Following the Money to New Real Estate Opportunities
Benjamin Franklin was America’s first international deal maker and today his face still means money. FIABCI-USA’s first International Symposium will follow in his spirit and show you how you can become an international real estate sensation.
General Session – Find the Money
The most important thing in a down cycle is not what’s for sale, but who is buying. This session will include an overview of real estate market transparency as well as the most recent performance of institutional real estate investments in the U.S., Canada and around the world. You will also find out the requirements of getting foreign nationals’ cash into the country and obtaining financing for foreign buyers. Finally you will get a look at what U.S. equity investors are buying overseas.

Coming to America remains the dream for many around to world. The EB-5 Visa program allows immigrant investors to obtain permanent resident status for certain investments. Find out how to work through the complicated process of developing a Region Center to qualify for this program.
B – Exporting Real Estate Services
While the trade deficit may make headlines, when it comes to real estate services the U.S. is the world’s leading exporter. Find out how U.S. companies and associations are leading the way to international market development by exporting first-class real estate knowledge and services.
A – Networking to New Business
While social media tools are great enhancements to your business networking, they are no substitute for face-to-face interaction. Local Chambers of Commerce, trade groups and immigrant communities often have events where you can meet people and develop relationships that lead to business. Learn how to use the knowledge you get from your FIABCI membership to open new doors.
B – Real Estate Investments into the U.S. from Canada and Brazil

Discover the extent and scope of inbound investments from Canada and Brazil from experts and important FIABCI leaders.
Closing General Session – Working with Today’s Chinese Investors
As China takes its place as an influential world power, Chinese investment is increasing exponentially everywhere including in the U.S. property market. Find out what Chinese real estate investors are looking for, how to find and work for these vanguard investors.
