Comment: 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.
  • Please bring brochures, PowerPoint presentation, table displays and business cards.

ILW offers limited EB-5 exhibition opportunities at the Dubai & Turkey Expos

Info about Turkey:

  • Turkey has 80 million people, 18th largest country in the world. Turkey is NOT a poor country, its GDP is $751 billion, also 18th largest in the world (in other words, it has a large number of millionaires and deca-millionaires).
  • ILW has conducted 3 events in Turkey in the last 2 years. We work with Turkish law firms (these do NOT file any US immigration petitions, nor do they provide any US immigration advice, but they can and do assist with local Turkish law matters).
  • Due to recent events, Turkey EB5 investments in 2017 have exploded, making Turkey an important EB5 market for Regional Centers.

Info about Dubai:

  • Dubai is a large EB-5 market and a way of accessing high net worth expats from Iran/Middle East, India and Pakistan.
  • ILW has done over a dozen EB-5 events in Dubai for over 3 years.
  • Many expats who have made considerable money in Dubai/Middle East are looking for immigration alternatives given the instability in the region.

Format for Turkey and Dubai:

  • All Day Expo featuring Exhibit Hall and frequent short seminars.
  • Please bring brochures, PowerPoint presentation, table displays and business cards.
