Meet Custodians of Trusted Relationships for High New Worth Foreigners

Many EB-5 and private equity investments from overseas have come through relationships maintained in Los Angeles, New York and Miami. Los Angeles, New York and Miami are the right cities to reach professionals who have relationships with high net worth individuals from many countries. Finding these professionals in the US instead of visiting countries throughout the world saves travel costs, is safer and saves time.

You will meet immigration attorneys, real estate professionals and financial professionals who have relationships with high net worth individuals from many countries. You will speak to the assembled professionals. (There will be no investors at the meeting.)

The Expo hall will include a seminar theater with display tables at the back of the room for exhibitors. Please bring brochures, PowerPoint presentation, table displays and business cards.
