The Family Business Community is thrilled to announce the much-anticipated return of the Yorkshire and Humberside Family Business Awards for its second year on Friday, 10th November and will be held at The Majestic Hotel, situated in the beautiful spa town of Harrogate, providing an elegant backdrop for an evening of celebration and recognition.

Entries and Nominations are now open, inviting businesses to showcase their accomplishments or nominate other deserving family businesses via the awards’ official website https://yorkshireandhumbersidefamilybusinessawards.co.uk

The Yorkshire & Humberside Family Business Awards 2023, hosted by the Family Business Community, are not just another business award. They are a unique celebration dedicated to recognising and honouring the exceptional contributions of family businesses in the region, giving them a spectacular night to celebrate, network and remember.

Co-Founder, Sue Howorth, said “Our awards go beyond the ordinary business awards. We aim to showcase and champion the remarkable family businesses that call this region home, fostering a sense of harmony within the Yorkshire and Humberside business community.”

“We know through our work that Family Businesses are run on an emotional and rational basis and forever in pursuit of the balance of both. The whole event will be themed around this.”

Dave Clarkson, also a Co-Founder of The Family Business Community, expressed his excitement around the return of the awards. As a proud Yorkshireman, he stated, “I am thrilled that our beloved family business awards are returning to this fantastic region.

“Our family business awards not only provide a platform for companies and their dedicated teams to shine, but they also create an immersive and supportive environment within the family business community,” Dave continued. “We believe that by participating in these awards, businesses can further engage and connect with like-minded peers who offer valuable support, and encouragement.”

Entries and Nominations for the Yorkshire & Humberside Family Business Awards 2023 are now open and will close on Friday, 8th September. Businesses can make an entry themselves or nominate other outstanding family-owned businesses that have made a significant impact in their respective industries.

The Yorkshire & Humberside Family Business Awards 2023 feature 14 categories, which ensure a comprehensive representation of family-owned enterprises. These categories include Employee of the Year, Best Social Impact and People’s Choice Award. An esteemed panel of handpicked judges and former winners will meticulously evaluate the entries to ensure a fair and transparent selection process, and then all shortlisted finalists will receive a judge’s visit.
