About Bansko Nomad Fest

Over the last 5 years Bansko has grown into a major digital nomad hub in Europe. Coworking Bansko is the epicenter of the community here and has about 100-150 members throughout the year. A lot of nomads turned into Bansko residents and many of our members are coming back to Bansko after exploring the world. Bansko Nomad Fest compresses our magic into one week where we showcase everything Bansko has to offer and share this experience with hundreds of new friends.

The structure of Bansko Nomad Fest is optimized for engagement: There will be conference talks, workshops and presentations in the mornings and then we use the afternoons for a range of fun activities in the nature around us as well as for unconference sessions and meetups. Everyone will have a choice of activities that are already included in your ticket like yoga, hiking, speed-dating etc. And there are additional premium activities like rafting, horse back riding, quad biking, a wine tour or mountain biking. The evenings are meant to network and enjoy tasty food as well as music. There will be also enough "free time" where you can enjoy Bansko with newly found friends or just work a bit.
Our focus is around the nomad lifestyle and remote work, so everyone will have engaging experiences regardless of where they are in their own journey.

It is several months until Bansko Nomad Fest, but please make sure to include Bansko into your travel plans for summer 2022

A wide range of topics ensure that everyone has a great time. We will announce the speakers over the course of the next months leading up to the event. We offer our early bird discounts to everyone who commits early without having all the details. Plus many unconference sessions and self-organized meetups around topics that you are passionate about.

Here is a rough outline of what the week looks like. The program will evolve until the event starts - and we have many participant driven activities that will be decided during the event:
