Focus: EB-5 Beijing Expo Deadline -
ILW Professional Services is proud to announce The EB-5 Investment Beijing Expo - December 15th and 16th 2012. This is the first expo of this size to be held in Beijing. ILW.COM has teamed with our Chinese partners and associates in order to host a premier EB-5 event in Beijing, China.

Through utility of our partnership in China, including The Beijing Immigration Association and Chinese individuals with excellent government connections relevant to the EB5 program (Entry/Exit Bureau) the gala will join investors, regional centers, brokers and attorneys under one roof for an unsurpassed networking experience.

Beijing holds a significant wealth concentration and is a city that has been overlooked over the past years in regards to generating new business in the EB-5 arena. We are anticipating this event to be the largest EB-5 expo the country has witnessed to date, due to heavy advertising via the Chinese equivalents of Google/Bing/Yahoo. ( and and other major media networks in China). There are expected to be over 3,000 Chinese investors, roughly 100 of the top Chinese Agents (50 of which have already pre-registered to attend) as well as US Regional Centers and American Attorney panels -- together to form a two day EB-5 networking and informative event with the major goal of generating new prospective business for US regional centers and attorneys alike. The EB-5 Investment Beijing Expo is co-sponsored by Mona Shah & Associates and Swift Overseas.

We are inviting regional centers to partake in this event and gain the opportunity to present and display their unique projects directly to prospective Chinese Investors and Brokers in what could very well be the most coveted and elegant EB-5 expo in China to date. We are also inviting law firms to exhibit at the event and attorneys to attend the event.

For more information about how to register for participation or to receive a quote, please call ILW Professional Services at (212) 545-0818 or send an email to and we will contact you as soon as feasibly possible.

Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to market your regional center and projects, we have received an overwhelming response thus far and registrations are filling up at a quick pace!
