The rare blackout follows rains that had shuttered some events at the show, whose location in the Nevada desert usually offers visitors a respite from snow and frigid temperatures elsewhere in the country.

Practically everything at the CES was running on electricity and while the backup generator did kick in, which powered some booths, many areas were left in the dark.

The brightest minds in the world, but nobody thought to think that it can rain in Vegas... Despite this, many have noted that power outage and the weather were not the only problems of CES 2018.

The power failure followed heavy rain on Tuesday, which had forced Google to shut one of its booths located in the LVCC's auto park.

Even after the power was restored, companies had to go through the hassle of resetting devices on display - those connected wirelessly with each other, in particular.

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.

Attendees took to Twitter to share images and poke fun at the eerily darkened convention space. The glittering lights, the myriad laptops, the enormous TVs-they all went dark.

The Consumer Electronics Association, host of CES, acknowledged the outage.

TV maker LG's OLED Canyon display demo, with 246 OLED panels and more than 30 high-definition generators, took almost an hour to get back in full operation.

Someone is having a bad day! "This is a major buzz kill", one officer said as he strolled through the Central exhibit hall.

Many attendees admitted immediately that when the lights went off with a small pop, their first thought was terrorism, while others discussed the irony of a high-tech exposition knocked low by fundamental electrical technology. Some meeting rooms in South Hall also lost power.
