The History of LAGCOE's Technical Expositions & Conferences
One of the world's pioneer oil and gas industry expositions, LAGCOE, now in its 64th year, was established in 1955 and is home to thousands of energy industry companies with a global impact.
LAGCOE began with an unofficial "exposition" which took place in the parking lot of the Petroleum Club of Lafayette in 1953. The first true LAGCOE
exposition happened two years after the parking lot show, at Lafayette, La.'s Blackham Coliseum with an exhibitors list that included about
130 exhibitors from 10 states, including Texas, California, New York, and of course, Louisiana.
The exposition continued to grow, eventually outgrowing the space at the Blackham Coliseum. In 1995, LAGCOE moved to The Cajundome & Convention
Center where it evolved into the first-class technical exposition & conference it has become today. Although the face and interests
of LAGCOE have changed as the industry has, many traditions still hold true. To learn more about LAGCOE's rich history, visit our LAGCOE History page.
LAGCOE continues to strengthen its long-standing history of commitment to promote the growth of the energy industry. LAGCOE exhibits and technical
presentations are carefully crafted each exposition to support bold, innovative approaches in the global quest for energy.
