On Sunday, May 18, Tallinn will host the grand finale of the European journey "Dancing Latitudes," a three-week adventure for e-residents and digital nomads. Starting in Lisbon, this tour passed through ten major European cities, culminating at the Latitude59 startup conference in Tallinn. The event will be followed by the inaugural Nomad Fest in Tallinn on May 25 and 26.

The journey began in early May, with stops in Lisbon, Porto, Madrid, Barcelona, Paris, Amsterdam, Hamburg, Copenhagen, and Stockholm. Over 20 travelers, including event organizers and winners of city-wide pitching competitions, are expected to arrive in Tallinn.

The idea was the brainchild of Estonian entrepreneurs and e-residents Christoph Huebner, Ignacio Nieto, and Miguel Piñas, with logistical support from Dani Maletic, organizer of Ireland’s digital nomad festival NomadÉire. The team managed to plan and execute the entire journey within six weeks.

Each city hosted unconference events and pitching competitions, attracting 20-30 digital nomads and entrepreneurs on average. These events not only fostered networking and collaboration but also boosted local tourism by drawing participants from various regions.

Barcelona's event, marked by a record turnout, concluded with a lively tapas evening. Success was replicated in each city, with engaging discussions and innovative pitches. Notably, AI themes were prominent, with winning ideas like an AI-based language learning tool in Barcelona and a deep tech platform inspired by the Ukrainian refugee crisis in Amsterdam.

Social media coverage of the journey’s highlights was managed by Mary Grace Nguyen, while Giang Lu Kim created the visual identity for the travelers. AI expert Seth Ward, an e-resident and core team member, handled marketing and automation, showcasing the digital nomad lifestyle’s appeal.

The journey’s culmination in Tallinn includes the Latitude59 conference and the first-ever Nomad Fest Tallinn. Partnering with Lift99, the organizers aim to gauge interest in making these events a recurring feature in Tallinn.
