New Media Partnership with The Business Desk!

We are delighted to be working with a team that shares our ultimate goal - to showcase the range, diversity and talents of the Midlands family business sector, and its contribution to the region’s economy and vibrancy

Commenting on the Awards’ media partnership with The Business Desk, Charlotte Perkins, Group MD of The Wilson Organisation, said: “The Awards’ team is looking to bring a fresh dimension and energy to the Awards this year. The Awards are now well established in the region and winning a Midlands Family Business Award is considered one of the most prestigious and greatest accolades by each of our titleholders and finalists over the last eight years.

“Partnering with The Business Desk delivers an exciting new platform from which we can build on this reputation, and also enables the Awards to develop the extensive community of family businesses, their ambassadors, advisers and supporters, to gain increased awareness and traction across the region by working alongside one of the region’s fastest growing business media organisations.

Sam Metcalf, editor of The Business Desk in the East Midlands, added: "Family businesses are the backbone of the Midlands and vital in the continuing economic progress of the region. With this in mind, TheBusinessDesk.com is delighted to become media partner to the Midlands Family Business Awards - now one of the most well-established and prestigious events of its kind in the region.

"TheBusinessDesk.com is the perfect fit for the Awards, as we regularly write about and feature growing family businesses across the region. We look forward to meeting entrants past and present at the various events, judging sessions and awards evening itself over the course of 2018."

“Now in their ninth year, the Awards are firmly established as a highlight in the Midlands events calendar,” adds Charlotte, “and this year they look set to be even bigger and more exciting than ever. With The Business Desk as their media partner, new Award categories and fresh sponsors and judges, 2018 is already on track to be one of our best.”
