Transform LAGCOE Begins
The LAGCOE organization has partnered with Maritz Global Events to undergo a five-month study into the current format and elements of past LAGCOE technical expositions and conferences. Additionally, the LAGCOE Board of Directors will seek the guidance of industry leaders to help elevate the current format to better meet the changing needs of the energy industry, cater the trade show experience to best serve our stakeholders, and review new, innovative ideas for future events. 

We appreciate the support of all of LAGCOE's longtime supporters, especially during this time of transition and change. Stay tuned to our website and newsletters for updates as Transform LAGCOE unfolds over the next few months!
