Dubrovnik announces ‘Work. Location. Culture.’ Remote Work Conference in May

March 14, 2022 – The story of Dubrovnik’s digital nomad continues, as does the work. Location. Culture. The conference is announced, bringing work from anywhere to absolutely everywhere.

Good things are happening in the Pearl of the Adriatic.

A new initiative to reposition the iconic Croatian city, also known to millions as Kings Landing, is already paying handsome dividends.

Media poster boy for overtourism in 2017, Dubrovnik is now making headlines for very different reasons. Dubrovnik’s decision to explore the remote working route has propelled itself into an increasingly popular digital nomad destination. In partnership with Saltwater Nomads and Total Croatia News, the City of Dubrovnik and Dubrovnik Tourist Board hosted Croatia’s first-ever Digital Nomads Conference in October 2020, Dubrovnik for Digital Nomads, a conference that attracted considerable worldwide attention, including a mention in the Washington Poster.


This was followed in April 2021 with the Dubrovnik Digital Nomads in Residence programme, the first of its kind in the world, in which the destination and its community co-created a future strategy for digital nomad tourism, in partnership with 10 resident nomads who contributed their know-how as city guests for 4 weeks.
