Example of Nasdaq-listed company at opening bell ceremony

It doesn't matter if it's a very seasoned CEO or a guest of the company - it's that 'wow' moment of seeing themselves on the seven-story tower. It's an emotional moment when they're here."

Tower and Marquee Visibility

During the hour of the Opening and Closing Bell, your company will get access to one hour of exclusive advertising on our Nasdaq Tower and Marquee. During this time, your company will have the option to display a :30 second (no audio) advertisement, which will alternate with a welcome message from Nasdaq and photos live from inside the studio.  

The Nasdaq creative team is available to assist in the production of your :30 second (no audio) video for your bell ceremony for a minimal production fee.

Photography & Videography

Weather permitting, following the ceremony, your group will be escorted outside for a series of pictures with the Nasdaq Tower as a backdrop. 

During the ceremony, a professional photographer will capture photographs of your group on and off stage. Guests may also take photos in the studio with their own cameras. However, the use of flash photography is not permitted as it can be disruptive to the live broadcast.

Five high-resolution images will be sent to your company contact within 24 hours. In addition, you will be sent a link to a photo album with all the photographs from the bell ceremony. We also provide a recording of the ceremony from the moment your Nasdaq Executive Host steps on stage to your team counting down the final moments until you open/close the markets.
