Celebrations are an important aspect of your business, and can also be a great marketing tool. The Urbana Business Association offers you special ways to make your celebration a memorable one. Whether you're a brand new business, opening a new location, or achieving a significant milestone, a ribbon cutting ceremony is the perfect way to celebrate the occasion.

When you schedule a ribbon cutting with the UBA, we invite the Mayor of Urbana, City of Urbana staff, the UBA Board, and UBA members. We promote the event through the our weekly newsletter and send out media releases. We will provide the ribbon and scissors on the day of the event, and the ribbon will be signed by everyone attending the ceremony and given to you as a keepsake from the event.

It is also highly recommended that you also plan a celebration to coincide with the ribbon cutting ceremony.  This celebration can be an event or activity where you invite friends, family, employees, and potential clientele, provide complimentary treats and beverages, and highlight the products/services that you offer.  If you would like assistance in developing ideas for your ribbon cutting celebration, UBA will provide a complimentary 30 min consultation for your business.  UBA would also love to market, plan and execute your ribbon cutting celebration! For more information on either of these services, please contact Paris Blalock, executive director, at paris@urbanabusiness.com or 217-344-3872.
