Nearly 1,000 people attended the AIM Infotec conference, held at the Embassy Suites La Vista Conference Center on Tuesday. The annual conference brings together business and technology for a day of innovation and inspiration.

“The more people understand about where technology is, how to use it, how to take advantage of that technology the better off they’re going to be in their companies, so that helps the whole area thrive,” said Dave Vankat, director of events for AIM.

The Try It Zone featured the latest and greatest tech on the market with Virtual Reality Headsets, Google Home and Kiewit Construction’s augmented reality HoloLens being some of the most popular gadgets.

This year’s keynote speaker, former Amazon Executive John Rossman explained the significance of the Internet of Things (IoT) and technology innovations for businesses.

The AIM Infotec conference is a venture facilitated by AIM, a nonprofit that reaches thousands of people annually through tech education, events and programming.

“This year is our 25 th anniversary of working to grow the tech talent ecosystem in Omaha. We are looking forward to a celebration in April where we will mark the occasion and announce our plans to impact tech talent in Omaha and beyond,” said AIM President and CEO Kandace Miller.
