Organising a successful Grand Opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony takes skill and patience to bring everything together; we have got this FREE Grand Opening Ceremony Event Guide together to help you organise a brilliant grand opening event.

  • Decide who’s in charge of your Grand Opening – perhaps it’s you!
  • Delegate responsibilities – A contact for RSVPs, Who will ‘say a few words at the Grand Opening event, Greeters to show your guests the way, a VIP Ceremonial co-coordinator, Tour guides of your new Grand Opening facility and also a team to clean up
  • Budget – Establish the Grand Opening budget. Remember, ordering items early always saves money on delivery, etc.
  • Plan the Grand Opening Day activities.
  • Select a date and time for your grand opening, and think about the weather – should you have a reserved day, or can you provide cover from the rain?
  • Book the professionals – Caterers, photographers, local press, florists, entertainers, musicians, and sound systems.
  • Room Layout – Consider tables, chairs, stanchions, and podiums, and organise table covers, napkins, crockery, and cutlery.
  • Ribbons & Scissors – Do you want your ribbon printed? Order giant ceremonial scissors for the day.
  • Stanchions & Bows – Make your day look truly professional with brightly coloured bows and stanchions to attach your cutting ribbon.
  • Prepare a press release.
  • Organise any visual aids for the speaker
  • Organise printed balloons, balloon nets and helium.
  • Consider a red carpet for your VIP’s
  • Consider a gift for your guests with a small souvenir. Perhaps personalised chocolate, or wrap your gift with personalised ribbon to make it extra special.
  • Don’t forget to say thank you to all those who helped you.
