At the DMS EXPO, from the 24th to the 26th of September 2013 in Stuttgart, PDF Association members will explain how these PDF standards work, covering PDF itself, PDF/A for long-term archiving and e-invoicing, PDF/UA for barrier-free PDF documents, PDF/VT for variable and transactional printing and PDF/X for sending printing masters. The primary focus at the DMS EXPO will be the issue of e-invoicing using PDF/A-3 and the ZUGFeRD data model. The day before the show, the PDF Association will hold a half-day seminar discussing the PDF/A standard and e-invoicing with PDF/A-3.
