LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The international Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is fast approaching. The first day of the four-day electronics convention is Jan. 7.
McCarran International Airport announced in a tweet on Twitter Friday morning that it is once again an official badge pickup location. When show exhibitors and general attendees arrive in Las Vegas by air, they can pick up their badge before leaving the airport. It’s open until midnight.
CES Badge pickup locations Friday, Jan. 3:
- Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC), Central Plaza, main registration tent for exhibitors still needing to register. (12 p.m. to 5 p.m)
- McCarran International Airport, Baggage Claim, Terminal 1 (12 p.m. to 12 a.m midnight) Badge pickup for attendees and exhibitors.
Starting Jan. 3 from noon until 5 p.m., exhibitors who still need to register for the annual electronics show can do so at the Las Vegas Convention Center’s Central Plaza main registration tent. Visit the CES website for all pickup locations.
8 News NOW Live Producer, Rocky Nash, first attempted to pick up her badge at LVCC, but received conflicting information as to where parking was for badge pickup. Although the registration tent was highly visible, finding parking to walk back to it was difficult.
McCarran International Airport’s badge pickup though only took minutes. Airport Terminal 1 short-term parking was available at $2.00 for up to an hour. There was no wait at the badge pickup counter near baggage claim and plenty of friendly staff to assist with questions.
CES badge pickup for general attendees is available Friday until midnight at the airport’s Terminal 1 baggage claim and Terminal 3 on level zero.
An important tip, remember to bring a copy of your CES registration confirmation email and a government-issued photo ID to the badge pickup location or you will not be able to secure a badge.
