About the Summit
"This was again a high-quality event discussing relevant matters for multi-generational family businesses. There is no other event where we can exchange ideas so openly with our peers. Thank you FBN."
The Summit is more than a conference: it is a transformational journey for owners and future owners where they interact with peers and gain tools and relations that will allow them to thrive across generations. The Summit aims to provide a “state of the art” Family Business reunion, thanks to inspirational speeches, thought leadership, world-renowned academics moderation, Family Business cases, and networking opportunities in outstanding settings.

What is the experience like?
Over the past 16 years, the NxG International Summit has brought participants to places they thought they would never go geographically, emotionally, and mentally.
In the spirit of the NxG Communities’ mission: “Happier families and sustainable businesses through an aware and inspired Next Generation.”
With this vision, FBN-I targets not only NxGs but also their families. The NxG International Summit is a safe space for parents to send future generations in order to gain the level of self-confidence, awareness and happiness required to become engaged and responsible future owners.
