Event description
This masterclass will take you through everything you need to know to plan and design an engaging poster for on-site & virtual conferences.

About this event

With virtual conferences and hybrid conferences joining on-site conferences, it’s more important than ever before for your poster session contribution to be well-designed, engaging, and easy for your audience to understand.

In this two-part poster design masterclass, you will learn:

  • How to PLAN your poster with your aims and audience in mind.
  • How to use best-practice DESIGN principles to create a poster that people understand.
  • How to incorporate ENGAGING elements into your poster – printed or virtual.
  • How to PROMOTE your poster session and attract visitors for on-site sessions and virtual sessions.
  • Simple TECHNIQUES to present your poster with confidence.

We’ll also discuss the changing world of poster sessions as we move into online, hybrid, and even virtual reality conferences, to prepare you for what’s happening right now.

This masterclass is interactive and informative, and you’ll have a chance to learn from your peers’ experiences as well as those of the trainer. In addition, you’ll be invited to do a little “homework” between sessions, so that you can try out some of the planning techniques covered in session 1 and share your ideas in small groups.

By the end of this masterclass, you should have tools and techniques to help you design a fantastic poster for your next poster session, as well as practical ideas about design that you can apply to many other research and science communication materials that you may create in the future.

You’ll also receive:

Digital templates, handouts and reminders, a future reading list, and useful sources and references for material used in the workshop.
