The More the Merrier…
While the Chamber invites Chamber Ambassadors, Board members and City officials, we encourage hosting member to invite clients, vendors, neighboring businesses, family and friends to ribbon cuttings. This is not only to have a large gathering for photo opportunities; it enables the business to showcase its assets to more people in the community.
Celebrate and Decorate…
Celebrate this great event by having festive décor—balloons and company signage not only draw attention to your business, it brings a celebratory spirit to the ceremony and makes it easier for attendees to locate your business on the day of event.
Give guests a brief tour of your company and explain its function. You never know what this can do for making business contacts in the future!
