For many associations in the medical, scientific, and engineering industries, poster presentations are an important part of the annual meeting. Besides giving graduate students and young professionals a platform to display and discuss their research, poster presentations give attendees the opportunity to learn about innovation in their field.
The challenge comes in when, just like other sessions, there are more good ideas to listen to them time to hear them. Providing online access to posters gives the presenters additional exposure and helps the attendees and other association members learn more about cutting-edge research.
In addition to poster collection and printing services, Omnipress offers online access to posters. Your association can control access to this information, just like other content on an event website, or leave it open to the public. It’s up to you!
Responsive design is another feature of online posters. A poster will appear differently on a desktop computer and a mobile device, whether it’s a smartphone or a tablet. Menus are shown in a manner that is appropriate for the screen being used to view it. Responsive design is a must-have in order to best read the small, dense text used in scientific research.
When attendees view poster presentations at your annual meeting, it’s worthwhile to get it closer view to read the particulars of the research being presented. That same level of detail can be seen in online posters as well. Attendees can simply hover over a section of the poster and see a pop–up that magnifies the content; then they can easily read the text. This can also be valuable when viewing complicated diagrams and charts.
