You’re probably already using hashtags on social media. They’re widely-used on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook – even Snapchat. But do you use hashtags to help you at work?

We know, we know – social media at work? Gasp!

The reality is this – it’s 2016 and everyone’s connected on social media. All the time. Social platforms like Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram have moved into business sectors because customers (you and me, and every other person) are engaged in those social channels constantly – it makes complete sense, right?

But, there’s another function of hashtags that you probably aren’t utilizing to its full potential (And yes, this hack will help you out at work).

Following hashtags on different social media platforms is the best way for you to stay connected with other passionate event planners – your peers.

Segmenting your social feeds by hashtags allows you insight into what’s trending in your industry. All you have to do is search for the hashtag term in the search bar!

Want to know where to get started? These are the top 10 hashtags that event professionals are buzzing about:
  1. #eventprofs
  2. #eventtech
  3. #meetingprofs
  4. #eventhour
  5. #eventtips
  6. #eventplanning
  7. #bizbash
  8. #b2bevents
