About the Event


The Fourth Revolution Awards celebrates regional manufacturing for its leadership and innovation as the industry stands on the brink of a new technological revolution. Going into its fourth year, the ceremony will culminate virutally in the presentation of five awards to deserving leaders, companies, and industrial initiatives that have made significant contributions to the Midwest region’s manufacturing ecosystem.

This year, we are taking 4Rev digital. Though there is no charge for registration this year, we invite you to support the Fourth Revolution Awards with a suggested $50 donation. Proceeds will support scholarships and apprenticeship programs at Daley College.

We have set a goal to raise a minimum of $5,000. Achieving this goal will make a huge impact and enables 34 credit of study for students. This can result in 5 students earning their Welding Basic Certificate, or 5 students each taking their first 2 courses toward their CNC certificate, or 11 students each taking their first class in Industrial Electricity toward their Factory Automation Certificate.

You'll have the option to attend the virtual ceremony in support of Daley College or to support Daley College without receiving an e-ticket. Once you have registered, you will receive an e-ticket via email. We will follow up closer to the event with the details on how to join virtually.


The Fourth Industrial Revolution fuses physical product development with digital processes to impact all disciplines, economies and industries. Central to this revolution are emerging technology breakthroughs in fields such as the Internet of Things, autonomous vehicles, 3D printing, robotics and artificial intelligence. It is a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. In its scale, scope, and complexity – the transformation will be unlike anything humankind has experienced before.
