In my lab, if anyone wants to go to a meeting, they have to do a poster
(at least!).  Great way for them to meet others, start conversations,
and of course, as Deb says, it never hurts to show the flag.  So,
some posters are light on data....but it's never too soon for students
to learn how to present and discuss their projects.
