To provide a platform with the biggest possible know-how in heritage and succession matters. Every case is individual and different, but there are still lots of commonalities.
The FBN Austria organizes events for members on a national basis in well-known member businesses and arranges meetings with presentations and reports from expert economists.
Internationally, there is an annual high-level global summit organized by the FBN International. Participants get the possibility to learn from and with each other and meet different family business cultures and customs from all over the world.
Three times a year, international events for the young generations are organized by the FBN Next Generation.
