Business Celebrations can be held for special occasions:
- Grand openings
- Remodel, rebranding, or opening of a new or second location
- Milestone anniversaries
The primary benefit of a Business Celebration is to bring awareness to other members and the public.
Who should I invite?
- Friends, family and your whole staff
- Investors, contractors and associates
- Clients and neighboring businesses
What should we include at the event?
- Refreshments are nice touch but not required: you decide whether to serve cookies and coffee or a fully catered event
- Staff to showcase products or services
- Prize giveaways – capture business cards from attendees for follow up
The Chamber’s Role
What does the chamber provide?
- We bring the big scissors, ribbon, present a certificate and take photos
- An invitation is sent to the Chamber Business Celebration Committee for awareness (attendance is not guaranteed)
- Photos are posted on our Facebook page within one week of the event
