The number one Conference for

Jan 18 - 21, 2019

Chiang Mai, Thailand

What is the Nomad Summit?

It's the conference for digital nomads, those who want to live differently, escape the rat race and the 9-5. It's for those who want to live free and take charge for their own lives, travel the world, be their own boss and start living their passions and making their dreams reality. 

The first Nomad Summit was organized in January 2015 in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Ever since, it became the central annual event for hundreds location independent entrepreneurs, online business owners, freelancers, remote workers and those who have read the 4-hour workweek and strive to make it happen. 

Coming to the Nomad Summit is a journey for those who want to be surrounded by like-minded thinkers and those who either already or dream about living a life of travel, location independence and freedom from their 9-5.
