Following Postponements, LALExpo Organizers Report Successful Event

CALI, Colombia — Organizers of the 2022 LALExpo are reporting a successful event with nearly 5,200 attendees and 95 sponsors.

The eighth edition of LALExpo unspooled July 23-26; the show was previously postponed after twice being forced to relocate due to political and media pressure and a moral panic campaign stoked by religiously motivated groups.

"We feel completely proud and very excited after the overwhelming success of LALExpo 2022. All that remains for us to say to our attendees and sponsors is: Thank you! Thank you very much for the loyalty and trust in our event," noted the organizers in a statement today.

"It was long months of hard work, during which we had to overcome different obstacles," they said. "However, it was all worth it because we achieved our goal: for LALExpo 2022 to be the most memorable edition throughout our history. Our more than 30 presentations and panels were very well received by 93% of the attendees."

"In our eighth edition, we had the support of the Mayor's Office of Cali and its different entities," the statement said, as well as Migración Colombia and "some senators, which demonstrates the legality and good practices that we promote within the industry."

LALExpo also drew the support of such influencers as Aida Cortes, Daiky Gamboa and Karen Sevillano. Performing artists Kevin Roldán, Dálmata, Luigi 21 Plus and DJ Marcela Reyes helped to raise the profile of the event on social media.

"Finally, we say goodbye, but not before saying that we deeply regret that in Colombia the necessary conditions and guarantees do not exist so that our event can continue to take place," the organizers said. "However, we know that we have the support of the entire industry; therefore, we will soon share more details about the projects that we will carry out in the rest of Latin America. Expect more news from us soon."
