No expo in the world relies on power more than CES so it was particularly embarrassing when it was plunged into darkness yesterday. The lights – and everything else – were off for two hours. Attendees were evacuated.
The Las Vegas Convention Center central hall went dark at around 11:20 local time (19:20 GMT). Organisers blamed an earlier downpour.
Given how much vendors pay for booths, it will certainly add a twist to the rebooking conversations.
