You could try the flowfram package. For example:

\documentclass{a0poster}

\usepackage{flowfram}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\NcolumnStop{3}{4in} % 3 columns with 4in high header (for the title)

\title{A Poster}
\author{A.N. Other}

\begin{document}
\begin{staticcontents}{1}
\maketitle
\end{staticcontents}

\lipsum[1-2]

\begin{table}[htbp]
\caption{A Table}
\centering
\begin{tabular}{ll}
A & 1\\
B & 2
\end{tabular}
\end{table}

\lipsum[3]
\end{document}
