Advice from a past poster presenter

“I have done a few posters through the years. I prefer one of two formats; each has pros and cons:

  1. Print one large poster on a poster/banner and put it in an architecture tube for travel.
    • Pro: 6 tacks and 2 minutes is all it takes to get the display ready.
    • Con: Does not pack well for a plane and easy to forget in the overhead bin.
  2. Print PowerPoint slides in color and arrange in an easy-to-follow order on the board. Number them or have arrows for flow.
    • Pro: Easy to pack and can easily print it again if needed.
    • Con: Not as ‘pretty’ and takes longer to put up and take down. 

I usually have a single page handout or a URL that viewers can access to get more information. It is also nice to have some way to share your business card, either on the board where attendees can take a photo, or on some sort of rack you can attach to the board for them to take away. You can make a disposable one out of light weight cardboard or use a small envelope.” — previous ATIA conference poster presenter
