We have successfully planned and executed these EB-5 marketing events in two cities in India as well as five separate events in Dubai, thus far in 2013.

We specifically research and target select regions as well as individuals of high net-worth status and guarantee the attendance of qualified individuals with the appropriate financial means of being able to participate in an EB-5 investment, furthermore, individuals that express immediate interest in immigrating to the United States through utility of the EB-5 program.

What We Offer:

  • Guaranteed attendance of only qualified individuals of high net-worth status, in specific, individuals that meet the necessary criteria for the EB-5 program.

  • Complete strategic planning of all logistical implementation related to: travel schedule, hotel accommodations, program itinerary, refreshments, event marketing, event advertising, translation services, securing of venue, presentation aid assistance, post event follow ups and provision of contact information of attendees to presenting client post event.
  • 100% exclusivity: unlike foreign "exposition" type settings, we only execute events for individual clients at a time in order to completely eliminate any instance of competition on the day of presentation.
  • Organic leads: we ensure to only invite brand new attendees for our events in order to exclusively provide our clients with fresh leads as opposed to recycling contacts made from past.
  • An intimate ambiance: we purposely guarantee a minimum number of attendees ranging between 25-30 attendees in total per event in order to ensure all questions are answered thoroughly and that direct contact is established between the presenter and potential investor. In addition, we ensure that each potential investor has an opportunity to sit down with the presenter in a private 1 on 1 sit down in immediately after the presentation portion which increases transparency for the potential investor.
  • A unique opportunity for professionals that participate in this service to convert as many possible investors without paying a single cent in commission or any relative fees as typically witnessed in the Beijing EB-5 industry.
  • Fully ethical and SEC compliant services related solely to marketing which does not involve the selling or facilitation of security placement.
  • An extremely competitive and moderate fair and flat cost that covers every notion associated with this service other than the departure and return flight from the U.S. to the overseas destination.

Please be advised, our services are not limited to EB-5 business, attorneys seeking EB-1, EB-2 and EB-3 business are welcome to contact us as we are capable of executing this precise service without sole limitation related to EB-5.
