on 7 continents
Our women-led team puts on conferences where the majority of speakers, volunteers, and attendees are women.
We make sure every part of our conference is a safe space for all sexualities and gender expressions.
Here’s our Code of Conduct.
Why Should I Come?
Why come to 7in7? It’s…
- EXCLUSIVELY for experienced nomads! Only people who have been location independent for more than a year can join the 7in7 family. We curate content for those of us who’ve been nomads for 3, 7, or even 15+ years.
- An intimate space. Attendance is capped at 100 nomads to allow you to truly connect with speakers, founders, panelists, volunteers, and fellow attendees.
- Less sitting, more engaging. We prioritize community-building with more small-scale breakout sessions and meetups, less sitting quietly in big theaters.
- A whole week of content. From small meetups and epic parties to intensive workshops and challenging talks, the week is jam-packed with valuable events!
- The people! The reason alumni return again and again: to make friends, build projects, start movements, and shape the future of location independence.
More than 30 experienced digital nomads have already got their tickets for Year Five.
Don’t miss your chance to join them!

Year Five Venue
The Watershed – a converted warehouse full of light, local shops, and gorgeous views of Table Mountain – is our home base for this year’s event! We’re setting up shop on the upper floors, with both the workshops and the main stage event being held in the Workshop17 space.
There’s plenty of free coworking tables (with built-in plugs), a coworking space with unlimited wifi, private meeting rooms, coffee, ice cream, fresh juices, hammock chairs, and even a massage stall – what more could nomads need?!
Located right in the heart of the V&A Waterfront, this central spot is home for all 7in7ers coming to Cape Town!
17 Dock Road
“Thank you for creating such an amazing movement and conference that focuses on what really matters.”
“An amazing event with incredible people and I am so honored to have been a part of it.”
“I loved the diversity of the speakers. It was so lovely to look on the stage and see so many women and people from diverse backgrounds.”
“So often you go to conferences and they just teach you stuff, and you don’t get the opportunity to share and discuss. 7in7 gave us the opportunity to choose our own adventure.”
What to Expect
Entrepreneurs, writers, CEOs, wanderers, and other nomads pulled directly from our community – all ready to share their knowledge.
Panels, Q&A Sessions
You know those great conversations you have with other nomads over coffee? Like that, but with an audience. Dating? Dealing with burnout? Travel with pets? We’ve got answers to all your most urgent questions.
Get hands-on with experts on topics like self defense or starting a podcast. Limited attendance, no counterprogramming.
Get together with other nomads who want to talk about setting up a home base, perfecting a podcast, or even organizing a nomad visa. Propose your topic and dive in deep!
We built a platform to host your own meetups! Challenge people to a game of Throw Throw Burrito, get your shavasana on with fellow yogis, or have flat whites with beautiful nerds who podcast. Find your people.
We all love a good bash. We promise an Insta-worthy closing party and opening happy hour so you can mingle with all of your newest nomadic best friends. Fun for introverts and extroverts alike!
The party doesn’t have to end with the conference! Roll up your sleeves and ready your laptops for a chance to give back to our wonderful host cities. Learn about our volunteer opportunities from the past four years.
Fantastic People and Where to Find Them
The best part of any conference is the connections you make with fellow attendees. Come be a part of this fantastic, close-knit community of experienced nomads. Who knows what friendships, businesses, and movements we’ll create together in Year Five?!
A Beautiful City
Cape Town is epic. It’s got hiking. A gorgeous waterfront. An inescapable sense of happiness stemming from the fact that you’re just minutes from penguins at any given moment.

What Digital Nomad Life is Really Like
“7in7 co-founder Kit Whelan has been blown away by the feedback she’s had from attendees. ‘We just brought people together – that’s the magic. It’s not some big secret!’ she says. I can’t wait to experience it first-hand in Wellington. Topics under discussion will include mental health for digital nomads, burnout, and how to manage remote teams.”
The Digital Bromad: How Toxic Masculinity Thrives Abroad
“Organizations such as SheNomads and Digital Nomad Girls aim to guide women through the process of location-independent working. And, conferences that aren’t specific to women are building their values around ensuring inclusivity for less-privileged nomads. A good example is the 7in7 Conference, which is held on a new continent every year and co-founded by Kit Whelan.”

7in7 Conference: The Power of Real Connection and Growth
“One of the things that I loved most about 7in7 was the fact that it was such a diverse group of people attending and speaking. The 7in7 team really makes an effort that the people whose voices and stories are being shared are those who might not have a platform in ‘typical’ larger scale conferences, although their work is just as valued.”
