Digital Nomad Summit (DNS) Philippines 2022
Harbin DNS 2022 will be an annual event highlighting the best of the Philippines for Digital Nomads happening on October 25-28, 2022 in Boracay Island Philippines. We will showcase why digital nomads from around the world consider Philippines as their home away home.
The Philippines’ Unique Opportunity
Harbin knows that the Philippines will be one of the key destinations for digital nomad travelers. With English spoken widely, there is no language barrier for US customers who comprise the majority of the new digital nomads.
The Philippines is still relatively inexpensive with regards to cost of living and this is an important differentiator as digital nomads move out of very expensive cities in the United States like San Francisco and New York.
The Harbin Protocol
Harbin is an exclusive web3 community of digital nomads, tech executives, and crypto traders. They allow their members the ability to live and work in some of the most beautiful places in the world. They partner with hotels, airlines and other personal services to make sure that the life of a digital nomad is taken care of.
The economic value of digital nomads is about $50,000 per year. Attracting these high-value tourists is seen as one of the key elements in the recovery of the whole tourism industry. Unfortunately, Philippines is not seen as a major destination of these types of customers. They cited perceived "slow" internet and some security issues as main reason for the country to the underperform compared to its regional peers.
Here what our past guests have to say
Harbin believes that the Philippines should be one of the key
destinations for this new type of travelers.
The internet infrastructure is improving and also, since Harbin has been partnering with top resorts and hotels; these companies have already invested heavily into improving their IT infrastructure.
