Thanks to technological improvements, remote work is now a reality for a greater number of professionals, allowing them to work from anywhere, whether from home or anywhere in the world. These traveling workers, known as digital nomads, benefit from the various advantages of cheaper destinations compared to their place of origin.
Both teleworkers and digital nomads are growing a segment that is developing at the same pace as the market and its needs: coliving, coworking, geo-arbitrage…
In this context, the I International Congress Telework and Digital Nomads is held, which aims to give voice to entrepreneurs and businessmen, bringing together their interests, listening and learning from experts in the field, and working together with them (institutions and local businessmen) to put Alicante on the map as a destination for telework and digital nomads, both nationally and internationally.
The conference will include the participation of our Director of Communication, Mayte Vañó, who will present the Digital District project at the round table on the current situation of the sector in Alicante.
