Mark your calendars for local business event of the year

So, here’s a riddle: What has over 1,000 local residents and business decision-makers exchanging ideas with over 100 exhibitors, while enjoying great food, wine and beer from 15 local establishments? Answer: the 9th annual Business Expo, sponsored by the Rocky River Chamber of Commerce.

Every year, hundreds of local business owners and local residents mark their calendars awaiting the opportunity to network and learn from IT consultants and graphics firms, to furriers and cosmetic dentists, while enjoying a wide variety of food, beer and wine.
