LAFAYETTE, La., – LAGCOE, a nonprofit energy industry organization focused on promoting commerce and connecting people through educational programs and a technical exposition and conference, announced today it will host LAGCOE 2019 in New Orleans, Louisiana at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. The move allows strategic growth for the organization 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.”
Making the move of LAGCOE 2019 to the city of New Orleans gives us the opportunity to reach both domestic and international audiences. Coupling with the culture and business community of New Orleans would not only attract returning companies, but expand participation opportunities from new companies as well.
The LAGCOE organization remains committed to Lafayette and South Louisiana, specifically our volunteers, sponsors, exhibitors, and partners with whom we have had relationships with for decades. The New Orleans location expands the commerce reach for Louisiana to the entire upstream and midstream sectors for both the onshore and offshore industry, which will directly impact the awareness of these companies in the global market.
Angela Cring, LAGCOE Executive Director also commented, “For the past 63 years, LAGCOE has experienced countless opportunities to promote the greater global energy industry; the move to New Orleans will only continue the momentum and benefit the future of our organization.”
