ASHHRA is offering an exclusive opportunity this year for your learning session submission to be prominently on display as a poster presentation. You will be face-to-face with attendees, making valuable connections and be seen as the expert prominently displayed in the main hall of the ASHHRA 51st Annual Conference. This opportunity is limited to 25 posters.

By facilitating informal discussions between presenters and their audience, poster presentations provide a more intimate forum for exchange than regular presentations. Ideally, a well-constructed poster will be self-explanatory and free you from answering obvious questions so that you are available to supplement and discuss particular points of interest. Successful poster presentations are those which achieve both coverage and clarity.


Viewers should be able to scan material quickly. It takes about 3 seconds to attract a viewer. Have you provided all the pertinent facts? Will a viewer walk away understanding your major findings after a quick glance of your materials? Will a more thorough reviewer learn enough to ask informed questions? Some questions to consider when making your poster are “what would I need to know if I was reading this information?”

Suggested content includes title/author label and abstract; most successful posters provide brief statements of introduction, method, subjects, procedure, results and conclusion.

Is your poster clear? Is there an evident sequence of information indicated by arrows or letters? Is the material presented in a clear and concise fashion? Put the main points you want to convey in a distinct manner that will generate discussion. Be selective but self-explanatory with what you share to garner communication.



The poster presenter is required to bring the poster to the ASHHRA 51st Annual Conference on Saturday, September 19 no later than 8:30 a.m. ET and check in at registration as a poster presenter and set up at the designated area.  



During the following designated poster presentation hours, it is required that there is someone stationed at your poster to interact with attendees.
