Almost every one of us is a digital nomad. The strong dependency we have towards technology, particularly on smartphones, is a proof that we are living in the modern world – where we can bring work wherever we go while exploring the world at the same time. The power of the internet has connected everyone with almost anything. Many successful digital nomads have proven that working and travelling the world are possible, such as Matthew Kepnes of Nomadic Matt, Jodi Ettenberg of Legal Nomads, and Stuart McDonald of Travel Fish.

“I truly wake up every day thankful that I’ve been able to build a life around the things I love,” said seasoned traveller and lawyer Jodi Ettenberg.

However, the transition is often not easy for many. It takes plenty of preparation, such as where to go and what to do in the next destination to maximise your stay. Check out one of our articles on how events might help you get started as a digital nomad.

Digital Nomad Events in 2016

If you already are a digital nomad, then here is a list of events you shouldn’t miss this year from June to December 2016 to help you prepare ahead:



Unlike other months, June has plenty of events for the travelling entrepreneurs. Of course, do not miss the annual Refuga Digital Nomads Festival in Umbria, Italy. It is attended by a group of entrepreneurs working while travelling the globe. There are plenty of destinations they offer, including Kilimanjaro in Africa, Thailand, Spain and Costa Rica. Attendees across the world join a bonfire talk, share knowledge, celebrate breaking free. Their next trip to Italy will be from June 25 to July 1. Do not miss visiting magnificent Rome during your short stay in Italy, where you and your new-found friends can enjoy some of the best coffee and café culture in the world. In fact, it’s called the ‘home of espresso,’ but there are some coffee break rules in Rome, such as no cappuccino after 11 am and no funky orders like an additional hazelnut shot in your coffee. But, don’t worry the result is still the best brew. This will make your stay in Italy more memorable and pleasant.



In July, you can fly to Romania and join the OFFice2Travel workation event in the gothic city of Brasove in Transylvania. From July 5-11, a selected group of digital nomads will embark on a seven-day journey to this wonderful city while staying in a private historic villa with breakfast and special dinners. Only 12 candidates will experience this one-of-a-kind Coworking camp in Europe. The staycation is placed in a 5-star mansion that offers the convenience of a mansion and a villa. Aside from this event, one can also visit the infamous Dracula’s castle in Bran, check out the summer residence of the Romanian royal family (Peles Castle), or try outdoor adventures from hiking, climbing, and Tyrolean traverse in your week stay.

Explore some new places and connect with Digital Nomads in 2016


OFFice2Travel will once again hold an event for on-the-go workers in the mountainous view of the Brasov city in August. Entitled ‘Mountain Workation,’ 10 selected digital nomads will be staying in a private villa located in the Carpathian mountains for a week (August 20-26). This coworking experience will allow one to connect with other like-minded people, escape the noise of the city, enjoy the beautiful landscape, and experience the best fresh air and nature one can find in the world. Based on a tourism source in Romania, travellers can find the Oas and Harghita range in this area, which is the ‘longest volcanic mountain chain in Europe.’ Tourists can see volcanic necks and cones, while some ranges with craters that are still preserved.
