From 13-20 November a selected group of local and international entrepreneurs and remote working professionals will gather together for a unique interactive networking event in Caniço, Madeira Island.
The Nomad Island fest is an eight-day event, gathering professionals from all over the world with the intention to set a mark within the global digital nomad and remote work industry.
This event will stand out by its interactive format, held in Europe’s fastest growing Remote Work and Digital Nomad destination: Madeira Island.
Building the foundation for this annually global network event
Michelle Maree, the founder of The Nomad Escape said: “We are building the foundation of a unique interactive global network event for online entrepreneurs and remote working professionals, which will annually return and where we aim to gather 500+ professionals in a popular remote work hub, in collaboration with partners with shared values. This will be the first, pocket edition, to refine the program for future events.”
During the pandemic the interest for Business and Self-Development programs tripled. This shows how much people feel isolated while working remotely and community is more important than ever.
The community of Alumni Escapers want to gather and meet people offline again, and it is time to offer this possibility to them.
Although many companies allowed their employees to work remotely before the Covid-19 pandemic, it became the new normal after this.
As the pandemic spread, forcing the market to go into lockdown in many countries, businesses were left with no other option than to work remotely. As a result, there has been a massive increase in the number of remote workers since 2020.
A truly interactive event, which will combine business, networking and wellness, relaxation and fun.
A diversity of activities will bring connections, skill-sharing, and peer-to-peer mentoring to the table: from Match Making programs, Business brainstorm sessions, to life talks, expert workshops, and more. Daily networking sessions will be facilitated by the team and create new professional connections. The participants can book a package with accommodation and meals included, staying in the beautiful wellness resort Quinta Splendida and having access to fitness and vitality programs.
It’s a business-focussed event, where professionals share skills and grow their network in an informal, playful way, which embraces the location-independent lifestyle. It will tackle the challenges of remote workers working individually on their projects and businesses and helps them to discuss ideas and bottlenecks with like-minded professionals.
Besides this, the event will be focussed on having fun and The Nomad Escape will bring in DJ’s, music and dance workshops to help everyone unplug from the daily routine. You can apply here to join the event.
