Night into daytime: behind the scenes at CES through the lenses of Verge staff

Looking back on a very eventful CES

CES 2018 may not officially end until tomorrow (January 14th) but The Verge team has already packed our bags and left the warmth of Las Vegas for home. But as we unplugged our Ethernet cables, tried to find the many missing lens caps, and wondered what on earth we were going to do with what looked like a hundred bottles of water that had somehow accumulated in the fridge, we also took the time to pool some of our favorite behind-the-scenes photos taken during what has turned out to be a very eventful CES.
