Signs of a Better World: Innovation, Acceleration and Value Creation

Today starts a new chapter for The Frontier, building on years of successful Frontier Conferences since 2017. Through the years, we have brought together thousands of thought leaders, entrepreneurs, innovators, executives, visionaries, and investors to cross-pollinate ideas, re-think the future of industrials and build a nationwide industrial innovation ecosystem. The best and brightest minds from all industry sectors have hit The Frontier Conference stage to discuss ways to solve some of the world’s biggest problems.

This annual gathering of innovation leaders, generously hosted by the legendary city of Birmingham, Alabama, has been the perfect place for people to exchange ideas, advance their missions, and network with like-minded innovators and investors in real time.

The unfortunate surge of the pandemic in 2020 halted many conferences, including The Frontier Conference. However, in 2021 we came back strong as we produced our first fully-virtual conference, where sponsors, speakers, attendees, academic partners, and the media joined us and benefited from educational and inspirational sessions while still making cross-industry connections.

Our media sponsor this past Spring was IoT Evolution, one of Technology Marketing Corporation’s (TMC) most popular online publications. This extremely successful partnership led to further discussions about the growth of industrial innovation. We learned more about our shared interests in the rapidly expanding and dynamics of the ecosystem, the times we live in as we all work to address climate change, economic recovery, investment in infrastructure, job creation, education, and the renewal of our cities and towns.

The discussions were put into action.  Rich Tehrani, the Publisher and CEO of TMC, shared his impeccable vision and unlimited support of this new endeavor. The Frontier together with TMC’s accomplished team of developers, editors, writers, event producers, marketing campaign experts, who have built their company into a global media powerhouse, we established a formal partnership and today are proud to launch The Frontier Hub, the first digital media platform of its kind focused on industrial innovation.

While we will continue to build on the success of our conferences annually, we now have an online domain where those interested in contributing to Industry 4.0 can find the highest quality original content, can access the announcements of the companies and organizations we will be following in a convenient place and can network and spur even more powerful solutions together.

The goal is for us all to prosper on “The Hub” and mutually benefit from success stories shared, revealed solutions to challenges, and people who will connect and share the same passion for making the world cleaner, safer, and more inclusive. This bold new digital publication is ready to serve a truly meaningful purpose.

Thank you for visiting The Frontier Hub’s media platform! Please subscribe and let me and our Editor-in-Chief, Kalisa Moore, (who also happens to produce the Frontier Conference with extreme dedication and a commitment to world-class quality), know what you think and how you’d like to participate. We look forward to partnering with you!
