A short, set phrase used with a “#” in front of it on certain social media platforms, which isused so attendees can easily search for conversations about the event on social media and others can follow along with what is happening at the event. The event hashtag is often set by the event organizers and publicized to all event attendees and “followers” on platforms. Where possible, it’s helpful to include it prominently in the event agenda and other event information materials.

To make your hashtag accessible to screen readers, ensure that each word is capitalized (e.g., #TheCSCCEVirtualEventHashtag).
