4. Bring us your problem project:
If you need help with a FrameMaker or RoboHelp project, put it on a memory stick and visit the Adobe stand. Maybe it is something you want to do but cannot figure out how, maybe you have a project that is not working the way you know it should. Either way, there will be a team of experts who can take a look and advise you. If they cannot deal with it on the spot, you can leave a copy with us and we will get back to you. Confidentiality is, of course, assured.

These conferences give us a great opportunity to meet and greet each other. If you would like to set-up a meeting, please drop me an email and we can schedule one either at the conference venue or after the conference. See you in Memphis!
