    Focus: Six City Persian Gulf Tour
    ILW will customize a Persian Gulf marketing event that will be exclusive to your organization and will be tailored to generate business relative to the EB-5 industry directly to your firm. Giving China's retrogression, it is wise to have an alternative source of investors. After conducting successful events in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Kuwait we are extending the journey to include the cities of Doha, Riyadh, and Jeddah on ILW's Six City Persian Gulf Tour.

    We research and target select regions and individuals of high net-worth status to guarantee an attendance of qualified individuals with the appropriate financial means of being able to participate in an EB-5 investment.

    What We Offer:

    • Guaranteed attendance of only qualified individuals of high net-worth status, specifically, individuals that meet the necessary criteria for the EB-5 program.
    • Finely tuned filtration and scrubbing process to ensure the proper quality of attendees and mitigation of EB-5 broker and "window shopper" attendance.
    • Complete strategic planning of all logistical implementation related to: travel schedule, program itinerary, refreshments, event marketing, event advertising, translation services, securing of venue, presentation aid assistance, post event follow ups and provision of contact information of attendees to presenting client post event.
    • 100% exclusivity. Unlike foreign "exposition" type settings, we only execute events for individual clients at a time in order to completely eliminate any instance of competition on the day of presentation.
    • Organic leads: we ensure to only invite brand new attendees for our events. This allows for exclusively and fresh leads as opposed to recycling contacts made from past.
    • An intimate ambiance: we purposely guarantee a minimum number of attendees ranging between 25-30 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 in immediately after the presentation portion which increases transparency for the potential investor.
    • A unique opportunity for professionals that participate in this service to convert as many possible investors without paying a single cent in commission or any relative fees as typically witnessed in the China EB-5 industry.
    • Fully ethical and SEC compliant services related solely to marketing which does not involve the selling or facilitation of security placement.
    • An extremely competitive and moderate fair and flat cost that covers every notion associated with this service other than travel costs.
