CES 2018 Statement on Limited Power Outage



Las Vegas, NV, January 10, 2018 - The following statement is attributed to the Las Vegas Visitor and Convention Authority, NV Energy and Consumer Technology Association (CTA), regarding the limited power outage in the Las Vegas Convention Center:

"Today at approximately 11:15 AM, the Central Hall and South Hall bridge meeting rooms at the Las Vegas Convention Center lost power. Power in the South Hall was restored within minutes, and power has now been fully restored to all areas. A preliminary assessment indicates that condensation from heavy rainfall caused a flashover on one of the facility's transformers. We are grateful to NV Energy for their swift assistance, to our customers and their clients for their patience and to the staff for ensuring the safety and security of all attendees and exhibitors."
