Digital Nomad Events 2023 – Updated

I wasn’t able to update this blog post for over two years due to the pandemic. But *drumroll* digital nomad events are finally back and I did my best to find the ones that are most likely going to take place this year:

Global Coworking Unconference Conference

19-21 April 2023, Chicago, USA

Price: starts at $599

The Global Coworking Unconference Conference, short GCUC, brings together decision-makers and game-changers in the coworking and flexible workspace industry. Here you get expert insights, visionary conversations, educational programming, and a showcase of industry-leading partners. On top of that, you get plenty of opportunities for connection with like-minded people.

The goal is to help support and grow the industry by meeting leaders like you or unlike you and having meaningful conversations with others.

Running Remote Conference

25-26 April 2023, Lisbon, Portugal

Price: starts at $559 (= 8+ passes)

The Running Remote Conference is surely one of the world’s largest remote work conferences with more than 300 speakers. It is the perfect place for everyone who is running a remote team or planning on starting one. You will get practical advice from founders, leaders, and project managers about successfully building and managing distributed teams.

Learn actionable strategies and tactics that will help you grow your remote team and shape the future of work.

Nomad Cruise

Spring 2023

Price: tbd

Nomad Cruise is another very popular digital nomad event. It brings over 150 remote working professionals together on a cruise ship for a trip across the sea. This trip doesn’t only cover accommodation and all meals but also all drinks.

You can participate in various leisure, entertainment, and sports activities and make meaningful connections with fellow nomads. Join organized talks, meet-ups, workshops, and masterminds to learn, share, create and connect while being unplugged during the program.

Although there is no further information out, yet, the latest Instagram post says “Spring 2023 – Who’s ready?” So let’s hope for the best.

Bansko Nomad Fest

25 June – 2 July 2020, Bansko, Bulgaria

Price: starts at €139

The Bansko Nomad Fest brings together more than 700 remote workers, freelancers, and nomads to celebrate the location-independent lifestyle and the nomad mindset. Get ready to enjoy a mix of conference talks, workshops, presentations, and activities, like speed dating, yoga, or quad biking.

Since Bansko is definitely one of the most popular digital nomad cities out there, it makes perfect sense to visit the city and combine your stay with meeting many like-minded people during the digital nomad event.

The Nomad World Fest

9-15 October 2023, Albufeira, Algarve, Portugal

Price: starts at €59

The Nomad World Fest is an event that brings together the brightest minds in digital nomadism and remote work to celebrate the freedom and connection of this lifestyle, while exploring a new destination that seeks to attract the digital nomad community.

This year’s conference is set in the beautiful coastal city of Albufeira, Algarve, known for its stunning beaches, global accessibility, and vibrant cultural scene.

The lineup includes Dave Williams (NomadX), Gonçalo Hall (Remote Work Movement), Kate Shifman (AOMA Coliving + Coworking), and many more.

Nomad Capitalist Live

2023 (you can join the waiting list)

Price: tba

The Nomad Capitalist Live is a premier gathering that has previously hosted speakers like Robert Kiyosaki (author of “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”), Mikheil Saakashvili (former president of Georgia), or Nigel Farage (“Mr. Brexit”, a former member of European Parliament). That means you get to meet and network with top-caliber attendees.

You also learn about things like cheap second passports, offshore banks, the best places to live, tax incentives, and real estate deals.

Virtual Working Summit

2023, online

Price: Free

The Virtual Working Summit is one of the few digital nomad events where you don’t even have to leave your house to attend – it’s all online! During several days you will hear audio interviews with inspiring virtual leaders and you also get the chance to connect and interact with other participants.

The event welcomes everyone who works with clients remotely, teleworkers, or people who manage projects or teams across several countries.

7in7 Digital Nomad Conference


Price: tbd

This is one of 7 conferences in 7 years on 7 continents. It all started in 2015 and today the 7in7 is already one of the most popular digital nomad events. Since it had to pause due to the pandemic, I’m assuming (and hoping) there is going to be an event again in 2023.

The aim of this event is to shape the future of location independence and to create a truly location-independent life, anything from nomad dating to having kids on the road to building a remote team. Every experienced digital nomad is invited to listen to influential speakers, such as CEOs or entrepreneurs, while they share their knowledge. Participate in workshops, breakouts, Q&A sessions, meetups, or even volunteer in local activities.

Digital Nomad Events: Get Ready!

I know, it’s not as many events as there used to be before the pandemic. But the ones that do take place, sound quite promising.

One thing is clear: These digital nomad events will surely have something to offer for all kinds of location-independent professionals and nomads. I will definitely join one or two myself. Would be great to catch up with many of you! :)

Do you know any other events, like conferences or workshops, in 2023 that would be great for digital nomads? Or are you organizing a major event and want me to list it in the article, too? Let me know in the comment section below!
