Palmer Commons

Example of a poster session setup

Poster sessions can be set up in the Great Lakes Ballroom, Atrium 4 and 5. A total number of 47 posters can be set up in Great Lakes with an additional 25 posters setup in Atrium 4. This does not account for any food and beverage station table needs. Should you have more posters than we have space to display them, setup adjustments will need to occur. View an example poster session setup.

Shipping Materials
Shipping, Receiving and Storage: Palmer Commons can receive/manage incoming shipments up to 50lbs only. We are not responsible for processing outgoing shipments. All shipping fees must be paid by the client/group/guests who has reserved and confirmed event space. No COD packages will be accepted.

The facility scheduling office must be notified in advance of planned shipping arrangements. Due to limited storage space we cannot receive event material shipments earlier than 24hrs prior to the scheduled event. We are not responsible for lost or stolen items. If the Palmer Commons staff receives a package for a client/group that is earlier than 24hrs before the event a CHARGE per box will apply.

For groups planning to distribute large quantities of event material a storage/event room should be reserved. In the case of early shipments, a CHARGE per box charge will be assessed if the box precedes the reservation for the storage space.
