Pre-JavaOne sales and Marketing trip to San Francisco in October

1 min read

One of my favorite parts of our trip to JavaOne is the chance to arrive early and visit lots of people. JavaOne starts on Sunday 25th October, so I will arrive in San Francisco for the week before, flying in on 20th October from the UK.

Revisiting Customers in San Francisco

San Francisco sits at the the centre of Silicon Valley, so it makes an ideal base to visit current and potential clients in the city as well as trekking down to Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Redwood City, etc.

One of the most useful aspects for me of the JavaOne show and the week before is the chance to see how our customers are using the PDF to HTML5 & SVG Converter and Java PDF Library and to get ideas for new features. Lots of the features you see in the 2015 came from these discussions and we also got to fix some really knotty issues for one client onsite.

It also gives me a chance to see potential clients. I would be happy to come and visit and talk about anything PDF and HTML related. This is at no cost or obligation – I just need to know so that I can plan my flight and schedule and I have limited slots which we issue on a first come first served basis.

So if you are a user of our software, a potential customer, or would just like to talk about PDF/HTML5 problems you would like to solve, let me know asap and I will try to fit you into my schedule.

Hope to see you next month….
