Since 2012, the Family Business Conference & Family Business Achievement Awards is an interactive workshop with leading industry experts that provides the type of actionable insight necessary to plan for a smooth transition of family businesses. Beginning with our event in 2019, we have combined the Business Longevity Awards with this conference to also recognize non-family organizations who have reached at least 50 years in business and learn how they have evolved through the years. Hear from a dynamic line up of panelists as they share real life examples of what separates success stories from failures. This networking breakfast and interactive workshop will offer perspectives from both industry experts and actual family business owners to address this and other issues facing both family-owned and non-family businesses every day.
The Family Business & Business Longevity Conference currently takes place in Cleveland.
Eligible Family Business Achievement Award nominees must have a minimum of two family members involved in the organization, and be privately held. A family member is defined as siblings, spouses, children, grandchildren, or cousins. They may be from a single generation or multi-generations. Eligible Business Longevity Award nominees must have been in business for a minimum of 50 years. Nominees for both awards must a have a physical location in Northeast Ohio.
