The Family Business Network turns 30 – what better way to celebrate this than with a unique learning experience on board the 5-star cruise ship "Silver Shadow"!

We look forward to celebrating the past three decades of peer-learning, transforming and sharing our passion for business owning families.  In fact, this journey will mark the starting point of our "Expedition Future". An expedition that will lead us through the exciting, challenging and inspiring years to come. Years, that will help us grow personally and as a community.

Through innovative labs, interactive learning sessions as well as inspirational keynotes and real-life cases we will tackle our members' personal challenges.

  • 3 unforgettable days cruising with FBN friends and peers
  • Innovative networking opportunities in an extraordinary environment
  • Mind-opening keynotes inspired by artists, academics, family business leaders and explorers (such as Gabriela Montero, Bruno Giussani, John Davis, Ben Saunders, Yves Daccord, Patrick Daher, Veronica Maldonado and many more)
  • Unique musical performances by world-renowned pianist Gabriela Montero and Opera Singer Sam McElroy
  • Interactive solution labs on family business challenges
  • An inspiring afternoon in the beautiful city of Marseille
  • Spanish families hosting us in Barcelona for great learning and discoveries (such as Gallardo Family Group, Cobega/Coca Cola, Uriach, Puig, Cementos Molins, etc)
  • And so much more…

Let’s sail away with our future challenges and solve them together – as a family!
