic than rows upon rows of blackened 4K HD TV displays. Some poked fun at the ironic loss of power in a gadget show.
Someone is having a bad day! "If our extension cord went over there we'd be out of power". My colleague @jeffersongraham is inside South Hall here and says there is still power.
CES attendees posted images on social media of the blackout, with one sharing a video of a woman playing a violin to entertain guests at the Intel booth.
