With five months remaining until the expo and conference opens, the space originally allocated for exhibitors in the convention centre is nearly sold out. The size of the convention centre 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.”
