Tips for a successful ceremony, along with ways we can assist you!

We encourage our members to celebrate their new business, new address, business expansion or anniversary. Having a ribbon cutting ceremony is a great way to gain exposure for your business.


  • Have you opened a new business
  • Have you relocated to a new address?
  • Have you expanded your operations?
  • Have you changed management?
  • Are you celebrating an anniversary?
