FAIRFIELD - For a big expo, you want a big speaker. Former Bengal Anthony Munoz will address more than 100 business leaders this week at Butler County's biggest business expo.
The Fairfield Chamber of Commerce sponsors Showcase 2003 on Wednesday from 1 to 7 p.m. at Receptions Conference and Convention Center.
The luncheon featuring the National Football League Hall of Fame lineman begins at 11:30 a.m.
The theme this year is "Business Goes on Vacation."
Exhibitors are encouraged to decorate their booths with a favorite vacation spot in mind.
Business leaders and attendees also are invited to dress in vacation clothes.
"It's a great opportunity to have fun while growing your business," said Dan Goebel, chairman of the event's committee.
"A lively, colorful atmosphere really adds to networking success."
The "Taste of Fairfield" returns this year with more than 20 restaurants and caterers providing free food and beverages from 4 to 7 p.m.
The showcase is free, but the luncheon featuring Munoz is $25 for chamber members and $30 for nonmembers.
Event sponsors include Provident Bank, Cincinnati Bell, Adecco, Butler Tech, Miami University Hamilton, the city of Fairfield, First Financial Bank and Carnival Cruise Lines.
To make reservations for the luncheon, call the chamber at 881-5500.
