CORTLAND, N.Y. — A new mobile app will help local residents and visitors to Cortland County find out more about what's happening in our local area.

The app dubbed Experience Cortland offers access to information on local business products and services, community resources, and social gatherings.

The Cortland County Convention & Visitors' Bureau partnered with Leadership Cortland to create the app that can also be used by visitors to the area who are looking for accommodations, attractions and events.

“Most of our website traffic is mobile based, so having a smartphone app that can get this kind of information to travelers faster is key,” said Megan Eves, Social Media Marketing Specialist at the Cortland County Convention & Visitors Bureau. “Apps take time and money but are a growing necessity for information access in today’s world. We were excited to partner with the Leadership Cortland team to make this idea a reality.” 

The Visitors' Bureau also worked with the Cortland County Chamber of Commerce and City of Cortland Mayor Brian Tobin.

Ithaca-based app developer Abstract Elemental was responsible for creating and developing the app, which is available on the Apple Store and Google Play.
