35 hashtags in the events industry every marketing professional should use

Most Follow Hashtags in the event industryThis list has been reviewed on 1 April 2017

This is our definitive list of hashtags every events industry professional must follow without fault.

Twitter is not only a tool that you will use to broadcast and say a lot of things about yourself, your company or your event. It is a tool to simply stay informed about your industry and getting interesting tips and content that you can literally use to do your job better.

This is the list I personally follow on twitter and since a lot of you asked me about this, here it is.

These are the top 3 event industry hashtags that shouldn't slip under your radar 

We have checked and run these through RiteTag and Keyhole.co to give you an idea of the reach these hashtags have. If you have some hashtags of your own that you use on a regular basis, you should check them through these websites and gain some interesting insight.

Also note that since they are the most popular, they can also get abused and spammed by some.

1. #eventprofs

This is the most commonly used hashtag in the events, meetings and conference industry. This is the best way to connect and stay tuned with other like minded passionate event peeps.


 2. #meetingprofs

Very similar to the #eventprofs but this one is a little bit more specific and American focused. For some reason americans call the conference, events and meetings interchangeably. 


 3. #eventtech

Focuses on event technology and where most of the cool apps, tools, websites, and promotions are found.
