Focus: EB-5 Investors from Persian Gulf and Middle East
ILW will customize a Persian Gulf marketing event that will be exclusive to your organization and will be tailored to generate EB5 business directly to your firm. Given China's retrogression, it is wise to have an alternative source of investors. After conducting several successful events in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait, Doha, Manama, Muscat, Istanbul, Jeddah, Riyadh and other important cities, we are offering Persian Gulf - Middle East Tours. What we Offer

  • Guaranteed attendance of only screened individuals of high net-worth status, specifically, individuals that meet the necessary criteria for the EB-5 program
  • Finely tuned filtration and scrubbing process to ensure the proper quality of attendees
  • Complete strategic planning and all logistical implementation related to: travel schedule, 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 "exposition" type settings, we only execute events for one client at a time in order to completely eliminate any instance of competition on the day of presentation
  • Organic leads: we ensure only brand new attendees for our events. This allows for exclusively fresh leads as opposed to recycling contacts made from past
  • An intimate ambiance: we purposely guarantee a minimum of 25 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 immediately after the presentation portion which increases connection with 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 contingent fees as typically witnessed in the China EB-5 industry
  • Fully ethical and SEC compliant services related solely to marketing which does not involve the selling of a security
  • An extremely competitive and moderate fair and flat cost that covers every notion associated with this service other than your travel costs
