Join us for this amazing in-person show and tell with our guest speaker Matthias Zeitler, who will share his experience in community building, and more specifically - building a coliving space in Bulgaria!

About this event

In this keynote, Matthias Zeitler will share his journey in transforming an old hotel in Semkovo into a 200-unit coliving space that is owned by the community. He will talk about the challenges of expanding a community and the strategies he learned from building Bansko into one of the leading nomad destinations over the last years.

Coliving is a growing trend among digital nomads and remote workers, and it offers many benefits, including cost savings, social connections, and a sense of community.

Matthias will share his insights on the benefits of coliving, and his vision to create a welcoming and supportive environment, a "Nomad Utopia".

At the end of the event we will have some time also to network and connect with fellow community professionals in Bulgaria.
