Steps to a Successful Ribbon Cutting

Here are a few helpful hints:

+ Send personalized invitations to your business acquaintances – clients, vendors, friends, etc.

+ If you wish to have dignitaries present, make sure you invite them at least one month in advance. The Chamber will be happy to provide contact names and numbers; however, it is your responsibility to make the contacts.

+ Have a prepared program. This is an excellent opportunity to introduce your business to the community. Have your owner or manager talk about the company and/or take attendees on a tour of your facility.

+ Have your event catered. Attendees will stay longer and leave with a positive impression if they are entertained.

+ Offer guests a memento. Work with a specialty advertising company to design something unique and memorable. It’s a great way to keep your name before the business community.
