SET-UP: do this carefully
When you start your presentation, use these tips to help keep the audience interested throughout your presentation:

GIVE: a 1-sentence summary of your research results and relevance (less than 30 seconds). (Purrington, 2010)
PRACTICE: a short talk to explain your research (less than 5 minutes).
PREPARE: responses to questions you anticipate. Why X conditions? What do the results mean for Y?
STAND: next to your poster, smile, make eye contact with visitors and let your enthusiasm show.
THANK: your audience afterwards
VISIT: other poster presentations at your meeting, and learn from them.
