Hundreds of folks in the local business community met in Meridian Friday morning, as part of the city's annual business day. 

Organizers say it's a huge networking event. More than 250 people attended with a focus on creating a positive culture in business.

"When we serve somebody, are we going to be the ones that make a difference, or do we just do our job?" said organizer Brandon Wright. "And I think the businesses that are out there, that are here today, they're looking for that difference in how to do it."

Attendees also participated in workshops focused on education, networking and business growth, and listened to a variety of guest speakers.

Organized in 2009, this was the 10th Meridian Business Day event hosted by the city.
