Poster guidelines

Poster boards are 2m by 1m (h x w) and orientated vertically. Posters should be A0 in size (118.9 x 84.1cm / 46.8 x 33.1 inches), in a portrait format. Fixing material adequate for paper posters will be supplied. Please note any posters printed in fabric might be harder to mount and will possibly fall from the boards.

Posters must be prepared in advance of the conference as it will not be possible to print them on-site.

Poster printing service

We are delighted to offer presenters a poster printing service with delivery to the conference. This service will ensure your poster arrives at the congress on time and for those travelling by air, saves you having to carry your poster through airport security. 

Posters are printed in full colour and will be available to collect from the registration desk on the first day of the conference. Posters will be printed as A0 in a portrait format on 200 gsm photo satin stock.  The cost per poster is £40.

Please read the following before supplying your poster. Unfortunately, it will not be possible to make any amendments once your order has been accepted.

  • Please make sure your document has been proofed before supplying the files – this means you have checked the document for spelling and grammatical errors, colour issues, layout and design.
  • Artwork should be supplied as a high resolution (300 dpi) PDF’s and must be A0 in size.
  • All fonts should be embedded (select embed fonts in distiller options) or converted to curves.
  • Colour palette – supply as a CMYK PDF, not RGB. It is important to ensure that all images used are also converted to CMYK.

Poster files need to be supplied by 1 July 2019. Files received after this time will be subject to a 50% surcharge.
