IT staff can provide support for members of Department of Materials involved with planning and hosting of conferences or workshops or meetings. Please talk to IT staff about your requirements at an early stage in the process.
The Department of Materials has a variety of free-standing poster display boards suitable for small meetings and also for larger conferences (when combined with Engineering Science and sometimes Physics).
Colours: 17 blue boards, 19 green boards, 6 brown boards
Size: Landscape format H:90cm W:116cm (A0 posters are 83cm x 115cm)
Fixings: Velcro spots (hooks) are supplied with the boards.
Setup: maintenance staff can help transport and setup/dismantle boards
For most poster displays you need two boards on-top-of-each-other per poster to get the right height for reading the posters! For maximising the number of posters we recommend using both sides of the boards arranging them zig-zig in the middle of a room, rather than around the side walls of a room. Therefore the number of boards required depends how many posters you have to display and the actual room layout. Materials has 46 boards (19 green,17 blue,6 brown,1 red!). Engineering has 29 boards & 29 empty-frames.
In order to request poster boards please contact IT staff providing information about:1) setup date/time and return date/time; 2) number of boards required (estimate plus a few?); 3) purpose e.g. title of meeting; 4) location of display (building/room) 5) your contact details.
