This year, Family Business Week celebrates the important role of family firms in supporting their local economy and community. This Summit will bring together leading family businesses with family business peers, advisors, policymakers and MPs to share best practice and real examples of the function of family businesses in thriving local economies.

Through supporting employees, local suppliers, customers, community and charitable initiatives family businesses enrich the communities they serve, with roots which often go back generations.

Family Business Week 2024 will run from the 25th – 29th November with events in London and the North West.

Special thanks to FBW Principal Sponsors NatWest.
