Registration for LAGCOE 2019—taking place for the first time in New Orleans—is now open.
The event is set for Oct. 9-11 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. The expo is a three-day gathering that provides a platform for innovators in the oil and gas industry to showcase technology, equipment and services to local businesses.
LAGCOE announced the move of the 65-year-old event from its hometown of Lafayette to New Orleans late last summer. It is the second largest oil and gas industry trade show in the United States. Organizers say the move is to allow for strategic growth and increased industry participation in the biennial expo.
“The decision to host LAGCOE 2019 in New Orleans is rooted in our mission to cultivate economic growth in the energy industry by facilitating domestic and global business development,” says Greg Stutes, chairman of LAGCOE’s Board of Directors. “A significantly larger venue will accommodate more exhibitors and an even larger attendee base. This promotes growth, diversity, and develops even more connections among Louisiana’s energy industry.”
The organization provides a platform for the industry’s innovators to present cutting-edge technologies, equipment, and services for both onshore and offshore markets. Along with traditional exhibits, LAGCOE technical sessions feature industry leaders addressing current technologies, issues and trends from around the globe. At its peak, LAGCOE boasted representatives from 49 states, 40 countries and 17,000 attendees.
“The exciting and vibrant new location in New Orleans complements the many unique characteristics of LAGCOE,” Stutes says. “I believe this is a step forward in continuing to grow the Gulf Coast’s thriving oil and gas community whose exposure will now be recognized on a global scale.”
