Hosting a ribbon cutting? We'd love to be part of it!

We would be happy to help your business celebrate with a Grand Opening, Ribbon Cutting or Groundbreaking Ceremony. As you prepare, here are some tips and suggestions to help you execute an excellent event!

Guidelines:
  • To have a Greater Omaha Chamber representative present, your company must be a Chamber member. Visit OmahaChamber.org for additional information on membership.
  • Your company must meet one of the following qualifications:
    • Your business opened its doors within the last 12 months
    • Changed ownership or under new management in the last six months
    • Moved to a new location
    • Grand Re-Opening, remodel or expansion at its present location
  • We require you to schedule the ribbon cuttings at least two weeks in advance
  • A Chamber representative can attend according to the following specifications:
    • Available times include: 
      Mondays & Thursdays 4 PM - 5 PM with the ribbon cutting at 4:30 PM
      Tuesdays 8 AM - 9 AM with the ribbon cutting at 8:30 AM
      • Be advised we provide one ribbon cutting per day.  If your ribbon cutting conflicts with another ribbon cutting, we will contact you to reschedule.
      • Please note, Memorial Day through Labor Day we close at 1 p.m. on Friday afternoons
      • Ribbon cuttings will not be available between December 15th and January 15th
      • Should your event fall outside of these perimeters, you will be able to borrow the ribbon & scissors providing that the ribbon & scissors are picked up the day before the event and returned within the next business day 8am-4:30pm
  • Your company is required to fill out this survey before the Chamber can confirm your date – please allow 48-72 hours for processing
  • You are responsible for all external promotion of your event. We encourage you to post your event on Facebook and tag the Greater Omaha Chamber as co-host.
