Starting in 2012 for the first time ‘PEGASUS Courtyard Dresden GmbH’ kindly supported by ‘zmdi Schachfestival Dresden e.V.’ invites all Grandmasters of FIDE turning 75 years and above to a spectacular event into the chess capital of Germany, Dresden.

This annual event will take place from 23-25 August 2012 in Dresden.

The main idea of the IGM Chess Summit is not to focus on chess but to provide a basis for all invited Grandmasters to exchange their experience and ideas, socialize and do networking.

Evening: informal reception at the lovely Castle Albrechtsberg
Friday, 24 August 2012 Morning: voluntary sightseeing tour through beautiful Dresden
