When you write the title of a book, you put it in italics. What about the title of an event, such as the Super Bowl or the World Cup? Of everything I looked at, this has the most information, but there is no mention of events.

    Welcome to Writing.SE! Can you provide an example of what it is you're trying to do? – F1Krazy Dec 17 '20 at 10:38

    You're asking about a style issue, and the answer (if one is possible) is therefore heavily dependent on the kind of writing you're doing and the way it might be published. Most style guides will provide some guidance. PS you don't have to put the title of a book in italics; while common practice, this again is a matter of style. – Chappo Hasn't Forgotten Monica Dec 18 '20 at 3:47

The names of events are generally just capitalized, just like most other proper nouns. There is no special typographical convention for them that is regularly followed.
