A multi-day music event is focusing on supporting local businesses by launching a new mobile app to help spotlight the community.
97 South Song Sessions’ app will provide "a variety of benefits to app users," including a preferred vendors list. The preferred vendors program offers area businesses an opportunity to market their product and services at a slightly discounted rate.
In support of COVID-19 recovery, the PVP costs in 2021 will be waived. Businesses interested in being considered for the preferred vendor program can contact: [email protected]
