In the era of COVID-19, work from home became the new normal for many. Stats show that, in some countries the percentage of employees working from home in the last 2 years exceeded 30%. And as many as 98% of those, don’t want to go back to the office.
The idea of working from home for many sparked another idea of “working from anywhere”. If my work can be done from my home, it can certainly be done from a hotel with sea view or an Airbnb in the mountains; all I need is an internet connection.
That’s the idea digital nomads hacked a long time ago. As long as I have internet, and my job can be done online, which is the case for countless jobs nowadays, then why not do it while I travel, experience and see the world?
If you are a digital nomad, or you are considering becoming one, or just even remotely interested in the revolutionary changes in the way we go by our jobs, good news! The Work Travel Summit is here.
This is an event inspired by the current state of affairs. If the era of COVID taught us anything about our jobs, it is that remote work is here to stay.
With all these changes happening in regards to work, and the concept of the workplace; you need the tools and experience to adapt to these changes. You need to have all the information that will allow you to make a decision about how you really want to work.
This is where the Work Travel Summit comes in. The event’s goal is to bring together all the different perspectives about work, its future and global mobility.
When is the event and where?
The event will take place between 9 and 12 June. Online.
The vision of the summit touches the life of every employee, employer, entrepreneur and freelancer. As the summit aims to discuss a future of work, where we have more freedom and flexibility, sustainability in the way we do business and more adventure and experience in our lives.
Work takes up a major part of your life. Just imagine if you can learn to optimize it, how much that would help you live the life you want, achieve your goals and have a good time and enriching experiences all the while.
Why should I attend?

If you are thinking about becoming a digital nomad, the event will give you the chance to see and hear the experience of people who took this step. You can learn everything you need to know about how, and where to start and what to consider.
