AGI Training to Present Acrobat & PDF Conference 2003
April event at Walt Disney World follows successful fall 2002 Acrobat training seminars
10 January 2003
Following on the heels of a successful, 25-city Adobe Acrobat training seminar series last fall, the AGI Training is planning to host a two-day Acrobat & PDF 2003 Conference in April. The event is set for Disney's Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, FL from April 10-11. Planet PDF is one of the co-sponsors for the new event.
"We're very pleased at Planet PDF to see that the continuing growth of smaller-focussed events centered around Acrobat and PDF," says Karl De Abrew, Planet PDF's CEO, "especially with this year being the official 10-year anniversary of Adobe's public introduction of the software and now-ubiquitous file format."
According to Christopher Smith, chairman of content for the conference, the event in the heart of Florida's Walt Disney World (check out the PDF-based map) will feature twenty-four separate educational sessions over two days, providing a wealth of PDF information organized into three separate track: CIOs and technology managers, PDF users and IT professionals.
"We are thrilled to partner with Planet PDF for the Acrobat & PDF 2003 conference," Smith says. "PDF professionals already turn to Planet PDF to find answers and learn about emerging technologies. Now conference attendees will find Planet PDF even more valuable, as conference archives and presentations will be available at PlanetPDF.com."
In the Technology Management track, managers can learn about PDF-based document and forms solutions. Sessions covering new and emerging PDF technologies, along with solutions from Adobe and other PDF vendors, are included. Sessions also include case studies showcasing best practices for PDF documents and forms, including PDF solutions from multiple vendors.
The PDF User track is for those responsible for creating, sharing and using PDF files. Sessions are focused on making users more efficient with Adobe Acrobat and other PDF software. Sessions include creating optimized PDFs for print and web publishing, editing PDF files, securing PDF files and converting documents to PDF.
Conference speakers include industry experts, authors, software developers and technologists -- currently including "Acrobat 5 PDF Bible" author Ted Padova, "Teach Yourself Acrobat in 24 Hours" author Christopher Smith, activePDF founder Tim Sullivan, Image Solutions President Jinsoo Kim and PDF Sages Chief Technology Officer Leonard Rosenthol.
An exhibit area will provide an opportunity to see the latest PDF technologies and meet with vendors developing PDF solutions. A partial list of exhibitors includes activePDF, Appligent, AGI, DataLogic, Enfocus, PowerXChange and Planet PDF.
Further details on the program, registration, calls for speakers and additional sponsorship opportunities are available on the Acrobat & PDF 2003 Conference Web site.
