Focus: South Asia Expos – Turkey, Pakistan, Bangladesh

ILW offers limited EB-5 exhibition opportunities at the Turkey, Pakistan and Bangladesh Expos

February 19, 2018 - Istanbul, Turkey
February 21, 2018 - Lahore, Pakistan
February 23, 2018 - Dhaka, Bangladesh

Info on South Asia:

  • Since China investment is done significantly, exploring new markets is very important for EB5 issuers who intend to remain in the market. Turkey, Pakistan and Bangladesh are all countries with significant population numbers, with serious reasons to move families to USA.
  • Pakistan and Bangladesh are fully English-speaking countries - no translation needed even for most official documents. English is widely spoken in Turkey.
  • Turkish, Pakistani and Bangladeshi regulatory structures are more robust than China. These source of funds are easier to handle for USCIS as compared to China source of funds.
  • At ILW EB5 expos you will meet with direct investors, and/or with agents/intermediaries from the country and/or a combination of the above (all depending on local law)


  • The Expo hall includes a seminar theater with exhibit tables at the back of the room. (Speaking Opportunity included)
  • Please bring brochures, PowerPoint presentation, table displays and business cards.

EB-5 Issuers - $3,999 per city; Law Firms - $999 per city
(Inquire about Discounts and also about Platinum Level)
