A guide to presentation boards

Published on by Ray Knott

There are many Display board ideas on the market and whether you choose wall-mounted boards, display easel boards or Exhibition display boards will depend on your budget and your specific needs. We look at a range of available presentation boards to suit just about every situation and budget.

Fixed presentation boards

Traditional wall boards, either cork or pin boards make a really good display panel providing large areas for displaying information. They can be placed in rooms or in corridors where people pass by regularly.

It is quite costly initially but you will have many years of service from them.

Dry wipe whiteboards can also be mounted on the wall. They are useful for interactive presentations and the spirit-based marker pen can be wiped off with a dry cloth. Dry wipe boards can also be used as poster boards to display information temporarily with adhesive tape.

Flip chart presentation boards

A flip chart is a slightly larger than an A2 size paper pad that can either be fixed temporarily to a wall or used on its own stand. They are used for interactive style presentations and once a page is filled up, you can either tear off the page and stick it on a wall or wall board or you can "flip" the page over for later use. It is very economical and portable even with a stand.

Use ordinary marker pens to write on the pages.

Mobile presentation boards

Dry wipe boards can be mounted on a portable dry erase board easel with the board being large enough to fit into the boot of a car. There are also available exhibition boards that can be easily assembled on location for a trade show display for instance, with the boards themselves covered in felt, allowing information, posters, product information etc. to be displayed in a creative way.

Several exhibition boards can be assembled together to create exhibition booths. You can also have smaller tabletop displays which could be a combination of small white boards or felt-covered display boards; the advantage being that the smaller size makes transportation easier and suitable for smaller venues.

Interactive presentation boards

Interactive white boards or "smart" boards as they are commonly known use a computer and projector to deliver a presentation interactively. The presenter is in control of the presentation by tapping the board with a finger or dragging displayed icons or information with a finger.

Multiple programs can be displayed such as PowerPoint presentations or previously displayed information on the board. The disadvantage is that they are expensive systems, not portable and need calibrating before use. However, they are state of the art technology for presentations and if used properly, they give a very professional presentation.
