Industry Demand Leads to Rapid Growth of LAGCOE 2019 – Biennial expo expands to accommodate additional exhibitors

LAFAYETTE, LA – LAGCOE is pleased to announce the expansion of their technical exposition and conference, LAGCOE 2019. The oil and gas expo, held October 9-11, 2019 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, unites global industry leaders and showcases the latest innovations in energy.   

With five months remaining until the expo and conference opens, the space originally allocated for exhibitors in the convention center is nearly sold out. The size of the convention center allows for the opening of a second hall, which makes the exposition and technical conference more successful for everyone involved. This will be the largest indoor square footage for exhibiting in LAGCOE’s 64-year history. Two contributing factors leading to the influx of exhibitors include an uptick in the oil and gas economy and the growing excitement around the show’s move to New Orleans.

Greg Stutes with Completion Specialists, Inc. and current LAGCOE Chairman said, “Moving our technical exposition and conference to New Orleans at this point in LAGCOE’s history aligns with elements of our purpose, mission, and vision. With any change comes discomfort, but if you are done changing, you are done. A quote I learned from the late Phillip Lalande, former Vice President of Stone Energy in Lafayette and lastly as Managing partner of Flex Energy, is as follows: ‘Those who say it cannot be done are usually passed up by others doing it.’  It is exciting to see our LAGCOE community that is now so spread out continue to move forward and do what is necessary to embrace the change. The need to open more floor space to accommodate additional exhibitors is definitely a great sign towards a successful show.”
