What You Need to Know

Poster Size Requirements

Storyboards will be mounted on 3 foot x 5 foot wood panel boards. The panel has no frame and therefore, the usable posting space is the full 3 feet wide x 5 feet high. IHI will provide 1 strip of the male side (hoop side) of Velcro to adhere your poster to the display board. A laminated poster will hang properly. We have found that cloth or fabric made posters do not adhere well to the boards with Velcro.​

Storyboard Display

All storyboards will be displayed in the Exhibition Hall. During set-up representatives from the Institute for Healthcare Improvement will be in the Exhibition Hall to direct you to your assigned display board, if needed.
