Remote Work Conferences that Address the Future of Work

Contents

It might sound counterintuitive, but face-to-face conferences can be an important component of your remote career. Remote work conferences offer opportunities for you to network and to learn about important issues related to distance work. Additionally, surrounding yourself with new people and ideas can energize you, boost your creativity, and keep you from feeling isolated.

While there aren’t that many conferences that are solely dedicated to the benefits and challenges of location independent work, the four remote work conferences listed below are excellent places to start.

Remote Work Conferences

TRaD Works Forum

One example of a remote work conference is the TRaD Works forum, being held this week (September 27-29) in Washington, DC. TRaD stands for Telecommuting, Remote, and Distributed work, and the forum will feature speakers from a wide range of backgrounds. Some of the featured speakers include:

From the event website:

The TRaD Works Forum will redefine traditional work by facilitating and inspiring conversations between leaders of Fortune 500 companies, fast-growing virtual companies, and “future of work” thought leaders. Not only will discussions review the opportunities, benefits, and challenges pertaining to telecommuting, remote, and distributed teams, the conversation will also be focused on the tactical and actionable frameworks teams use to scale up and optimize their initiatives.

Tickets are by invitation only.

DNX Global is a conference for digital nomads. Topics from this year’s event included:

  • Lifestyle Design and Locational Strategies for Digital Nomads

We find a consultative process is most effective for companies with 50 or more employees and a rapid process is more impactful for companies with fewer than 50 employees.
