What's on center stage at the CES tech show?

What's on center stage at the CES tech show?”

CES organizers said it was an "isolated" outage and crews were working to restore power. The 2018 Consumer Electronics Show, more commonly known as CES, will feature thousands of new gadgets, but technology analysts are also expecting to see important advances in the fields of marketing, artificial intelligence, medicine, and transportation. "Does anyone have a battery pack?" wrote Endgadget, a technology news site.

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.

They go on to say "We encourage you to visit other open show areas" - however the largest hall, with the biggest companies in it remains in the dark.

The Las Vegas Convention Center, where CES is taking place, is now experiencing what event organizers are calling an "isolated power outage".

A preliminary assessment found that moisture from heavy rains on Tuesday had caused a "flashover" in one of the convention center's transformers, it said.

Amazon will have its own booth for Alexa at CES this year, and it's promising "exciting new products along with hundreds of vendors who have chosen to develop products based on Amazon voice technology".

Now in its 51st year, CES is expected to attract more than 180,000 visitors and will include over 4000 exhibitors across its nearly 241,000sqm of show floor.

CES will run from January 9th to 12th in Las Vegas. Ride hailing companies such as Uber and Lyft could not pick up passengers at the convention center, but operated from parking lots a block or more away.
