The Moore Chamber prides itself on getting additional visibility for its members with ribbon cuttings, grand openings, and milestone celebrations.
As a benefit of chamber membership, a ribbon cutting is a ceremonial opening of a business that is brand-new, newly-renovated/relocated, or earmarking an anniversary. It can inaugurate an organization’s first day of business or it can take place weeks after a business's soft opening.
Because the ribbon cutting marks a very significant moment in the business’ history, this is also a great photo opportunity. The ceremony gives the business owner or manager a chance to say a few words to those who have gathered to support their event. Business owners have used this time to publicly thank their financial backers, their employees, their friends, and/or their business partners. They also take the opportunity to talk about what their business does.
The Chamber also has an option for non-brick-and-mortar businesses called the Ribbon Palooza. These quarterly events provide a platform for those business formats to showcase their businesses in the same manner as if they were hosting it at an office or storefront.
Hosting more than 75 ribbon cuttings a year is proof that businesses are coming to Moore for a reason and find value in their membership to the Moore Chamber of Commerce.
