We, the XR Nomads, are VR/AR creators from around the world, traveling together and settling in a new city for a month. We stay in luxury co-living housing and develop groundbreaking VR/AR content in fancy co-working spaces. We'll integrate with new cultures, make lifelong friendships, and build our passion projects with like-minded people.
Our goal is to travel around the world, share unforgettable moments and kick off new immersive collaborative projects.
You can work on your own entrepreneurship project, get inspired by other fellow nomads and use the chance to look at things from a new point of view.

1) Accommodation in a high-end apartment, in-style and design.
2) Join a local XR hackathon with the XR Nomads team.
3) Share local adventures from Jet-skiing to bungee jumping!
4) Two group dinners a week at the most famous regional hot spots.
5) Participation and networking at XR conferences and workshops.
6) Explore a different VR/AR culture and be inspired by VR/AR arcades.
7) Free co-working space in the hippest area of town.
8) Looking to see a different kind of VR/AR lab? Be inspired!
XR Nomads program is specifically designed for VR/AR and XR people.
All equipment will be provided in the co-working area.
We will visit the biggest and most known conferences/hackathons in every place we visit. We are pretty sure that you will find what you look for!
There are two tracks: One for beginners where you dive into the XR world and learn fast and another for professionals where you are allowed to work on your own projects. Depending on your prior knowledge, we believe we have the right package for you!
