Welcome to the Midlands Family Business Awards 2018, the UK's only independent not-for-profit awards for family businesses! 

Voting has now closed for the People's Choice category, we'd like to thank all those that took the time to vote for their favourite family business of 2018. 

The results of the People's Choice category, together with the 10 judged categories, will remain secret until the Awards Ceremony & Dinner on 22 November. We are delighted to return to Athena in Leicester and proud to be supporting a family owned venue in the Midlands.

The Awards remain unique in their independence, their integrity, and a not-for-profit initiative. None of this would be possible without the incredible support that we receive from our finalists, our judges, our sponsors and supporters. Each one them has contributed to this year’s success. We thank them all for the role they play and look forward to celebrating with them.

We wish all our 2018 finalists the best of luck - the waiting is almost over!
