What is a ribbon cutting?

A ribbon cutting ceremony is  a vital part of marketing your business. The Amarillo Hispanic Chamber of Commerce would be more than happy to help you celebrate a ribbon cutting ceremony.  

  • Has your company moved to a new location?
  • Does your company have new ownership?
  • Has your company joined the Hispanic Chamber?
  • Are you a new company in Amarillo?
  • Is your company celebrating an anniversary?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, congratulations you qualify for a ribbon cutting ceremony!

How to schedule a ribbon cutting?

Ribbon cuttings are coordinated and scheduled with the Executive Director. They can be scheduled Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM- 5:00 PM unless otherwise requested. Ribbon cuttings must be scheduled two weeks in advance to ensure the best turnout. 

What occurs at a Ribbon Cutting?

We start off a ribbon cutting ceremony by networking. Once we have everyone there that needs to be, we gather everyone to cut the ribbon. The Hispanic Chamber will provide the ribbon and the giant scissors (which are very sharp). Am de Amarillo Hispanic Newspaper will take a group picture to publish on their newspaper as well as our social media. After the photo, the member has a chance to inform everyone about the services they provide and thank everyone for attending. 

Do I have to provide food and beverages?

This is your event and it is completely up to you if you would like to provide food and beverages. You don’t have to if you wish not to. If you decide to, we encourage anything as simple as cookies and soft drinks or you can hire a caterer for light hors d’oeuvres. 

Who is invited to the Ribbon Cutting?

The Hispanic Chamber will invite our Bienvenidos Committee as well as our board members. We will promote your ribbon cutting on our weekly e-newsletter and everyone is welcomed to attend. We encourage you to invite customers, friends and family as well.
