The Basics - how big is poster board and what is the set-up like?

At the ASMS annual conference, each poster presentation is provided one poster board. The usable space on each 'poster board' is 7 feet 10 inches across (239 cm) and 3 feet 10 inches high (117 cm). Each poster board will be numbered on the upper left corner.

There will be a table under each poster board. This table will be used/shared by two posters (the front and back of each poster board.) Approximately 8 inches of table space will provide a ledge under your poster. Poster boards are push-pin and Velcro compatible. 

ASMS provides push-pins at the Poster Supply counter located just inside the entrance of the poster hall. Also provided are special 'Poster Presenter' badges and 'I'll return in ___ minute' signs.
