In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Salma Jafri talks with Jeremy Vest, the founder of Video Marketing World, about hosting your first event.

Moreover, when choosing venues and negotiating with the people over price, consider having a middle man to help you out. To nab the best deal without worrying about every penny, finding someone to negotiate for the space can be extremely helpful.

And the main challenge that comes up for Vest? It often comes down to getting the word out. A good way to create some interest around your event is focusing on differentiating your particular event from others.
