This year the APAC Forum did posters in a new, innovative way. Rather than simply displaying printed posters, we offered interactive, digital poster displays that enable delegates to browse and select the posters they want to view. The digital displays have been a huge hit with delegates.
Posters at this year’s APAC Forum covered several key themes, including technology, leadership, efficiency, equity, community care and lessons and innovations from different industries.
The Poster Awards ceremony, on the morning of day 2 of the conference, acknowledged the best posters in each theme. Ko Awatea warmly congratulates the following winners and runners up:
