Choosing The Perfect Presentation for Your Next Meeting
When you are looking to display your work at a conference or in a meeting, you will want a presentation that is simple, yet eye-catching. And of course, one that doesn’t cost too much and is easy to maneuvre.
So, how do you choose the right display stand for that upcoming seminar?
Suppose you are going to be traveling to many conferences or meetings… You will, understandably, want a presentation that’s nottoo heavy. You may decide to choose a fabric display stand, as these are generally the lightest, but remember that the fabric is held in place by titanium poles. This is fine when you are driving and can place the poles in the back seat of your car, but may prove troublesome, if you need to carry them around by hand. So, always opt for the lightest and sturdiest material for a display, such as fabric.
Now, onto practicality. How easy is the display to transport? Does it come apart so it can be folded down and placed into the trunk of a car? Or do you need to keep it in one piece? If you travel a lot, you will want a display that is easy to move about. Aim to choose a display that comes apart and can be put back together easily to create a sturdy frame for your presentation.
Choosing the size of your display stand, will depend on how many people you are aiming to use it to present to, and of course, what is going to be displayed on it. For meetings, you may want a stand that is of medium size, to show bar charts or pie graphs. However, if you are using the stand as part of a conference presentation, you may want a slightly larger display.
If you are looking to display a poster on your panel, always be sure to measure the poster dimensions before ordering the stand that it is going to be attached to.
Do you need a display stand or a board?
It is true that the majority of display boards are made from either wood or plastic, usually with a fabric or laminate covering. However, you may want to use the display board for as long as possible, which may mean attaching a cable to it, to display a moving image or even a video. In this sense, it can be best to invest in a display that is hollow at the back, which will allow cables to run through without making holes in the board itself.
Flat or Curved?
There is now the option to choose a display (board or stand), that has either a flat or a curved front surface. If you are presenting your work at a meeting or a conference where people can walk around and pause, having your work on a flat display panel might be the best option. However, if you’re displaying your work to an audience, such as one in a lecture hall, it may be a better idea to have a curved board or stand display. This will allow the people viewing from the sides, to still see all of the information.
