FAQs

QDo I need a visa in my passport to enter Brazil?

A. If you have a USA passport you will probably need a visa.

Please visit http://miami.itamaraty.gov.br/en-us/visas_general_information.xml to verify and review how to obtain the appropriate documentation.

Q. Where should I stay?

A. If you are unfamiliar with the area, we would suggest staying in or close to the hotel that the expo will be held in as it will be far more convenient for you.  If you plan to stay longer and enjoy the sites, tours and excursions can be arranged from the hotel.

Q. Is it a must to speak Portuguese?

A. The event’s organizers strongly suggest that you bring a Portuguese speaking representative in since many Brazilian expo attendees will not be bi-lingual and expect to communicate in Portuguese only.

QHow many exhibitors will be there?

A. We are focused heavily this year on Florida and intend to have approximately 20 exhibitors. There may be companies from New York & California but the total size will be limited so once we have reached this capacity, we will limit participation. In future shows we will gradually grow the size at a controlled pace.

Q. How many attendees can I expect?

A. The number of exhibitors will be limited this year in orderto allow for a quality show that will benefit exhibitors.  Through the National press office, magazines, newspapers, partnerships, and industry support, and the Brazilian interest in US (in particular Florida) real estate investment we are confident there will be more than 1.000 attendees.

Investir USA Expo organizers in Brazil and Florida:

The partner in Brazil is Taurus Marketing http://www.taurusmarketing.com.br/ with Daniel Rosenthal as company director.  Daniel is the pre-eminent expert on the Brazilian real estate industry and has arranged National real estate expos (although not for International property) in Brazil for many years. He works very closely with the Brazilian real estate associations, the National press office, and the entire Brazilian real estate industry.  In Florida, the organizer is ORB International through its specialty division, Floridalink with Justine Assal at the helm.  http://orbmarketingsolutions.com/floridalink/ Floridalink arranges USA/Florida pavilions in the UK, Brazil, Colombia, Netherlands, Russia and other countries. ConXglobal, www.conxglobal.com, an International property portal that promotes marketing of International real estate, is a big part of Orb’s online industry and consumer reach.

The organizers are confident of the marketing efforts and partnerships in place but cannot estimate the attendance this first year. We will therefore simply state in excess of 1000 and anticipate that exhibitors will leave happy and booking ahead for year 3.
