Central Ohio’s Only Awards Program Celebrating Family Businesses

On Wednesday November 16, 2022 we gathered at the Hilton Easton in Columbus to celebrate the accomplishments of Central Ohio family businesses at the 24th Annual Family Business Awards & Expo!

Conway Center members were invited to participate in the Family Business Expo preceding the Awards luncheon, providing them the opportunity to showcase their business, products, and services to hundreds of family business leaders and advisors.

The Awards luncheon honors recipients in categories consistent with the success and longevity of a family business: leadership, planning, communication, support, and community service.  Over 330 companies have been honored in the past 24 years and represent many of Central Ohio's finest family-owned businesses.

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

Nominations are now open for the November 15, 2023 Family Business Awards!  Nominate a family business, including your own, by submitting the nomination form.  Nominees do not have to be members of the Conway Center to be considered for an award.

All Award categories are listed at the bottom of this page, along with the online nomination form. Please contact us if you have any questions.
