The Lima Regional IT Alliance will hold its annual 2017 Tech Conference, Thursday, April 13, 2017 from 7:45AM to 5:00PM at the Veterans Memorial Civic and Convention Center. This event is the region’s opportunity to come together to share knowledge about information technology. This year’s all-day conference comprises 12 educational sessions across 4 simultaneous tracks.

We’re very pleased to welcome Darren Kall of Specific Clarity, which is a specialist user experience (UX) company. He will be delivering the keynote presentation on the topic of security entitled “What to Do About Human Error in Security”. Darren is a successful user experience consultant as well as accomplished presenter having recently presented at TEDxDayton.

We’re also pleased to be able to bring back FBI Special Agent Scott Halbur as a featured speaker on the topic of cyber security. Last year’s presentation was so well received we thought it made sense to have a redux.

IT Exhibitors and Sponsors are a major contributor to the success of this conference. LRITA is very fortunate to be sponsored so far this year by 15 of the finest companies at local, regional, and national levels. We have currently have 18 exhibiters in the exhibit hall. LRITA’s many sponsors and exhibitors’ generosity have enabled us to keep the registration fees to a minimum. Please take a moment to thank our event sponsors and exhibitors by visiting their booths and attending their presentations.

Our hope is that this event will foster an atmosphere where we all support and strengthen each other’s individual growth and professional development. “Sharing the Knowledge” are our words of inspiration for our event as we all have so much to share with each other.

Although the 2017 Tech Conference hasn’t yet started, I wanted to look ahead to next year. The 2018 Tech Conference will be the 10th conference presented to the IT community of our region. I’m already excited about that and am looking forward to putting that one together. It will be held on Thursday, April 12th, 2018 so mark your calendars early.

We hope that you will come enjoy the day with us!
