Europe’s most innovative and entrepreneurial family businesses will meet in Italy next year to celebrate the best examples of leadership, next-generation achievement, and sustainability.

The European Families in Business Awards is to partner with BNP Paribas Wealth Management in 2019, heralding an exciting new era for the annual event that celebrates Europe’s finest business families.

The eighth annual awards, organised by CampdenFB, will be presented in Milan on 2 July at a gala dinner event attended by some of the Eurozone’s best-known families.

Since 2012, the event has become the leading awards for family-owned businesses in the Eurozone and has toasted 45 winners and 200 shortlisted nominees over the past seven years.

Announcing the partnership, Nicholas Moody, editorial director at Campden Wealth, said: “The European Families in Business Awards have firmly established themselves as the premier awards for family businesses, and working in association with BNP Paribas Wealth Management will only enhance their importance.”

Rémi Frank, member of the executive committee and head of the key client group, said BNP Paribas Wealth Management was “very proud” to sponsor the European Families in Business awards.

“These distinguished families have been key drivers over generations of economic growth and sustainability across the continent and it is an honour to recognise their achievements and to accompany them on this path.”

Dominic Samuelson, chief executive of Campden Wealth said: “We are delighted that BNP Paribas Wealth Management has chosen to partner with CampdenFB on its prestigious European Families in Business Awards which celebrate and recognise the extraordinary contributions of the ‘best in class’ family business leaders and organisations."

The awards, which will be held in conjunction with the 16th European Families in Business Conference, will honour winners across six categories:
