  • CES 2016 has officially banned Hoverboards from the event

CES representatives have confirmed according to their policy ‘wheeled transport devices’ are not allowed.

Hoverboards are possibly the most exploding technology of 2015. For attendees arriving at a tech expo on hoverboards, it would have been innovation personified.

However according to a CES policy, the use of Hoverboards at the event is banned. Hoverboards are officially not allowed on site at the event.

The CES 2016 On-Site Logistics page says: "Wheeled transport devices (with or without motors) are not permitted at any CES venue. This includes hoverboards, skateboards, uniwheels and all similar products."

According to the spokesperson all wheeled transport devices with or without motors are banned. The policy applies to Segways, hoverboards, skateboards, uniwheels and all similar products.

Only for people with disabilities will be the use of Segway allowed at the venue. Segways are permitted at the LVCC and Sands/Venetian for ADA use only. They are not permitted at any other show venue for any purpose. Additionally transport devices such will be available for rent at the venue.

The devices for rent are Sands/Venetian, scooters and wheelchairs. Attendees need not panic as adequate provision has been provided. The banning of hoverboards is not a new policy.

The policy has been in effect for some years at the CES event. Although attendees will not be able to bring their own transport devices a lot of them will be on exhibit. Ride able gadgets are expected to have a big presence on the CES show 2016.

Other on site logistics for the event has also been released on the official CES website. Details on bringing cameras and the coat checking area have been provided on the site. The ban on hoverboards was also found in the on-site logistics.

The CES 2016 will take place on January 6-9, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Most announcements will be made ahead of the CES opening in early January. Our CES 2016 coverage is already picking up. Check out the latest CES 2016 News.
