Tags must be added to each Event that you want to appear in the Listing Page and need to match exactly in order to be shown to Invitees. 

Reminder: EventBuilder software will recognize the following non-alphanumeric characters: # (hashtag or pound sign) and _ (underscore). Tags cannot have spaces and are not case sensitive.

Search Filter Settings provide Organizers the flexibility to broaden or narrow Invitee search results and sort them. Choices for filtering include:

Tags - Invitees can search for events by specific Tags that Organizers have chosen to include.
Event Type - Enabling the Event Type filter provides Invitees with results based on the types of events Organizers have made available, such as On-Demand, Streaming Mode, etc.
Start Date/End Date - Enabling Search Start Date and/or Search End Date sorts results accordingly, so Invitees can see quickly when the event(s) they are interested in are occurring.
