WEST ALFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - About 100 businesses from the Greater Lafayette area gathered Thursday for the 2013 Business Expo.
Greater Lafayette Commerce hosted the annual event at Four Points by Sheraton.
It was an opportunity for businesses to network, create new customers and perhaps check out the competition.
One business owner said seeing his competitors at the expo reassures him the Lafayette economy is alive and well.
"Competition is good. We don't expect to get every job in. I sure they don't expect that either, but the idea is that we show our wares here. Show people what we can do. Hopefully there are times they select us as their architect," said Rob Galbraith of Keystone Architecture.
News 18 had a booth at the expo. Some of our on-air talent got a chance to talk to viewers and get feedback.
