I'm using this template for a conference. I changed it to be a portrait poster. Now I want this structure:

Structure

The problem is that I don't know how to construct that two boxes in the third row. Anyone has some idea?

    It would be good if you could post a sample of your code from the template. It would make this post self-contained (in the event that the link expires or is changed) and give the community (and future visitors) easy access to the code.

Same template can be forced to be portrait and with 6 columns (mcm for 1,2,3). Then it's easy to arrange your desired distribution:
