Opening ceremonies are mostly to welcome the public to a new event, space or building. The Event Management behind opening ceremonies is critical especially when a convention of this magnitude may run for several days, which is likely when the organisers need to welcome and address the whole audience.
Political gatherings, sporting conventions and events use opening ceremonies to set the tone for the event in future; opening ceremonies are great for business owners to help kickstart their business or promote their product launch with a boom.
Opening ceremonies when used for business functions will help draw attention to products and services by blending informative pieces and entertainment relevant to the business. Strong grand opening ceremonies are equally about creating discussion about the business as fostering long-term opportunities.
Generally Opening ceremonies involve entertainment and require a experienced MC who can hold the audiences attention.
