The EB-5 Regional Economic Development Advocacy Conference, hosted each spring in Washington, D.C. by Invest in the USA (IIUSA), is the longest running EB-5 conference attended by international investment and economic development professionals from around the world. Join us from April 12-14, 2015 to commemorate IIUSA’s 10-year anniversary as the industry trade association and the recent relocation of its headquarter offices to Washington D.C. The Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill will be the setting for this cutting-edge event combining the right balance of grassroots advocacy, advanced education, and business development opportunities.
At last year’s sold-out conference, IIUSA debuted the theme “EB-5 is Working” – a testament to the community-altering economic impact that EB-5 investment is responsible for all around the country. Attended by 450+ from five countries, the conference featured three keynote addresses from Congressional leaders, speakers representing five federal agencies, and eight comprehensive panels on trending EB-5 topics.IIUSA’s Annual Membership Meeting on April 12th will kick off the festivities. President K. David Andersson will deliver the State of the Association address and committee chairs will report on their collective work throughout 2014-2015. The meeting also includes director elections & other internal association business.
This year’s event is especially noteworthy as it represents an invaluable opportunity for EB-5 stakeholders to have their voices heard by Congressional lawmakers in advance of the EB-5 Regional Center Program’s “sunset date” of September 30, 2015. It is imperative that your local representatives are profoundly aware that their constituents are experiencing real-world impact from EB-5 Program’s investment dollars including increases jobs and tax revenue and economic revitalization.
Sign up before February 6th to take advantage of the early bird rate. We look forward to welcoming you to our nation’s capitol for what promises to be the EB-5 Conference of year!
