Tips for Planning a Successful Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

 

What YOU should do:

1. Reserve a date and time on The Colony Chamber of Commerce’s online calendar. Please contact jennifer@thecolonychamber.org at least four weeks in advance of your desired date.  You may schedule your Ribbon Cutting on a Tuesday at 10:00 amTuesday at 12:00 pm OR on a Thursday at 5 pm.  Scheduling is subject to availability and requires at least four weeks notice.

2. Choose a location.  Your location!  This may seem obvious for most businesses, however, if your business does not have a physical office presence in The Colony or surrounding area, you may schedule to hold your Ribbon Cutting at Comerica Bank (our remote office location) on a Tuesday at 10 am, Tuesday at 12 pm OR on a Thursday at 5:00 pm.

3. Organize your “frills”. Here are some tips:

A. Refreshments are not required, but they are always well received.

B. Arrange for staff members to give tours of your business to your guests if your facility warrants.

C. Display and demonstrate your products and/or services.

D. Consider the message you want your guests to leave with. This is your chance to inform them about your services and products. Make the most of the opportunity!

4. Notify the Chamber of any special arrangements. Do you want a Chamber representative to speak at your event?  Do you have door prizes or giveaways you’d like us to promote?  Let us know!

5. Send special invitations. The Chamber will market your ribbon cutting to the Chamber membership, however, we strongly encourage your to personally invite staff, family, friends, clients and potential clients to attend.
