Do your attendees use hashtags? Wait a sec. Do they have access to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc.? If yes – are they between the ages of 15 and 45 (these group of people is more likely to use hashtags)? If yes – undoubtedly go on to step number 2.
2. Brainstorm hashtag ideas
Be unique. That`s your mantra. Your MUST be in here. First of all, come up with as many ideas as you can. If you got stuck and your creative juices aren’t flowing. There’s no need to worry. Use online hashtag generators (e.g. Hashtagify.me, RiteTag, and Trendsmap). They can generate hashtag ideas for you. Write down the list of brainstormed hashtags for your event and snag the best one.

That`s part of your event’s branding activities. The right promotion of your event can create a buzz. Thus, use the hashtag on every single one of your posts about the event. It will help you get people interested and involved.
5. Engage with hashtag users and repost
While engaging you’re letting people know that you appreciate their engagement. So, don’t hesitate to like and comment on posts by people using your hashtag, tag people (who are using your hashtag) on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram etc.
The engagement should not be allowed to slide.
