Main Event Set for April

It's almost time for the area's annual "Main Event" business expo.

It will be April 22 at the Lauderdale County Agricenter.

This year's theme is, “It's all about image.”

"The theme, we think, encompasses a larger number of retailers," said event chairman Tony Pompelia. "It brings in the retail sector as well as the education group as well as other businesses and industries, and we think that each year the Main Event gets larger. More businesses learn about it. They learn about the successes that come from that and the contacts that are made, so we believe we're gaining momentum and are looking forward to a bigger year."

More than 100 businesses from east Mississippi and west Alabama are expected to take part in this year's expo.

The deadline to register is April 2. For more information call 693-1306.
