Louisiana Gulf Coast Oil Exposition (LAGCOE) 2013 welcomed more than 17,000 attendees from 47 states and 43 countries to the Cajundome & Convention Center in Lafayette, La., October 22 - 24. The record breaking number of attendees viewed 416 exhibits and participated in nine technical presentations and eight international presentations over the three day period.
Angela Cring, LAGCOE executive director, said, "We were very happy to welcome a record breaking crowd to LAGCOE 2013. The increased number of exhibitors, attendees, number of countries represented and presentation participation are all due to the hundreds of volunteers and community partners who put forth great effort to produce a tremendous show for our visitors. Everyone's hard work has paid off and helped us to achieve one of our main goals which is the promotion of the oil and gas industry."
Kirby Arceneaux, Environmental Drilling Solutions director and LAGCOE chairman, commented, "The show was great, and I want to thank our staff and volunteers for their hard work which pleased many people. Operations were smooth, and a new, vibrant energy was noticeable from start to finish."
