Planet PDF's Karl De Abrew will moderate two of the conference's traditionally most popular sessions -- Monday's "Warp Speed Product Overviews" and Tuesday's closing "PDF Power Panel" in which conference attendees have the opportunity to ask questions of a select panel of the assembled experts. Most of the questions will subsequently be posted to the Planet PDF Forum for further discussion.
The PDF Conference Exposition will showcase Acrobat/PDF-oriented products from companies including:
AdLib eDocument Solutions
Adobe Systems, Inc.
Once again, Planet PDF -- a founding co-sponsor of and active participant in the DigiPub Solutions' event -- will be the official source for downloading speaker presentations (as made available) from the PDF Conference.
