Things to Keep in Mind When Considering a Ribbon Cutting
Preparing for Your Ribbon Cutting

• While we will invite local media to your Ribbon Cutting, a great way to get added promotion is by utilizing the customizable media kit provided to you upon the scheduling of your ceremony. 


• The Chamber will post your Ribbon Cutting on our website as a Chamber event. This will ensure that we promote it via our website and weekly newsletters.


• If you chose, you can share the event on social media, the homepage of your website, in email blasts and more.


• The best spot to cut the ribbon is in front of an elevated sign, door or wall that has your company name or logo. This makes for a great photo opportunity. 


• Think about who you would like to be in the photo with you. The business owner or manager will be the person who actually holds the scissors and cuts the ribbon. You may also want to include family members, staff and Chamber members. Chamber Ambassadors will be in attendance to hold the ribbon so your staff can be front and center.


• Some businesses like to provide refreshments and a tour for their guests. This is not a requirement, but again, it can be a nice touch. Should you choose to provide refreshments, consider the time of day - if morning or afternoon, we suggest keeping it light, as many folks will need to head back to the office.
