    #62 Addressing the Digital Nomads market - Portugal Example (CWE23)

    #62 Addressing the Digital Nomads market - Portugal Example (CWE23)

    Portugal has become a magnet for digital nomads who more and more consider long stays in the country to enjoy the Portuguese lifestyle. This growing population of international workers needs to integrate into the local economy. What are the best practices and best approaches to do so seen by Portugal experts and practitioners? The conversation will be the opportunity to go through it addressing all the benefits and challenges. Here are some questions the participants will be asked: What initiatives can coworking spaces implement to help integrate remote and hybrid workers into local communities? Should coworking spaces actively communicate about the net economic benefits that international workers bring, or should this remain a task for the authorities? How important the positive economic impact can be for the local economy? Could it bring international new opportunities for Portugal workers, SMEs, and startups? Can coworking spaces provide safe spaces for skilled refugees seeking to join the workforce? What role do language support and communication play in facilitating the integration of foreign digital nomads? How can coworking spaces measure the success of their efforts in integrating foreign digital nomads? The rise of remote work and hybrid work models has enabled workers to break free from the constraints of location and work from anywhere. However, as the number of remote workers continues to increase, new challenges have emerged.

Why? How? How much? What are the challenges? In this discussion, we will look for the perspectives of both the Shopping Centres' owners and the coworking operators.
