Adobe Acrobat and PDF Conference "exceeds expectations"

April 21, 2005


After the second and final day of the Adobe Acrobat and PDF Conference, it's time to look back on the conference that was. Having been on the spot on the show floor of the exhibit hall, I can personally say that even on the traditionally quiet second day, the booth traffic was surprisingly good. Exhibitor Charles James of Quite Software gushed over his experience, "It was a great show, good quality people, and I had a great time."

The approbation appeared to be widespread, as Ted Padova -- eminent author of the Acrobat 7 PDF Bible -- said of the seminars, "The feedback I've heard from users is that everybody really seems to enjoy the sessions -- there's a really good group of speakers here." I also managed to collar conference chair Christopher Smith, who indicated that organizers AGI Training considered the show to be an unmitigated success, having exceeded attendance projections, and gave special thanks to Ted Padova and Leonard Rosenthol, who each assisted with the development of what turned out to be a tight and comprehensive conference curriculum. I will be posting the full interview on Planet PDF soon, so watch this space!

The educational portion of the show finished with the Power Panel, a session in which delegates asked technical questions of an expert panel consisting of Ted Padova, Lori DeFurio, Duff Johnson and the inimitable -- not to mention ebullient -- Leonard Rosenthol. The session was ably moderated by Planet PDF's own Karl De Abrew, and ticked merrily along, covering not only live questions from the floor, but those previously submitted by delegates over the course of the conference. It provided great closure for the show, as attendees were able to ask any burning questions that remained after the course of sessions had run.

Until next time...
