Orlando event offers detailed look at Acrobat 7

The Adobe Acrobat and PDF Conference 2005 offers a first opportunity for an in-depth view of Adobe Acrobat 7 — including an understanding of the new Adobe LiveCycle tools for PDF (including Adobe LiveCycle Designer, the PDF- and XML-based forms design tool) and of how to unlock powerful tools within v. 7 of the free Adobe Reader. The conference, set for April 20-21 at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, Florida, is presented by AGI Training, and offers 30 sessions in three tracks — Users, Management and Technical — led by many of the top industry experts. In addition, the event features a one-day lead-in (separate registration and fee) with a selection of April 19 training sessions on key topics. Planet PDF is a co-sponsor of and active participant in the AGI conference.

‘Planet PDF is pleased to affirm its status as a major media sponsor of the 2005 Adobe Acrobat and PDF Conference, continuing its tradition of fruitful collaboration with premium PDF-relevant seminars,’ says Karl De Abrew, Planet PDF founder and CEO. ‘This event will offer many attendees their first look at the recently released Acrobat 7.0 family of products and solutions, dovetailing with Planet PDF’s up-to-the-minute feature coverage to provide a complete picture of this exciting technology.’
