NASDAQ bell ceremonies & EVENTS | the MarketSite Studio is the location for honoring companies with market open ceremonies, new listings, and other events. | EVENTS LIST

The Studio

The guest list is due at 12 noon the day before the event.

Due to space limitations, we ask that you invite no more than 40 people to attend the Bell Ceremony. You are welcome to invite employees, family members, and friends – whomever you’d like to share with this celebration. We do request that as the event occurs in a television studio wherein live broadcasts take place, adults are available to remove children from the studio to the Lobby if necessary. To that end, we ask that an adult accompany all persons under 18 years of age.

All guests, with the exception of minors under the age of 18, should be prepared to present a viable state, local, or federal photo ID upon arrival. Once ID is presented, guests will be escorted into the studio by our security team. For catering and security purposes, we require that you send Nasdaq the final guest list by noon the day before the ceremony, including names, titles, and affiliations of all guests.

Studio Etiquette

Throughout the day, there are approximately 100 live broadcasts that take place within the Nasdaq studio. To avoid disturbing the broadcasts and studio equipment, please adhere to the following:

  • All phones must be turned off or set to vibrate once within the studio.
  • Flash photography is not permitted.
  • Keep voices to a normal tone; high-pitched sounds may reach the reporters microphones and interrupt their broadcast.
