There are many reasons to attend PDF Days this year. For one, June is the best time of the year to visit Berlin. The air is sweet, the trees are in bloom and the currywurst is hot!

On June 14-15, Berlin is also the place to be for those seeking knowledge and experience in the creation and management of electronic documents.

Why is PDF such an important technology? Here are five reasons to consider.

1. PDF is alive, well and growing

It’s hard to find any technology for which the proportion of Google searches increases over time. PDF is that technology. Not only are there billions of PDF files on the planet, not only is that number increasing by tens of millions each day... but the proportion of searches that include "PDF" continues to grow, as Google Trends makes clear.

2. PDF remains fundamental to business operations

When it comes to exchanging documents, diagrams, contracts, invoices and many other document types there’s still no substitute for PDF technology, nor any replacement on the horizon. PDF is here, and it’s here to stay.

3. PDF is everywhere… and underutilized everywhere

PDF’s potential to enable new means of communication and reduce costs are still unrealized by the vast majority of customers. The power of PDF forms, PDF attachments, tagged PDF, 3D PDF and many other features are still unknown to the vast majority of end-users, IT professionals, ECM consultants and systems integrators, even in organizations which focus on reducing costs.

4. Awareness of PDF’s features is becoming more important

From the PDF/A archival standard to ZUGFeRD e-invoicing solutions, from accessible documents to transactional printing applications, PDF documents offer far more than a printable electronic document. More businesses are using PDF technology to automate and accomplish an ever-widening set of business tasks. From comparing documents to digital signatures to validation, increasing business reliance on PDF is spawning new and exciting uses for this globally-accepted technology.

5. PDF expertise, answers and solutions are at hand

This year’s PDF Days event is the largest ever, with four tracks, almost 50 sessions and an intensive day of Pre-Conference events. Dozens of world-class PDF experts will be available to answer questions, provide recommendations and more. Check out the PDF Days program of events, and register now!
