Guidelines for Poster Displays

Displays may consist of a one-piece poster, or a two dimensional collection of smaller pieces which utilize the panel as a background.

Posters must measure not more than 72" wide x 36" high or 6ft x 3ft.

Handouts may not be left on the floor but can be affixed with velcro (male)  to the lower portion of the poster board.

Business card or brochure holders may be attached to the display panel using velcro (male).

Displays will be showcased during the conference breaks and lunch. We ask that a representative be present at the poster during these times.

You will be Responsible for:

Setting up your own poster on either Thursday November 2nd evening or Friday November 3rd between 6am and 8am.

All expenses associated with creating your presentation, conference registration and travel expenses to the conference.

We will provide you with the “male” or “hook” Velcro and push pins needed to attach your poster to the poster boards. For heavier items please ensure that there is sufficient Velcro attached to the items to prevent damage or falling.
