2017 Mumbai EB-5 & Investment Immigration Expo
October 4-5, 2017
The St. Regis Mumbai
Responding to the buzzing EB-5 market in India, one of the fastest growing global markets with a rapidly increasing number of EB-5 applicants, EB5 Investors Magazine hosted the sold-out 2017 Mumbai EB-5 & Investment Immigration Expo on October 4-5. More than 30 panelists and 50 sponsors shared industry insights and showcased their brands during the event.
Over 400 attorneys, EB-5 regional centers, foreign intermediaries, international developers and service providers gathered at The St. Regis Mumbai for the event, which kicked off with a cocktail reception at the luxury rooftop reception hall of the hotel. There, guests networked with professionals from around the globe. The reception was followed by a full-day expo featuring educational, interactive panels moderated by professionals experienced in the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program and global investment immigration programs. Panels highlighted the latest information about the EB-5 process and future for Indian investors, due diligence strategies, direct investments versus regional center investments, source of funds and tax issues.
Expo participants had the chance to network and connect with EB-5 professionals, gain market knowledge and reach out to specialized investment immigration professionals to grow their business.
“I thought the EB-5 & Investment Immigration Expo in Mumbai was a very informative and important introduction into the Indian market,” said Rakesh Patel of The Patel Law Group.?“From industry leaders to investors, this was a great opportunity for all to learn about the Indian market and the wonderful opportunities it has to offer.?I was honored to be a part of it and look forward to more great work in India.”
Aristos Eliades of Pafilia Property Developers Ltd agreed.
“It was a well-organized event, with a distinguished list of participants, both as speakers and as attendees,” he said. “For our company, it was a very good first step towards the very promising market of India and we do hope that this was just the beginning for a series of successful events organized by “EB-5 Investors” for India.”?
Mitchell Wexler, partner at Fragomen, said it was "a superb conference."
"Quite a feat to assemble in Mumbai a variety of over 400 stakeholders in our EB-5 ecosystem," said Mitchell Wexler from Fragomen Worldwide. "Not only were the sessions extremely informative but the networking opportunities were quite valuable as well."
The next opportunity to network with EB-5 professionals and sponsor with EB5 Investors Magazine is the 2018 Las Vegas EB-5 & Global Investment Immigration Convention on January 26-27. The two-day networking and educational event, which became the EB-5 industry’s most-attended domestic event in 2016 with more than 1,000 attendees, will be a gathering of broker-dealers, developers, immigration and securities attorneys, migration agents, regional centers and other prominent EB-5 and citizenship-by-investment program stakeholders.
