Poster Mounting

Check your confirmation letter or the ENDO 2024 Online Planner starting late-March for your scheduled presentation day.

  • Boards are used by different presenters each day. Only mount your poster on your scheduled presentation day. 
  • Posters mounted before 7:00 AM or after 3:30 PM will be discarded.
  • Mount your poster in the ENDOExpo hall between 7:00–9:00 AM for maximum attendee viewing time.
    • Follow hall entrance and exit instructions from security personnel.
    • Poster presenters must leave the hall immediately after mounting their posters.
    • The hall will close to poster presenters after 9:00 AM for exhibitor setup. If you do not mount your poster before 9:00 AM, you must wait until the hall officially opens for the day to mount your poster.
  • Pushpins will be provided. Do not use alternative adhesives.
  • You are responsible for your poster carriers, tubes, or mailers. The Society is not responsible for any lost or stolen items on the ENDOExpo floor.

Poster Presentation

  • The primary author or a co-author must register for and attend ENDO 2024 to present and validate the published abstract.
  • If you have posters in more than one topic area scheduled on the same day and you or a co-author cannot be at all of them, we recommend posting a note on your additional board(s) indicating where attendees can find you.

Poster Removal 

  • Remove your poster by 3:30 PM. All posters and materials not removed by 3:30 PM each day will be discarded.

Poster Size

  • The poster board display area is 3'9" high by 7'9" wide (1.14 m high by 2.36 m wide).
    • You may prepare a poster that is smaller, but DO NOT EXCEED THIS SIZE.

Poster Printing

  • Do not print posters on thick or heavy materials such as poster board or vinyl. The material your poster is printed on must be able to be mounted for several hours with pushpins. High-quality paper or fabric posters will stay in place with pushpins. 
  • Print on matte material if possible (glossy results in glare).
  • Providing printed copies of your abstract (posted next to your poster or placed on the floor underneath your poster board) is helpful for attendees viewing your poster when you are not standing next to it.
  • Genigraphics is an online printing provider that offers ENDO 2024 presenters a 10% printing discount.  Go to Genigraphics to place your order and enter ENDO10% in the Special Instructions. After Genigraphics receives the order, they will discount it by 10% of the total amount and provide an updated confirmation. If shipping for arrival at ENDO 2024 in Boston, you must ship directly to your hotel.

Poster Text
  • Use large print (at least 1/2" (1.8 cm) high).
  • Keep text and figure legends concise, but do not omit them.
