LACPEC 2014 is an ideal venue to showcase your company's latest technological accomplishments, products, and services. Through exposure to regional oil and gas providers, regional energy officials, and international executives,  you can sharpen your business strategy and leverage your goals.

This year's conference promises to be a remarkable and beneficial three days for all who attend.
