This year will be the 10th Anniversary of the Awards and we're looking forward to making it bigger and better than ever! Since we started on this incredible journey in 2010, our aim has been to shine a light on the region’s talented and successful family businesses and to play our part in creating a community of likeminded and supportive individuals.

The awards have grown year on year - a testament to the volume and calibre of brilliant family businesses in our region. We are proud to be in our 10th year - which is a real milestone - and we look forward to once again welcoming entries and meeting the family businesses that make the Midlands such a fantastic place to live and work.

The Launch event will take place on Thursday 2 May in Nottingham and we would love to see all our family business friends and supporters at the launch to celebrate with us. Entries open the following day and the 2019 Awards Ceremony & Dinner will be hosted at the King Power Stadium in Leicester on Thursday 7 November.

We look forward to seeing you all in 2019!
