Setting up for CES

LAS VEGAS -- All 3,200,000 square feet of the Las Vegas Convention Center is a busy place today, as thousands of workers tear open boxes, unwrap palettes and wire up the booths for the start of CES 2014.

Ladders are stacked along walkways where soon thousands of people will be hurrying by. Overhead, cranes move about, with workers drilling, sawing, and hammering away as the final hours for preparation are upon us.

Plenty of action inside the LVCC

There's plenty of action inside the LVCC, where it feels a bit dangerous to navigate narrow walkways strewn with plastic wrap and boxes as workers finish setting up.

Endless hallways

As I walk around the preshow preparations, I'm reminded just how big the LVCC is. At more than 3 million square feet, you can walk for 10 minutes in one direction and still be in the middle of nowhere.

Hanging high

It seems like every inch of the convention center is being used. From floor to ceiling, it's all about standing out at CES.

Instant city

CES feels a bit like a pop-up city, but at the moment it's only halfway built.
