Ribbon Cuttings

Thank you for letting us celebrate your important occasion with a ribbon cutting.  Please send us your preferred date at your earliest convenience.  We look forward to celebrating this special event with you and your business.

RIBBON CUTTING SCHEDULE

Ribbon cuttings are booked no less than (2) weeks in advance and are scheduled on Monday-Thursday before 5 pm and Friday before 3 pm.

MEMBER RIBBON CUTTING BENEFITS

  • Once the logistics for the ribbon cutting are set, we contact the Mayor of Geneva, Alderman, board, staff, and ambassadors. (The mayor makes every effort to attend ribbon cuttings, however we cannot guarantee attendance)
  • Your ribbon cutting is posted on the Chamber website on our events calendar. It is emailed to membership through our weekly email and posted on social media the day of the event.  We will add it to our newsletter if it has been scheduled before newsletter deadline.
  • We provide the BIG scissors and “official” ribbon.
  • On anniversaries, we provide confetti cannons.
  • Geneva Chamber of Commerce takes photos and videos to post on social media. Our Communication Director sends a press release to our major press contacts regarding the event.
