PowerPoint Presentation Tips

Print Friendly, PDF & Email
  • Presentations are most readable when using a dark background (blue, for example) and bright lettering (yellow or white.)
  • Use the absolute minimum number of words in the title, subtitle, and captions.  Remember that standard abbreviations are acceptable.
  • Avoid using small fonts.  In general, 28 point and larger fonts will be easy for everyone to read, while anything smaller than 20 points will likely be illegible from the back of the room
  • Use bold characters, not fancy serifs
  • Disclosures!  Please be sure to include as your second slide (after your title slide) any conflicts of interest disclosures and be sure to read through them before your presentation.  If you have nothing to disclose, declare that as well.  This is a requirement by the ACCME to accredit the session for CME credits.

It is not mandatory to use this template for your presentation at IDWeek, we suggest using it if you have not already designed one.  Fonts and background are designed to optimize readability in large session rooms.
