What type of event is right for you?
Ribbon Cutting: Formal event with a specific time for guests to be at your business. Owner and/or manager (public officials if present) greet guests and cut ribbon. Refreshments are optional. Can easily be combined with either a Grand Opening or Open House.
Grand Opening: Can be a casual or a formal event which lasts one to two hours. Guests visit your business during a set amount of time. Refreshments are optional.
Open House: A casual event which lasts several hours. Guests come and go informally to visit your business. Refreshments are optional.
