The top leaders, entrepreneurs, innovators and ventures in European family business have a little extra time to be nominated for the community's most prestigious awards.

The submissions deadline for the European Families in Business Awards 2017 has been pushed back by one week to 17 March due to an “overwhelming response," organisers said.

“I have fielded a number of requests to extend the deadline and decided that more family businesses will be able to promote their achievements by granting requests for the extension,” CampdenFB editor and judge Nicholas Moody said this week.

The sixth annual award ceremony will be held on 20 June in Prague.

The popular ceremony is always well attended—past winners have included Messer Group, the Mack Family, Fiege Group, the Prym family, Danfoss, Pentland Group and Puig. The gala dinner accompanies one of Campden Wealth's flagship events, the European Families in Business Conference, now in its 14th year.
