The rise of remote working in Ireland goes way deeper than just allowing people to work at home for a couple of days a week. The Grow Remote conference will explain more. 

Do you want to learn more about remote working in Ireland and its benefits? The Grow Remote conference will take place in Tralee on September 28. 

Remote working brings tangible benefits to rural communities, towns and villages. It allows people to chose to work and live in areas often forgotten by Ireland’s centralised economy.

Over 200,000 people also work remotely in Ireland and this number is set to grow as the various economic and social repercussions of Ireland’s Dublin-centric economy start to bite hard.

Grow Remote is a voluntary organisation to support remote workers and their employers and to encourage more remote working opportunities in Ireland. 

“The full-day conference will highlight the benefits of remote working, not just for businesses, but for workers and the communities they live in.”

Grow Remote’s stated aim is to increase employment in rural Ireland by building a tighter community and ecosystem around smart working (home, remote, blended, and flexible).

Grow Remote says it was set up to champion companies that offer remote working and encourage others to do so; connect remote workers to each other and create more opportunities; and, enable town groups to discover remote working companies and link them to their community.

“Tralee is going to be the first town in Ireland to host the ‘Grow Remote’ conference on September 28.”

The conference

Are you a remote worker? Does your business employ people who work remotely? Do you want to learn more about the benefits of remote working?

Tralee is going to be the first town in Ireland to host the ‘Grow Remote’ conference on September 28.

The full-day conference will highlight the benefits of remote working, not just for businesses, but for workers and the communities they live in.

A host of international speakers will appear at the event.

Gabe Karp, director of Europe at 10up will be speaking at the event as 10up continues to grow across Europe. “As a remote digital agency, we believe strongly in the power of remote teams,” says Karp. “As we grow, we would love to find design and engineering talent in Ireland. We need an active community in this space to make that happen and this is a great event to kick-start that.”

The event is supported by Kerry County Council, Tralee Chamber, Bank of Ireland, HQTralee and Abodoo with tickets starting at €30.
