A poster is just an ordinary-sized document,
printed at a larger size.

When I need a poster, I just prepare it at A4 size
and print at A0 or A1, by magnifying appropriately
in the print-dialog of the software that sends the
job to the poster-printer.

No special settings are needed in the (Xe)LaTeX job,
except perhaps to reduce the margins and increase
the \textwidth and \textheight .
