Central Ohio’s Only Awards Program Celebrating Family Businesses

Join us on Wednesday November 16, 2022 at the Hilton Easton in Columbus to celebrate the accomplishments of Central Ohio family businesses at the 24th Annual Family Business Awards & Expo!  The Awards luncheon honors recipients in categories consistent with the success and longevity of a family business: leadership, planning, communication, support and community service.

More than 300 companies have been honored in the past 23 years and represent many of Central Ohio's finest family-owned businesses.  We are pleased to announce the 2022 honorees who will be celebrated on November 16.

The Conway Center for Family Business Awards Program annually recognizes family businesses that have:

  • Successfully transferred the leadership of the company from one generation to the next
  • Found a unique solution to a complex business problem
  • Made a contribution to our community
  • Gone above and beyond the call of duty to help an employee, customer or vendor
