In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, The Frontier Conference has been postponed to ensure the safety and well-being of the Conference’s multi-national community of attendees.
The Conference had previously been set for April 1-3 at The Lyric Theatre in Birmingham. Conference organizers have rescheduled the Conference to September 14-16, 2020 at the same venue in Birmingham.
“Our main concern is the safety and health of all who were participating and planning to attend this conference. With participants and attendees planning to come from around the country, postponing the Frontier Conference is in the best interest of everyone’s well-being and frankly, the right thing to do,” said Hank Torbert, CEO and Founder of the Frontier Conference.
“Our team has already confirmed new dates,” Torbert said, “and we look forward to continuing our mission to gather innovative leaders from various industrial sectors to hear about best practices, share information, and build new relationships.”
With new conference dates being released, attendees who have already signed up will be notified and automatically signed up for the new dates. If attendees can no longer attend, they can either transfer the ticket to a colleague or request to be refunded.
