Meridian's Main Event Business and Industry Expo featured local businesses and what they have to offer customers.
Hundreds of people attended the expo at Bonita Lakes Mall Wednesday.
A highlight is the presentation of the Hartley Peavey Award for Entrepreneurial Excellence. This year's recipient is Jim McRae of Clearspan Corporation.
"It's certainly a great honor, certainly a pleasure and I appreciate it," said McRae. "The recognition is nice, but I do think we have quite a number of people in this town that deserve an award like this. I'm honored to be in the group that has already been awarded this."
