Buenos Aires to host first ever conference for Digital Nomads in Latin America

Tuesday 16 November 2021

A Buenos Aires City Hall initiative, the free hybrid event takes place on November 26 and 27, and will build on Buenos Aires’ status as the best destination in Latin America for travelers working remotely.

Buenos Aires, November 16, 2021. - With a focus on reactivating the visitor economy, the city of Buenos Aires is preparing to host the continent’s first ever conference for digital nomads, NomadsBA, on November 26 and 27, at the Usina del Arte in the historic La Boca neighborhood.

NomadsBA is also the first international conference the city will be hosting since the global pandemic and will see seasoned digital nomads and nomadic entrepreneurs from all over the world host talks and workshops on everything from business models and personal branding, to travel hacks, well-being and self-knowledge, and even cryptos. Key speakers include educator, entrepreneur, and adventurer Jimmy Naraine; real estate entrepreneur Matt Bowles (Maverick Investor Group); digital marketing expert and nomad community builder Rosanna Lopes; tech entrepreneur and unicorn founder Alec Oxenford (OLX Group, Letgo); and movie producer Axel Kutchevasky.

As part of the city government’s Digital Nomads Program, the hybrid (both remote and in-person) event is designed to be an annual feature and will put Buenos Aires firmly on the global digital nomad map, building on its status as the best city in Latin America for digital nomads, while helping to boost international tourism, especially among young professionals.

With newer travel trends like workations and growing global opportunities for remote working, more and more young professionals are seeking a lifestyle that balances work and financial flexibility with travel and leisure. Digital nomads are therefore becoming an increasingly important segment in today's travel market, and Buenos Aires is well placed to capitalize on this as it looks to attract 22,000 digital nomads to the city by 2023.

“We want young people all over the world to choose Buenos Aires to live, study or work. A city is better able to grow and develop when it has stronger international links and influences. Our city is an ideal destination for digital nomads: it has great culture and diversity, high human capital, and above all it is liveable, accessible and affordable,” said Horacio Rodríguez Larreta, Mayor of the City of Buenos Aires.

As well as the two-day NomadsBA event, the week leading up to the conference will see over 25 free activities held all over the city for nomads, including meet-ups, tours, coworking openings, yoga classes and cocktails.
