The North West Family Business Awards are back under the wings of Concorde in Manchester for 2023, and applications are now open.

You can also nominate a family business that you think deserves to win a Family Business award!

The awards will recognise the achievements of family businesses from the North West region, and will be held on Friday 19th May 2023 at The Hangar, Concorde Conference Centre.

Family businesses across Cumbria, Lancashire, Cheshire, Merseyside and Greater Manchester are now invited to apply for the 2023 Awards.

Co-founder, Sue Howorth explains the origins of the awards, saying: “Since 2014 our community of family businesses has grown and grown and the appetite for bringing family businesses together to celebrate the sector has never been greater.

"Our awards are anything but a run-of-the-mill business awards. They really are an inspiring, inclusive, and uplifting celebratory experience to be a part of. Our categories are designed to appeal to family businesses of all shapes and sizes, from across all industries."

In total there are fifteen categories to choose from, including a new category for this year that recognises Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. Applicants have until 3rd February 2023 to enter their family business within one or more categories. Should you know a family business that deserves recognition, you can also nominate them via the website.

Finalists will be chosen through a rigorous two-stage judging process ahead of the ceremony, with the winners eventually crowned on the night. Presenting the awards will be food writer and broadcaster, Nigel Barden along with Co-Directors Sue Howorth and Dave Clarkson. Nigel is a huge champion of the family business sector and has worked closely with The Family Business Community for a number of years.

Dave Clarkson of The Family Business Community added: “I’m particularly excited to bring back our well-loved family business awards to the venue at Concorde. There is a huge wealth of talent, entrepreneurialism and passion that exists within the North West, and the awards will help to profile and champion that.

"We believe that our family business awards are not only a great way for companies and those working within them to shine, but they are also an opportunity to become more immersed within the safe and supportive peer to peer environment that is The Family Business Community.”

The North West Family Business Awards offer a number of sponsorship opportunities for those that support the sector. Information on the various packages is available via the website https://www.northwestfamilybusinessawards.co.uk/sponsorship-2/
