North West Family Business Awards 2022

Friday 13 May 2022
The Rum Warehouse, Titanic Hotel, Liverpool


The North West Family Business Awards are organised and run by The Family Business Network, and provide a fantastic opportunity for family businesses of all shapes and sizes to share and celebrate their success stories.

We aim to offer something a little different, and we’re sure those who attended our 2020 event would agree that we are not a ‘run of the mill’ awards. Instead we focus on creating a warm, welcoming and vibrant atmosphere in which to celebrate and dance the night away.

The inaugural North West Family Business Awards in 2020 took off in first class style, beneath the wings of the Concorde at Manchester Airport. Having been unable to hold the Awards in 2021, we are aiming to make the North West Family Business Awards 2022 even bigger and better!

The North West Family Business Awards 2022 will take place on Friday 13 May at the fantastic Rum Warehouse, part of the iconic Titanic Hotel situated on the Liverpool docks. We are thrilled to welcome back host Nigel Barden to our Awards in 2022. A food and drink broadcaster, Nigel Barden is also a North West native, having grown up on a farm in Lancashire.

Expressions of interest and nominations are now open! The North West Family Business Awards are open to family businesses based in Cumbria, Lancashire, Cheshire, Merseyside and Greater Manchester.
