How to Get Around CES 2021 Las Vegas

CES Las Vegas

Opening just in time for CES 2021 the 1.4-million-square foot expansion and renovation of the Las Vegas Convention Center will be an experience to be had. Understanding how to get from your hotel to the new Las Vegas Convention Center District (LVCCD) and how to get around CES 2021 venues and exhibit floor is important.

The West Hall expansion added 1.4 million square feet of space to the existing 3.2 million square foot Las Vegas Convention Center and this is bound to create a lot of confusion to new attendees and veteran attendees alike.

Having a plan and knowing which shuttle to board and where to board your shuttle is key to getting you from point A to B efficiently. The great news is that CES 2021 Shuttles are complementary and there are several options to get from your hotel to CES locations at both the Tech East, Tech West and Tech South. There are even ways to get around CES exhibit locations at the Las Vegas Convention Center District (LVCCD). Here's a rundown of transportation options from CES 2020. (CES 2021 Transportation option will be published as soon as they are released)

*CES 2021 Dates: January 6 - 9, 2021 (Wed-Sat)
