Poster printing service

We are pleased to offer presenters a poster printing service with delivery to the conference. This service will ensure your poster arrives at the conference on time and for those travelling by air, saves you having to carry your poster through airport security. 

Posters are printed in full colour and will be available to collect from the registration desk on the first day of the conference. Posters will be printed as A0 in a portrait format on 200 gsm photo satin stock.  The cost per poster is £40.

Please read the following before supplying your poster. Unfortunately, it will not be possible to make any amendments once your order has been accepted.

  • All fonts should be embedded (select embed fonts in distiller options) or converted to curves.
