Ribbon Cuttings and Groundbreakings

Promote your good news
Greater Fort Wayne Inc.'s ribbon cutting/groundbreaking package is available only to GFW investors. GFW agrees to provide the following promotion of your ceremony as part of the $200 package:
  • Contact the Fort Wayne Mayor's office or the Allen County Commissioner's office to seek a representative to attend your event. (GFW cannot guarantee a specific representative will attend, nor will be held responsible in case of failure to attend.)

  • Send out a media alert to local TV, radio and newspaper news departments to make them aware of your ceremony. (Again, GFW cannot guarantee media coverage.)

  • Place your event on GFW's events calendar.

  • Furnish ribbon and our giant pair of scissors for your ribbon cutting or up to a dozen golden shovels for your groundbreaking.

  • Provide a GFW photographer to take photos.

  • Afterward, mention your event with a photo on GFW website.

  • Make information and photos available to local media, and to you and your staff, too.

Please contact GFW at least three weeks before your event. And please fill out every space in the form; better details make for a better press release. If a space doesn't apply, note it as "n/a."

These events can be scheduled only during normal business hours: 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Friday, excepting holidays. 

GFW will contact public officials and the media after payment is received.
