EB-5 Investor Based Immigration Conference (CA and FL)

With the most well-known professionals in the field speaking, you will learn all about the U.S. EB-5 Investor Based Immigration Program and the opportunities it presents.

The EB-5 Visa Program is a way for a foreign investor to obtain a visa faster than most other options.  Under this program, entrepreneurs (and their spouses and unmarried children under 21) are eligible to apply for a green card (permanent residence) if they meet certain investment criteria.

EB-5 program is an excellent source of funds for businesses, developers, and entrepreneurs. It is a lucrative practice area for attorneys. And it is something city and county development departments should explore when thinking about their community’s development and growth.

This program includes the latest updates to legislation and will discuss the changes anticipated to be made by the legislature prior to the conference.

The first day of this program will provide some basic background of the EB-5 program and procedures. Later in the afternoon and on Day Two you will learn about critical advanced topics and issues.

You can attend either day or both.

 

Los Angeles Program: A special rate of $199 per night has been negotiated with our venue, the DoubleTree Hotel Downtown (recently renovated). Please use this link or call (800) 222-TREE (mention “Pincus Group Rate”) to make your reservations by September 12th.
