Safety and Security at CES

Your safety and security is important to us. For CES 2019, we continue to implement enhanced security measures. Here is what you can expect and should prepare for as you plan your CES experience.

New Registration Requirements

  • A unique, verifiable email address is required for each registrant.
  • CES badges will now include a photo ID for attendees and media. This feature is optional for exhibitors.
  • Date of birth will again be required in line with guidance from federal law enforcement and industry best practices.
  • You must present a government-issued photo ID to pick up your badge on-site.

Tips to Speed Up Your Entrance

To speed entrance at all venues, we strongly encourage everyone to

  • Register online
  • Pick up your badge at the airport or select hotels before arriving at the show.
  • Leave luggage, large bags and bulky clothing at your hotel.
  • Plan ahead. Allow extra time to enter show venues and arrive at meetings and events.


On-site Security Measures

Bag Search and Restrictions

We will have bag search at the entrance to all show venues. All bags are subject to search and metal wand screening. In addition

  • Attendees may carry two small bags, each smaller than 12”x17”x6” into show venues.

  • Attendees are encouraged to consider their bag type and use clear bags (mesh, plastic, vinyl, etc.) to expedite entry.

  • Rolling bags of any size are prohibited including luggage, carry-ons, laptop and computer bags, and rolling luggage carts.

For Media

Media with an official media badge are permitted to hand-carry equipment onto show premises in excess of our two-bag restriction. This equipment is subject to search and tagged as approved for entry. 

For Exhibitors

Exhibitors are permitted to bring product and display material onto CES show premises in excess of our two-bag restriction, beginning Jan. 7 and prior to 8 AM on show days Jan. 8-11.

Exhibitor freight is also subject to search at the advance warehouse marshalling yard and at show venues.

Bag-Check Facilities

We encourage you to leave your bags at your hotel. However, we do offer bag-check facilities:

  • LVCC Central Plaza, next to the main registration tent
  • Sands Level 1 Lobby
  • Venetian Ballroom Foyer

Highly Visible Law Enforcement Presence

At CES 2019, you will notice a more highly visible law enforcement presence throughout the show and at all venues. Law enforcement officers and K9 (dog) units will be at both the entrances to the venues and on the exhibit floor. We will be performing random security checks on show premises.

Vehicle Deterrence Measures

As an enhanced security measure, we are implementing a vehicle deterrence plan in and around key venues. Please use the areas allocated as pedestrian walkways as you enter show venues.

Finally, if you see something suspicious, please report it to CES either via the LiveSafe app or via the security phone numbers printed on the back of your CES badge. You can also ask any CES staff member or venue or security personnel.

Also, please make sure that you family and friends know how to reach you in the case of emergency.
