5-day nomad non-conference
What is a Non-Conference?
An out-of-the-box alternative to conferences and the currently popular ‘unconference’! (We just like being different…) Think networking event meets business retreat meets beach holiday, all set against the beautiful backdrop of the tropical island of Koh Phangan in Thailand.
We’re putting together a fantastic itinerary that incorporates all the benefits of your typical conference, such as key notes from industry professionals, events and activities to help you build your network, masterminds, sharing skills and knowledge, but without the formality and barriers to participation. Instead you will find an inclusive and relaxed atmosphere that creates space for peer-to-peer learning, collaboration, creativity and of course lots and lots of fun.
But our non-conference doesn’t stop there. We’ve included a mix of activities designed to benefit both mind and body. Like ice-baths, nature hikes, meditation, yoga, HIIT sessions and Muay Thai classes—all while expanding your professional horizons. As well as a few that won’t benefit your body as much, but will help everyone get to know each other a lot better and keep us entertained in the evenings…
Embrace the future of work, connect with like-minded individuals, and redefine the conference experience with our DNA Non-Conference in paradise. Join us for an unforgettable combination of learning, networking, relaxation and good times!
why you should join us
Our event isn’t your typical suit-and-tie affair— instead we’ll provide a mix of insightful talks, interactive discussions, and fun activities while you enjoy a tropical paradise in your shorts and flip flops.
You’ll be a part of exclusive sessions led by business professionals who’ve mastered their respective fields. From marketing experts to experienced venture capitalists, to start up entrepreneurs, to social media influencers, to extreme sports champions, our speakers will explore a wide range of intriguing topics that should keep us all entertained and inspired.
Beyond the event, you’ll be able to experience Koh Phangan, an up-and-coming digital nomad hotspot. You’ll be able to immerse yourself in the local culture, uncover hidden gems, and benefit form our insider knowledge about the best places to work, eat, explore, and party.
And with the beach just steps away, you can unwind and recharge between sessions with the waves and sand beckoning you to relax, and unplug.
If you need to catch up on work, there will be plenty of opportunity and space to do so at our own co-working spaces or those of our partners that we will be visiting. We provide the ideal environment to plug in, focus, and make strides on your projects as well as all the other stuff mentioned above.

Final Unconference Sessions & Masterminds

After a hard day of work and play in paradise, they say the best thing to do is have a BBQ on the beach with new friends. And who are we to argue?
We finish where we started with a final Tiki Beach Party to end off the conference and enjoy the last evening together.
