About Homebase Global

HOW IS HOMEBASE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER REMOTE-WORKING PROGRAMS?

Our main focus is to organize an incredible networking experience for you, while at the same time keeping you productive. Flexibility and a good work-play balance will be key features during your stay with us. We’ll help you boost your business while making you experience your new Homebase like never before.

We’re all travelers, we have that in common. This time we don’t want to just drop by a city. We want to feel like locals! We’ll introduce you to the city and provide you with everything you need to know to make it feel like home. We’re not a remote-work-program that just ends after 2 weeks. We give you an introduction to your next Homebase and you can choose however long you’d like to stay.

Home means a lot more than the apartment you’re staying at and a city that you know your way around in. It means being part of a great community and the feeling of belonging. The activities and networking events we’re planning in Barcelona will give you just that! And since all participants arrive at the same time, you’ll have friends to explore the city with from the very first day.

WHO CAN JOIN?

Homebase Global is designed for open-minded remote workers, digital nomads, entrepreneurs and freelancers. Pros who travel and work from anywhere, as well as beginners who are just getting started with the lifestyle, and have the desire to stay productive and feel like a local in a new place from day one. People, who want to belong to a community where members can learn from each other and share amazing experiences together.

DO YOU RECOMMEND HOMEBASE FOR REMOTE TEAMS?

Absolutely! Homebase is the perfect way to get in touch and connect with other nomads and remote workers. If you would like to bring more than 5 of your team members, we’re happy to offer a discount. Simply get in touch with us at info@homebaseglobal.com.

CAN I BRING MY PARTNER/FAMILY ALONG?

Yes, your partner, business partner or family members are more than welcome to join and share this unique experience with you. 

Please note, that your partner or adult family member needs to pay the full price to participate in our program as they’ll be full members of our community.

DO YOU OFFER SPECIAL PROGRAMS FOR KIDS?

Unfortunately we don’t organize a dedicated program for children, but many of our events will be kid-friendly so they’ll be more than welcome to join in.

WHAT TRAVEL DATES DO YOU RECOMMEND?

We’ll start with the first networking events a few days prior to the official kick-off of our events. That’s why we’d recommend you arrive in Barcelona already at the end of October. Your departure date is totally up to you. Our goal with this event is to make you feel like a local in the city so that you’ll want to stay forever…or at least until your visa runs out 🙂

Program & Activities

HOW IS THE PROGRAM ORGANIZED? HOW CAN I CONTRIBUTE?

Homebase Global is all about community. The saying “the more you share the more you have” couldn’t be more true here, that’s why all participants can and should contribute to the program to get the best out of it. We’ll set-up the framework for you – provide venues, tools, facilitation – and then the rest is up to you! It really doesn’t matter whether you want to organize a workshop, a beach volleyball afternoon or a hike in the mountains – the important thing is to share knowledge and experiences, and to inspire each other.

If you would like to contribute, please fill out our speaker form here. We are looking forward to hearing from you!

HOW WILL HOMEBASE GLOBAL BE STRUCTURED? WILL I HAVE FREE TIME?

Absolutely. Being productive, focusing on your business and taking it to the next level is an essential part of Homebase Global. This is why we’ll let you get things done during the day, and only organize programs in the morning or evening hours, and on the weekends. We’ve also got you covered if you have more free time on your hands: we’ll recommend many activities outside of the official program, so that you can enjoy all that Barcelona and its surroundings have to offer – to the fullest.

WHAT KIND OF ACTIVITIES DO YOU PLAN TO ORGANIZE?

If you decide to join Homebase Global event, one thing is for sure: you won’t be a moment’s boredom!

We’ll also arrange free and paid activities outside of the working hours so that you can connect with your new friends on a whole new level and experience the city like you should. And if you still can’t get enough of your homebase, we’ll share some hints and tips for other cool things to do during your stay.

Accommodation & Others

DO YOU PROVIDE ACCOMMODATION?

The “Live” package is our only offer that includes accommodation. For more details on that, please jump to the next question.

The packages “Basic” and “Work” do not include accommodation. Nevertheless, we’ll recommend specific neighborhoods to stay in. We strongly encourage you to search for a place to stay in these areas. That way, we’ll all be close to each other. This makes community-building and organisation of events and activities a lot easier. And why wouldn’t you want to stay in the hippest areas anyway? 😉

WHAT TYPE OF ACCOMMODATION DO YOU OFFER WITH THE LIVE PACKAGE?

Having a nice and comfy place to stay at is an essential part of feeling at home. This is why we only offer top notch, beautifully furnished apartments with 3-5 bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, a workplace and good wifi. Our apartments are located in the heart of Gracia, so all the action will be within easy walking distance. You’ll never miss a thing if you decide to stay with us!

We offer single rooms, shared rooms with double beds for couples, and shared rooms with separate beds for friends – all with shared bathrooms. So who are you coming with?

You can see some examples of the apartments you can choose from here.

I WILL BE JOINING HOMEBASE ALONE, BUT I WANT TO SHARE AN APARTMENT AND NEED A ROOMIE. CAN YOU HELP WITH THAT?

Sure thing! Once you booked your Barcelona Homebase, you can either make a suggestion of who you would like to share your room with or we will choose another lovely participant of the same sex and similar age for you. Not only will you share the costs, but also bond on another level.

When you share your room with a friend or with another participant, we will provide you with two separate beds.

WHAT CLOTHES SHALL I BRING?

The average daytime temperatures in November are around 17°C whereas the average minimum temperatures can drop down to 8°C. Make sure you bring several layers so that you’re ready to adapt to any weather condition and are prepared for an evening drink at one of the buzzing squares of the city. Also pack an umbrella and a pair of waterproof shoes so that the occasional rain or drizzle doesn’t stop you from going out.
