The guest list is due at 12 noon the day before the event.
Due to space limitations, it is suggested that you invite no more than 40 people to attend the Bell Ceremony. You are welcome to invite whomever. We request that, if necessary, since the event occurs in a television studio with live broadcasts, and potential hazards such as wiring/cameras, adults are available to remove children from the studio to the Lobby should they cry or misbehave. To that end, we ask that an adult accompany all persons under 18 years of age.
All guests, excepting minor children under the age of 18, should be prepared to present a viable state, local, or federal photo ID upon arrival. Once ID is shown, guests will be given a name badge and welcomed into the studio by security. For catering and security purposes, we require that you send NASDAQ the final guest list by noon the day before the open, including names, titles, and affiliations of all guests.
Throughout the day, there are approximately 100 live broadcasts from the NASDAQ studio. To avoid disturbing the broadcasts and studio equipment, please be mindful of the following: Turn off, or set to vibrate, all beepers and cell phones. Flash photography is not permitted. Keep voices to a normal tone; high-pitched sounds may reach the reporters microphones and interrupt their broadcast. Do not touch the studio wall. Stay behind the stanchions until directed otherwise by event planners.
Proper attire for the Bell Ceremony is business or business casual. Please, no jeans or sneakers.
Beverages will be set up in the studio approximately one hour before the ceremony begins.
