Berlin, 21 June 2016
Family businesses are crucial to the health of Europe's economy. They contribute more than 50% to the eurozone's private sector activity and are playing a crucial role in the recovery of many of the hard-pressed economies of the region.
In order to recognise this dynamic and vital sector, CampdenFB, in association with Societe Generale Private Banking, is holding the fifth annual European Families in Business Awards, after last year’s awards, which were held in Rome (click here for the 2015 winners).
This year the awards gala dinner will take place in Berlin on 21 June – a fitting location to celebrate family businesses, given the significant role family businesses play in the economy and society. Family-run enterprises comprise more than 99% of the private sector.
The awards are held in conjunction with our European Families in Business Conference.
Family-controlled businesses nurture the best virtues for successful enterprises: stability, longevity and sustainability. That is why we are acknowledging and celebrating the best family businesses, and their leaders.
