CES 2017 Implementing Advanced Security Measures

CES 2017 will feature advanced security measures at it expects more than 165,000 attendees to flock to Las Vegas.


The Consumer Technology Association (CTA), owner and producer of CES, will continue to implement advanced security measures at the upcoming CES 2017 to maximize the safety of all attendees. Returning to Las Vegas January 5-8, CES 2017 will celebrate 50 years as the global stage for innovation.

CES expects more than 165,000 in attendance at CES 2017.

CTA is working closely with law enforcement officials at all levels to maximize security on-site at CES 2017. This year’s security measures include bag restrictions and metal detectors. Only two bags, each smaller than 12” x 17” x 6”, may be brought into official show venues. Rolling bags of any size will not be permitted on the show floor.

While all attendees will be subject to metal detector screening upon entering show premises, CTA will conduct searches at specific points to ensure quick and easy access to exhibit halls and reduce the number of times attendees have to go through security. For efficient entry on-site, all attendees must have an official CES badge and government-issued photo ID before entering CES show venues.
