Sledgehammer Ceremonies: The New Twist on Groundbreakings

Posted by on 2/24/2020 to Blog Posts

Groundbreaking Ceremonies with ceremonial shovels have been a staple in the business world for as long as we can remember. Many anthropologists and archeologists believe these ceremonies have been around in one way or another since the dawn of time.

While groundbreakings have evolved over time, rarely is there a new twist that starts a major trend. However, over the last few years, we have seen people want a hard-hitting, impactful breaking at their event, symbolizing the break away from the norm and embracing change. That’s where this new twist comes into play, a Sledgehammer Ceremony.

What is a Sledgehammer Ceremony?

This is a twist on a Groundbreaking Ceremony if a current building is being demolished and a new one is going to be built in its place. A demolition ceremony marks the beginning of a new era for a company.
