The Midlands Family Business Awards are the UK's only independent not-for-profit awards for family businesses. Each year the Awards recognise and reward success across a range of 10 categories. 

The 2018 Awards will launch on 9 May with Breakfast in Birmingham at Opus Restaurant. We'd love you to join us so you can be the first to find out about the 10 exciting Award categories for this year - we like to keep things fresh so there'll be a few new categories for you to consider alongside our old favourites. We'll also introduce our sponsors, detail the key dates and explain the 2018 entry process. You'll have a chance to meet up with the Awards Team, our sponsors, judges and - of course - some of the fantastic Midlands family businesses!

Thank you to all our 2017 entrants, sponsors and judges - we couldn't do it without you and look forward to seeing you again at the 2018 Awards!
