Request a Ribbon Cutting

The Tampa Bay Chamber is now offering our members two different Ribbon Cutting Celebration options. Complete the form below and choose the option that you’re celebrating.

Grand Opening Ribbon Cutting Celebrations

The Chamber offers this traditional Ribbon Cutting, hosted by our Ambassador group, for members to celebrate Grand Openings and business expansions. This service is provided at no additional charge to our members. Ribbon cutting services include Chamber participation from 2 to 3 staff members along with representation from some of our volunteer Ambassadors. The Chamber will provide our large, red ribbon and ceremonial oversized scissors and staff member to capture the photo. We will include the photo in our weekly eView newsletter, reaching a readership of over 12,000 business professionals.

Grand Opening Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies are held Monday – Friday from 8:00am – 5:00pm. If you wish to hold your Ribbon Cutting Ceremony outside of normal business hours, you may check out our ceremonial oversized scissors as available.
