For nine years now the International Mountain Summit (IMS) has been drawing mountain enthusiasts from all over the world to Brixen in South Tyrol. The main slogan of the week-long festival, to be held from 9 to 15 October 2017 in the Forum Brixen, is “Meet.Mountain.People.Soul”.
Notable contributors also feature prominently in 2017, including mountaineering legends such as Reinhold Messner and Peter Habeler, interesting figures such as Samuel Koch or mountain medicine practitioners from around the world. There will be encounters with these mountain people and the mountains themselves in the context of speeches, talks, discussions, film screenings and walks.
The highlight of our IMS Special is the chance to meet Reinhold Messner personally. All Vitalpina guests present at the IMS evening event, to be held on Monday, 9 October, will have the opportunity to take photos and have autographs signed with the mountain legend in the exclusive “Vitalpina VIP Zone” for 30 minutes from around 6.30 pm onwards.
