POSTER GUIDELINES                                      

Quality Session, REaSoN Meeting 2017


Use these guidelines to create your poster:

  • Use a horizontal/landscape orientation.
    • Dimensions are not to exceed 48 inches wide X 36 inches high
    Simplicity and clarity are the keys to an effective poster.
    • Avoid overwhelming viewers with too much information—the casual viewer should be able to identify the main messages after a quick look at the poster.
    • Simple visuals (attractive charts, tables, and graphics) will greatly increase the effectiveness of any poster.
    • Symbols, letters, and numbers should be large enough to be seen from a distance of four feet.

If you wish to integrate video into your poster presentation, there are now a variety of commercially available hangers for iPads and similar devices that can be mounted to your poster. Please bring your own hanger, mount it securely, and be sure your electronic device is fully charged. Do not leave any electronic devices unattended. There is no electricity at the poster stations.
