In response to LAGCOE’s announcement​ that the 2019 expo will be held in New Orleans, Mayor-President Joel Robideaux stated:

“Lafayette’s reputation as an innovative, entrepreneurial and wildcatter community took hold at the dawn of the oil and gas boom. Today, Lafayette maintains a strong service sector presence, produces an unequaled amount of petroleum engineering graduates and is home to an impressive number of oil and gas related innovations and patents. While LAGCOE will make its 2019 appearance in New Orleans, Lafayette will continue to serve as a hub for the oil and gas industry and an important partner for LAGCOE and its members.”
