Yesterday, the Bulgarian city of Burgas announced Remotion Fest, a festival catering specifically to digital nomads, freelancers and IT specialists. The festival will be held between 21 and 25 June on the city’s central beach. The location will be equipped with high-speed internet and space for working, as well as indoor co-working spaces, themayor.eu reports.
According to a press statement from the city, the event will be part of the local Smart City strategy, trying to highlight the advantages of Burgas as a destination for people who can work from anywhere.
Additionally, as part of the strategy, the city has created a platform for linking companies and professionals in the area. Currently, Burgas boasts around 300 vacancies in the IT sector.
Burgas aims to change that by providing a specific event where people who can work from anywhere can come to the central beach, use the internet provided by the municipality, enjoy the Black Sea coast, complete their projects and network with like-minded people.
The area will also feature a bar, closed spaces, a chill zone, brainstorming areas and sports facilities so that people can navigate between working and relaxing.
