IIUSA is honored to announce its partnership with the Johannesburg Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JCCI). The partnership not only facilitates EB-5 education and international business development it also opens the door for IIUSA’s first event Global Banquet Series in South Africa which the Association will be hosting in partnership with the JCCI this coming March.
The IIUSA Global Banquet Series is the cornerstone of IIUSA’s international education and business development efforts. To date, the series has been hosted in China, Vietnam, India, South Korea, the UAE and most recently Taiwan. Looking ahead to the 2020 slate of events were are excited to continue to expand the series to emerging markets around the globe, South Africa included. However, as we look to enter new markets we are cognizant of the inherent challenges and opportunities that each provides.
To that end, the Association works hard to formalize partnerships with like-minded organizations around the world to ensure our efforts have maximum impact. Established in 1890 with the express goal of facilitating international trade and investment between South Africa and the world, the JCCI is well versed in delivering high-quality business development to its members and we could think of no better partner to work with for this important event. We are confident that the partnership will ensure that IIUSA and our members are able to establish strong connections in South Africa and conversely that the emerging investor market in South Africa stays well informed and up to date on all things EB-5. On behalf of both IIUSA and the JCCI we look forward to welcoming you to Johannesburg this spring!
Additional event details will be announced in the coming weeks so please stay tuned. In the interim, if you are interested in learning more about the event or discussing sponsorships in greater detail please contact IIUSA Director of Events & Business Development, McKenzie Penton, or give us a call at (202) 795-9667.
