About the Bansko nomad community

Since Uwe Allgäuer and Matthias Zeitler arrived in Bansko and opened a coworking space in Dec 2016, Bansko is becoming more and more of a major digital nomad hub. Coworking Bansko is the epicenter of the community here and has over 100 members in the busiest months. A lot of nomads turned into Bansko residents. So 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.
The schedule will be refined over the next few months as we add more speakers and activities, but here is a rough outline of what to expect each day:

We will have talks, workshops and presentations in the mornings and then use the afternoons for a range of fun activities in the nature around us. You will have a choice of actvities that are already included in your ticket like yoga, hiking, speed-dating etc. Or you can pay for additional premium activities like quad biking, a wine tour or mountain biking. The evenings are meant to network and enjoy tasty food as well as music.
Our focus is around Start Up, Scale Up, Live Up topics, so everyone will have engaging experiences regardless of where they are in their own journey. In addition we will have 5 highlight tracks that will run in parallel: eCommerce, tax and residency, soulmating, online jobs and build a business. And for everyone that is looking for a remote job we organize a job fair to find the right opportunity.

What are the Nomad Fest plans in case the Corona pandemic is getting worse?
It is hard to predice the future, but we believe that the Corona virus restrictions will be over before end of June (probably much earlier).
Why? Because governments around the world are taking drastic steps to fight this virus, have prioritized the development of treatments and vacines. And air borne virus infections generally do not spread easily in warmer weather and higher humidity.

But if we are still quarantining whole cities and countries in June, then the world’s end is near anyways and we should celebrate the last days in the mountains. No worries.

We also have several add-ons to make it super easy and affordable to attend Bansko Nomad Fest 2020, you will be
able to book those after May 1st, 2020, so no need to pay them now.
