So, put your hats and sunglasses on, tighten up your shoelaces and gallop your way up to the Bansko Nomad Fest 2022.

From June 26 to July 3, Bansko, Bulgaria will attract hundreds of digital nomads and remote workers from all over the world to celebrate the location-independent lifestyle and nomad mindset. Hundreds of nomads, remote workers, and freelancers will take over the beautiful town in Bulgaria for a mix of presentations, workshops, sports, mindfulness, and nature.

In the 7 days of Bansko Nomad Fest, the participants will have the opportunity to hear 70 guest speakers sharing their knowledge, learnings, and personal stories and find inspiration from the insightful talks, various workshops, and bonus activities. The program is structured to address topics of importance like Finding and Starting Remote Work, The Successful Nomad Formula, Benefits and Challenges of the Nomad Lifestyle, Managing Your Own Business and Finances, Fundraising, Building Productivity Routines, E-Commerce, Retail Investing Secrets, Course Creation, and many more.

A tribe gathering wouldn’t be the same without time for exploration and fun. Not forgetting the work-hard-play-hard formula, the organizers have prepared activities and different experiences for the participants in between the knowledge-saturated sessions. Hiking, rafting, mountain biking, speed dating, wine tours, and more will give an opportunity to dive deeper into the synergy of a community come together in the beauty of the Bulgarian nature and the mountains’ inwardness.
