Poster Presentation Guidelines

Poster production

The poster author is responsible for printing their own poster. Each poster should be no larger than A0 size and should be in portrait orientation (840 mm wide by 1190 mm high). We suggest you use a company such as Warehouse Stationary who do A0 size printing while you wait. The cost of printing an A0 poster on a heavy paper stock (160gsm to 200gsm) is approximately $25 - $40. 


Tips for preparing your poster

Successful posters get the key messages across succinctly and clearly. A good poster has a main theme, presents useful information and stimulates discussion. It usually includes pictures or graphs. If you need thought starters, here are website links about poster design that you may find useful:

Creating an Effective Poster


Mounting your poster

Please bring your poster to the conference registration desk at the following times:

  • Between 8am and 6pm on Monday 31 October
  • Between 7am and 8am on Tuesday 1 November

Posters will be displayed in a prominent position within the conference venue on black Velcro panels. Please bring Velcro hook dots or pins with you so you can attach your poster securely to the wall. (Blu-Tack or Sellotape will not work). 


Poster presentation session

The poster presentation sessions for HiNZ and SFT will be held in a conference session room on Wednesday afternoon. The session facilitator will ask each poster author to speak for approximately 2-3 minutes about their poster.


Best Poster Award

During the conference delegates will be invited to vote for their choice of best poster using the conference app. The Best Poster Award will be presented at the conference Awards Dinner on Wednesday 2 November 2016.


Removal of posters

Posters must be removed before 5pm on Thursday 3 November or they will be disposed of by the venue as rubbish.
