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.

  • 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
