Info on Turkey Expo:

  • Since China investment is down significantly, finding new markets is very important for EB5 issuers who intend to remain in the market. Turkey is the fastest growing of the smaller EB5 markets, has significant population, and serious reasons to move families to USA. English is widely spoken in Turkey.
  • 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).

Format:

  • 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
