Beyond the print — exploring the poster session at IFLA

Recently, I entered a poster presentation for a conference for the first time. My theme, Celebrating 20 years of INASP, was accepted for the 78th IFLA World Library and Information Congress last month. What I hadn’t counted on was the amount of competition — there were nearly 200 posters being displayed. So it wasn’t just being ready to talk people through your poster, there was also the challenge of getting their attention in the first place! Some exhibitors were dressed up or had extra incentives like sweets, bookmarks and keyrings — my favourite was the offer of a story from one of the Finnish public libraries.
