Poster presentations have evolved since their 1974 début1 and are no longer consolation prizes for abstracts not accepted for oral presentation.2 To maximize the likelihood of success, consider the unique features of this visual aid. From the presenter’s perspective, posters facilitate interaction in settings conducive to meaningful discussion. The presenter controls the content and can provide handouts for accurate recall. From the organizer’s perspective, posters make efficient use of time and space. Attendees can peruse many offerings, quickly grasp essentials, and access experts for questions not appropriate in large venues.3 This article provides a stepwise approach to capitalizing on these advantages, from abstract preparation to poster presentation.
