The deadline is approaching for business owners to apply for Business Connect.

With Super Bowl LIII happening February 3, 2019 in Atlanta, members of the host committee and the National Football League created “Business Connect” – a program designed to help identify and connect certified, diverse, and qualified businesses to compete for contracting opportunities associated with the big game.

“It’s a vender supplier program,” says Chief Operating Officer for the Atlanta Super Bowl Host Committee Brett Daniels. “You have a lot of companies that come in to support the Super Bowl and they in turn rely on the local business community to help provide a lot of the goods and services needed for the Super Bowl.”

Tuesday May 15 is the cutoff to apply for the program - Business Connect.
