This moment, as soon as the lights go out in the hall for the first time and the IMS festival trailer is started, is a very special one for the entire IMS team. Here we go again, the IMS time is starting. Now it has to prove whether the arduous preparation time has paid off.
The certainty of taking up the challenge again to inspire visitors, to prepare the big stage for great speakers, to study the weather forecasts for the hike every day and to allow for unique encounters changes all participants to some extent.
This International Mountain Summit will also leave its mark on the mountain soul of all visitors and participants. It is a great pleasure to start the festival with two top-class speakers.
Look forward to the most distinguished intellectual in the German-speaking world Richard David Precht and the gifted photo & video journalist Ulla Lohmann.
