Public, proprietors connect at Mega-Business showcase in Greenbrier Co.

FAIRLEA, W. Va (WVVA)-- Area businesses get a chance to show off their best at the mega-Business Showcase at the fairgrounds in Fairlea.

More than 90 vendors, from wineries to local restaurants-- even WVVA-- set up tables at the event to hand out free merchandise and network.

Organizers say it's a great way for the public to see what's new out there, and for proprietors to meet new people.

They hope its growing popularity means good things for the business climate in the area.

"I think this year alone we've had approximately 10 new vendors at the event," said Alyson Dotson, Vice President of the board of the Chamber of Commerce.

"I think when you have 95 vendors in what we would consider a rural area, I think it shows a lot of hope and prospect for this community."

It's estimated that just under a thousand people came to the showcase.  There was also a career fair for vendors to connect with area students earlier this morning.
