The Family Business Conference – Chester 2020

The Family Business Conference is a well established and respected event in the family business calendar, originating in Cumbria in 2016 and evolving across other regions.  The conference provides a unique opportunity for family business owners looking to learn from and network with like-minded individuals and the best family business leaders in their region.

The Family Business Conference Chester will adopt the same successful format as our flagship event, featuring contributions and speakers from highly-respected family business leaders across the sectors, an interactive session with different real-life business scenarios, along with live interviews.  An engaging and valuable event suitable for all involved in the family business sector.
