Focus: International Students Expos in USA
International students are coming to the US in dramatically increased numbers. The explosion in Chinese, Indian and Korean students started less than a decade ago and continues. For EB-5 purposes students offer good prospects. We have been conducting events since 2014 educating students on EB-5 in New York, Washington DC, Massachusetts, Michigan and California. We are expanding these events to other locations in 2017 to cover the entire USA. For each city we promote the event to multiple campuses across the metropolitan region; this can vary from ten to twenty campuses per city. These are 1 day events that require a short single night stay trip from the sponsoring Regional Center or law firm. During the educational event covering the students' immigration options the sponsor makes a short presentation about their Regional Center or law firm. The event structure allows for plenty of networking opportunities with students. These events are available only to Regional Centers that use Regulation-D or to law firms, and we require clients to consult a securities attorney before signing up for these events.

Upcoming International Student Expos:
Los Angeles, CA - March 18, 2017
New York, NY - March 25, 2017
Houston, TX - April 8, 2017
Seattle, WA - May 6, 2017
Washington, DC - June 3, 2017
New York, NY - June 17, 2017

All Day Expo featuring Exhibit Hall and frequent short seminars. Participation includes distribution of all marketing materials, an exhibit table and 2 speaking slots.

Regional Center Price: $1999 per city
Law Firm Price: $999 per city
