FREE Ribbon Cuttings, Ground Breakings and Business After Hours Events!Are you celebrating the opening of a new business or the expansion/relocation of an existing business in Walker County or the surrounding area? Maybe youíve been in business for years and would like to reintroduce your organization to the community? Chamber Members are encouraged to celebrate these great milestones with ribbon cuttings, ground breakings or business after hours events. What are these events? They are ceremonial events of new, expanding, newly-renovated or relocated businesses. They can launch a businessís first day of business or can take place after the businessesí opening. Because these events mark a very important moment in the businessesí history, it is also a great photo opportunity. One that is later shared by the Chamber with local media, members and is also shared on the Chamberís website for all to see! Why hold one of these events? They are great to begin or increase your customer base, they familiarize the public with your physical location and your products/services, help to generate possible sales from attendees and more. What does your organization need to do to prepare for an event? Download a copy of the event form from the Chamberís website and pick your date and time, choose who will speak, decide on other event details to enhance your event, invite your customers, friends and family, and then host a successful event. Who attends ribbon cuttings? The Chamber will automatically invite the Chamberís membership, media and elected officials by sending them a notice two weeks before the event and a reminder one week before. The event will be listed on the Chamberís website calendar and will announce at Chamber functions leading up to the event. Those hosting events should also consider inviting business partners, financers, contractors, employees, customers, friends, and family to be with them as they celebrate this momentous occasion in your businessís history. What have other businesses done to make their events unique? Many conduct separate PR campaigns to obtain media attention, provide door prizes, have samples of products available, invite corporate staff from out of town, as well as offer complimentary appetizers and beverages. We are excited for your businessís success and value the opportunity to help you mark important occasions! Members of the Walker County Chamber of Commerce are offered all of these exiting opportunities for FREE.
