There are just a few guidelines and pieces of information to remember as you plan your celebration.
- Please reserve the scissors at least two weeks in advance.
- Availability of the scissors is scheduled on a “first come, first served” basis. We also advise that you will need at least two weeks to do your own event planning (inviting customers/vendors/employees and getting your location ready to have a great event).
- We have very limited availability to attend 你的活动, but if you would like a Chamber presence (staff and volunteers) at your ribbon cutting, 请填写这张排班表.
- In order to schedule a Chamber presence at your ribbon cutting, your company should meet one of the following criteria:
- New – opened your doors within the past 12 months (not including any COVID shutdowns)
- Changed ownership or management within the past 6 months
- Moved to a new location or had a remodel/expansion at your present location
- In case of inclement weather (Omaha Public Schools close), our staff and volunteers will not be able to attend your scheduled event. If you choose to reschedule, we will work to find another date with you.
如果你喜欢社交, supporting local business and creating connections around the city, you would be a good fit for the Red Ribbon Crew.
Your Steps to Hosting a Successful Event.
To minimize the potential for conflict, avoid scheduling 你的活动 around holidays and other community events – this can reduce turnout for yours. Also consider how the time of day might affect your guest attendance and plan accordingly.
If you are counting on key dignitaries/civic leaders to speak or attend 你的活动, it is important you check their calendars in advance to confirm attendance before you finalize your invitation to others.
The following links can help you quickly avoid a scheduling issue:
You can also check local media outlets regarding area happenings; school districts/colleges to find information on their events/graduations; and even the 推荐几个体彩外围app的日历 避免其他大型事件冲突.
一般, the location of 你的活动 should be the location which is opening/re-opening or where the construction will take place. It is important to think through your venue and how you will safely accommodate those you invite. Make sure to give any neighbors and/or your landlord a heads up that there will be guests in and around your location.
If you plan to be outdoors, make a back-up plan for inclement weather. Also, be mindful of the fire code/occupancy regulations if you plan to have people inside a location.
Don’t forget about signage and parking. Clearly mark where your guests should park and where your building entrance is (or where you expect guests to gather outside).
你的盛大开幕, ribbon cutting or groundbreaking event is a great opportunity to bring people together and highlight your business.
这是 你的活动 so we encourage you to think about inviting anyone supportive of your business. 不是每个人都能参加, but this celebration can be as large or small as you’d like it to be.
These are some individuals you may wish to invite:
- Business partners/advisors like your banker, lawyer, accountant, contractors, etc.
- Organizations/non-profits you and/or your business supports
- Other dignitaries from key civic, professional, trade or business organizations
- Your employee’s family members, past employees, or others who are supportive
Based upon the size and scope of the event, you will need to make various arrangements. 这可以包括:
- Other rentals, such as a sound systems or chairs
Sending invitations to your guest list will be where most of 你的活动 attendance will come from. If you have invited the Chamber to participate in the event, this will include a staff person and about 6-8 volunteers from our Red Ribbon Crew.
You can also use Chamber resources to help spread the word to others in the community.
