We are truly giving the public exactly what they have been asking for," Young says.

In addition to attending specialized sessions such as "Adobe Creative Suite: New PDF Options" by Claudia McCue of Practicalia, conference attendees will be able to learn what's new in the Acrobat/PDF industry as a variety of companies show off their latest software offerings at the PDF Conference Expo.
