What Is A Groundbreaking Ceremony

In construction, a groundbreaking ceremony has an important role to play in many cultures, and, in fact, the groundbreaking ceremony varies from country to country, but the deep meaning of this ceremony is the same.

Groundbreaking usually marks the beginning of any construction, and it is believed that by breaking the ground, we make a deposit to the earth to exchange for a strong and long-lasting foundation for any project.

In addition to the cultural meaning of groundbreaking, in this modern society, this ceremony is used to gather attention from the public to advertise the new construction. A groundbreaking ceremony is an irreplaceable part of any construction to make an announcement of what you are doing for any media team.

When scheduling your groundbreaking ceremony, there are multiple things that an event organizer needs to take into consideration. In some Asian countries, people could be superstitious when choosing a date to kick off something important, so it is necessary to confirm with the project manager to check whether the date is suitable to have a groundbreaking event or not. Then, you need to prepare your plan accordingly to that date. Moreover, dates and status should be included in your plan to keep track of your progress.

Invite guests
