About The Event Organizer

Bansko is becoming a major digital nomad hub. Coworking Bansko is the epicenter of the community here and has over 100 members now and a lot of nomads turned into Bansko residents. So we decided it is time to open up our cozy mountain village to a larger audience and organize a massive festival to celebrate the remote life, make new connections, learn something from each other and have fun.

For one week we will turn Bansko into a celebration of what‘s great about location independence. Inspiring speakers will share their insights and stories, we will enjoy everything the mountains have to offer and create connections among all participants.
