Ribbon Cuttings:

Are you opening a new business, or have you relocated or remodeled?  Let the Otsego-Plainwell Area Chamber of Commerce help you celebrate!

 A ribbon cutting ceremony is an important part of your overall marketing and advertising plan and is a great way to celebrate those who have supported you, and get the attention of local media! The ceremony also gives the business owner or manager a chance to say a few words to those gathered.

         What the Chamber will do:
  • Schedules your event, advertises the date, and provides a Facebook Event for you to share with guests you invite to the special occasion.
  • Brings the “BIG scissors” and ribbon and a framed certificate.
  • We will invite our Chamber Board Members, Chamber Members and local media.
  • We will take photos to share in print and social media.

    Suggestions for you:
  • We encourage you to conduct your own PR campaign to boost attendance. 
  • Consider inviting your business partners, financiers, contractors, employees, customers, friends, and family to be with you to celebrate this momentous occasion in your business’s history. 
  • Refreshments, drinks, door prizes, and decorations are optional and up to you. Many businesses add these extra touches when conducting a public grand opening in conjunction with the ribbon cutting. 
  • Decide who will cut the ribbon and who should be in the photo, and plan your remarks.
  • As a benefit of our Chamber of Commerce, we will come support your new business with a Ribbon Cutting event at NO COST.
