Buy Tickets

The CES Convention is a trade-only event, meaning it’s designed with industry professionals in mind. Admission is not officially open to the general public.

You must register and pay a fee before the start of the convention. Prices typically rise during the second half of December, so it pays to register now. Note that approved and credentialed media can always register for free on the CES website.

Where to Stay

The world’s biggest electronics convention in Las Vegas usually attracts 175,000 attendees in an average year. Due to the impact of COVID-19, organizers expect just over 100,000 in-person attendees in 2023.

To put the average attendance of the CES Convention into perspective, there are only 150,000 hotel rooms in Las Vegas.

CES has special agreements in place with several hotels in the city to reserve rooms for the convention. Book early to take advantage of the best rates for this Vegas electronics show. Hotels tend to sell out quickly, so you may need to resort to Airbnb or stay outside town.
