Because ceremonial events are events planned by the business, there are no set rules. To make your event successful, you may carefully consider the following:

  • You should market and promote your event to the entire community. Invite everyone you know! Invite your family, friends, past, current, and potential customers, business associates (including your accountant, banker, and landlord/property owner), suppliers, your employees, the media, neighboring businesses, and government officials.
  • Take pictures at the event and publish a photo in your social media, website or broadcast emails
  • Utilize the Chamber on-line directory to find event planners, media companies, promotional vendors, party rental supplies, or digital marketing consultants.  

  • IMPORTANT: If you are using a banner or flag, City Permits or Landlord Approval may be required. 
  • If you are borrowing equipment, please pick it up and return on the same day. Some items are in high demand
  • The Chamber does not provide food or event planning services
  • The Chamber does not guarantee attendance or media coverage for events
  • Attendance at your event by Chamber members varies greatly depending on types of business, date, time, location, food offerings, etc.
  • Chamber equipment, calendar listing, e-newsletter listing is for members only
  • Please review the Chamber's tip sheet for planning a successful event. You are strongly recommended to market your event to customers, vendors, friends, business associates, etc.  
  • Shop Surprise: The program is only available to Surprise businesses, through a generous contribution from the City of Surprise. The Chamber recommends a new business create a "Loss Leader" coupon.  A loss leader is a product or service at a price that is not profitable but is sold or offered in order to attract new customers or to sell additional products and services to those customers. This is a common practice when a business first enters a market. Essentially, a loss leader introduces new customers to a service or product in the hope of building a customer base and securing future recurring revenue.
  • You will be contacted by a Chamber representative to confirm the details of your event
