Based on my experience of living as a digital nomad and observing the behaviours of other digital nomads, I will discuss:

  • the characteristic motivations, mobility and work practices of digital nomads;
  • the implications of the emergence of digital nomads for organisations that seek to attract digital nomads to their regions (such as government agencies or tourism practitioners), and;
  • the relevance of digital nomads to South Australia.

This presentation is an extension of the one I made in February at ENTER 2019, the 26th Annual eTourism Conference at the Hilton Cyprus in Nicosia, Cyprus. It revolves around a research paper I co-authored with Marianna Sigala, Ruth Rentschler and Stephen Boyle (all from the School of Management at the University of South Australia), titled Motivations, Mobility and Work Practices; The Conceptual Realities of Digital Nomadswhich has been included in a book titled Information and Communication Technologies in Tourism 2019.
